The Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition release date has been locked in for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. What’s more, the developers have announced the Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition Vergil DLC release date alongside a powerful pre-order bonus for players who pick up thet game on consoles.
When is the Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition release date?
The Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition release date will be November 10, 2020, for the Xbox One and November 12, 2020, for the PS5. The original version of the game sold millions of copies in its first few weeks, so some of those players will surely pick up the newer version of the game.
Devil May Cry 5 hasn’t innovated much on the game’s combat system, although it nonetheless maintains the typical fast-paced chaos that players have enjoyed from previous entries in the franchise. The next-gen launch will let players experience that same great combat in 4K resolution with Direct X Ray Tracing and other improvements. Notably, fans who pre-order or purchase the game for either the PS5 or Xbox Series X by November 18, 2020, will secure a free pack of 100,000 Red Orbs to help them get a head start on the game.
When is the Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition Vergil DLC release date?
The Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition Vergil DLC release date has also been announced as December 15, 2020, following the confirmation of the game’s release date and pre-order bonuses. Unfortunately, players won’t be able to get this DLC for free — the Vergil DLC will cost $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99 when it launches later in the year.
Vergil is being added as a playable character in Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition owing to “overwhelming fan requests.” Capcom is more than happy to give fans the opportunity to play this iconic character from the franchise, but they’re going to have to wait for a few weeks after launch. On the upside, players will be able to use him pretty much anywhere in the game: Story Missions, the Bloody Palace, and The Void.
