Devil May Cry 5 May Feature Online Multiplayer – Rumor


As the most recent entries in the series, Devil May Cry 5 will feature multiple playable characters, but it seems like the new entry in the Capcom series will take things a bit further, judging from the game's PlayStation Store listing.

Multiple regions' PlayStation Stores, including US, Canada, UK, and Italy, mention a 2, 3 players online multiplayer option for Devil May Cry 5. Online multiplayer is mentioned in the descriptions of both regular and Deluxe editions.

Devil May Cry 5 having a multiplayer option would be a first for the series but not for character action games. Bayonetta 2 also features one which works quite well. Considering the Bloody Palace will surely make a return in the entry in the series, it wouldn't be surprising to see a co-op or versus mode variant for it.

Even without multiplayer, Devil May Cry 5 is setting out to be one of the best entries in the series, building upon the features that fans have come to love.

The biggest takeaway from the combat is that it’s just as fast-paced, engaging and a great spectacle as it has ever been. It’s only made all that more impressive by the simply astounding aesthetics within the game. Using the REngine, Devil May Cry 5 looks fantastic, every demon showing little details like goo dripping from them, horrible pulsating veins and more.

In addition to the visuals, the music is also fun and engaging. It ramps up in intensity depending on your actions in battle, with your increased rank also bringing in an increase in the audio. It’s a fun system that helps you keep track of your combat score. None of this should come as a huge surprise to anybody familiar to the series though. Adding to the great music is strong audio from the characters, monsters and the effects of battle. Everything just has that bit more weight to it.

Devil May Cry 5 launches on March 8th, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
