Our solution also includes a description of the basics of the game, which will be particularly useful for new players, with no prior DMC experience.

The initial chapters of our guide describe the basics, which include starting tips, a description of controls, trophies, and achievements to be unlocked and other important information about the game. You will also learn what level of difficulty is best to choose at the beginning in order to enjoy the right pace of the game.

Subsequent sections of our guide are devoted to heroes in the game. In Devil May Cry 5 you will come to direct Dante, Nero and the mysterious V.

In separate sections of our guide, we have also provided information about the key characters involved in the game and described them. These are Nero, Dante, V, Eva, Griffin, Shadow, Nico, Lady, Trish, Morrison.

Devil May Cry V is based on the same principles as the previous parts. Namely, this is a slasher with an extensive combat system. The game has been divided into stages, after finishing which the game gives us the appropriate score. Of course, the developers also prepared a handful of novelties, such as sandbox elements. While designing the world, the creators drew inspiration from Dragon's Dogma. Although we are, of course, not dealing with a classic sandbox, maps give much more freedom than before. As a result, the movement of the character outside the fight has been improved, and the exploration resembles that of the Bayonetta series (however, the hero is not limited by the stamina bar).

Although the game does not lack spectacular scenes, none of them are based on QTE sequences. The combat has also been improved, but we cannot speak of a revolution. The fights are diversified by interactive environment elements, and in addition, from time to time we take part in large battles, reminiscent of musou games, in which we fight against many enemies at the same time. However, the most effective, demanding and complex are the boss encounters - one fight can be divided into several sequences taking place in different locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is Devil May Cry 5?

It takes about 15-20 hours to complete the campaign in Devil May Cry 5. At this time, you can unlock all 12 side missions and find most of the collectibles in the game. Of course, as the game progresses, higher difficulty levels are unlocked, which offer a much greater challenge and significantly lengthen the time needed to complete it.

I didn't play earlier versions, can I start with the 5th one?

Capcom prepared a short film in the game menu, which rehearses the events from earlier installments. Hence, it's easier to get the bearings of the plot and start the adventure with DMC5 without major obstructions. The plot of this installments has been presented in such a way that only at the end of the game we will have a full picture of all the events and the knowledge of previous installments is not necessary to enjoy the captivating story.

Devil May Cry 5 is the Sequel to the Second or the Fourth Part?

Initially, DMC5 was supposed to be a continuation of the second part, but as the production cycle progressed - the devs changed this decision and now DMC5 is continuing the history of the fourth part. This can be a bit strange given the end of the second part, and Dante's stay in hell, but it does not spoil the reception of the game in any way.

Does DMC5 Have a Very High Level of Difficulty?

Capcom decided not to torture the players, who are just discovering the DMC series and offers a really approachable level of difficulty. There are only two levels of difficulty at start: the easiest one is reserved for less experienced slasher enthusiasts, while the Demon Hunter offers a higher level of challenge, while still not being overly difficult. Once you've completed the story, you can unlock further difficulty levels.

How many characters can you control in Devil May Cry 5?

In Devil May Cry 5 you can control three characters and they are Dante, V, and Nero. Each of the heroes uses an entirely different combat strategy and has its own roster of moves and weapons. The campaign is interwoven with missions so that each of the heroes can be controlled for a similar amount of time.

What does the DMC5 keyboard control look like?

Although it is possible to finish the game on the keyboard... it is quite troublesome. It was apparently very difficult for the creators to prepare controls when each character has a different set of moves and additional gadgets. It is definitely better to use a gamepad to quickly master the control.

Devil May Cry 5 Video Game

Devil May Cry 5
  • genre: Action

  • developer: Capcom
  • publisher: Capcom
  • platform: PC, PS4, XONE

Another entry in the famous series of hack'n'slash games that tell the story of Dante Ė a half-man, half-demon hybrid who fights various creatures.

Devil May Cry V is another entry in the popular series of slasher games developed by Capcom. The previous game in the series, DMC: Devil May Cry from 2013, was developed by Ninja Theory. The fifth entry was created by the authors of previous entries in the series, including Hideaki Itsuno, a developer of the role-playing game Dragonís Dogma.

The game is a direct sequel to the fourth entry in the series. Devil May Cry V is a more serious game than its predecessors and it presents Dante in a slightly different way.

Devil May Cry V for PC and PS4 is based on the same principles as its predecessors. It is a slasher game with advanced combat system. The game is split into levels, completing which is awarded with grades. The developers introduced some novelties, including sandbox features. While designing the world, the developers took inspirations from Dragonís Dogma. Although the game isnít a typical sandbox, the maps feature much more freedom than previously. Due to that, movement of the protagonist off combat has been improved and shifted more towards to the mechanics known from Bayonetta (however, the protagonist isnít limited by a stamina bar). Although the game doesnít lack spectacular scenes, they arenít based on QTE sequences.

The combat was improved as well, although it lacks any revolutionary changes. The surroundings feature interactive objects that can be used in battle. In addition to that, players participate from time to time in large battles like in musou games, where one must face many enemies simultaneously. The most spectacular, challenging and advanced battles are the ones against bosses Ė a single duel can be split into a few sequences that take place in separate sceneries.

Unreal Engine, a technology used in games like Gears of War 4, Playerunknownís Battlegrounds and Street Fighter V, was used for the development of Devil May Cry V for PC and PS4. The title works in 60 frames per second and it features dynamic camera system that for example moves away from the character during combat with large groups of enemies. It is worth mentioning that the cutscenes in the game were directed by Yuji Shimomura who also worked on the third and fourth game in the series.

Onyay Pheori (who also worked on Devil May Cry 4) helped in composing the soundtrack to the game. Rueben Langdom once again dubbed Dante while Johnny Young Bosch played Nero and Dan Southworth acted as Vergil.
