Devil May Cry 5’s Special Edition, which includes new features and a playable Vergil, releases digitally today for Xbox Series X and S and November 12 for PlayStation 5. Physical versions for both consoles will be available on December 1. Both the digital and physical versions cost $39.99.
The Special Edition heightens the award-wining, stylish action experience of the base game with next-gen features, enhancing visuals, audio and performance. Players can enable increased frame rates of up to 120 FPS and play in 4K fidelity on supporting consoles. Plus, on Xbox Series X and PS5, battle amid life-like reflections, pooling shadows and vivid lighting using ray tracing technology. The Xbox Series S will not support this feature, however.
Enhanced 3D audio helps players maintain their Smokin’ Sexy Style through the frenetic action and pulse-pounding score by allowing players to hear enemy movements above, below and to any side of their character with pin-point precision. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition also includes all Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content from Devil May Cry 5.
The power of next-gen consoles allows players to experience the added challenge of the Legendary Dark Knight difficult, which adds numerous enemies to each encounter, and the increased speed of Turbo Mode for maximum stylish combos.
Finally, the Special Edition introduces a playable Vergil to the latest installment in the Sons of Sparda saga, allowing players to tackle all the game’s missions in Vergil Mode, and the Bloody Palace challenge mode as the infamous Dark Slayer.
Starting December 15, all Vergil content will also be made available as DLC for current owners of Devil May Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for $4.99.
