Devil May Cry 5 Gameplay

Devil May Cry 5 is the continuation of the DMC series in the genre of action-adventure slasher, which tells the story of the best demon hunter. The game is the fifth main original Devil May Cry series and the sixth part of the franchise. Capcom studio was responsible for development and publishing. The game was released in 2018.

The action takes place a few years after the fourth part in the city of Red Grave. This time the player will have to play several characters at once - Dante, V and Nero (with the DLC, it will be possible to play as Vergil). Once again, the world is under the threat of an attack by demons, and an unknown force begins to spread across the Red Grave. Playing the above heroes, you have to challenge the leader of the demons Urizen, as well as again take part in the eternal rivalry between the two brothers.

The gameplay has retained all the key features of the previous parts. The player will have to move through large locations, completing the assigned tasks and goals. At the same time, it is necessary to quickly and stylishly fight the hordes of demons trying to stand in his way. The battle is carried out using a variable set of melee and ranged weapons. At times, there will be puzzles, boss battles and other unique gameplay features.

Combat system

One of the best elements of Devil May Cry 5 gameplay is the combat system. The player, as before, will have to quickly and stylishly deal with enemies, using a choice of a specific weapon from a variety of offered ones. The battle is carried out using a variable set of melee and ranged weapons, which gives the player a particular "style level". This level depends on many factors, such as the variety of techniques used, the length of the combination itself, or the evasion of attacks. One of the features is the musical accompaniment in battles, the duration of which will also depend on the player's effectiveness in combat.

The player has the opportunity to purchase new combat techniques for the hero in the store.

New fighting techniques will increase the strength and effectiveness of the hero in battle and make them even more dynamic and spectacular. There will be three characters in total with their own fighting style, weapons and techniques.

Graphic component and development of the environment

In terms of graphics, Devil May Cry 5 has taken it to a whole new level. The latest in computer graphics technology has enabled Capcom to create superior visuals. Each location is highly detailed. It should be noted that individual elements of the environment are destructible. High-quality cinematic cutscenes worked out to the smallest detail deserve a separate word. A superbly fitting dynamic soundtrack complements the picture.

Opponents

During the passage of Devil May Cry 5, the player will meet a wide variety of opponents with unique behaviour patterns. For each of them, you need to select your own strategy and weapons. The player will be provided with various types of melee and ranged weapons and certain ammunition and techniques for them.

Devil May Cry 5 is an excellent sequel to the DMC series that all fans will love. The title is also recommended for fans of games such as Bayonetta and NieR: Automata.
