Devil May Cry 5 is the latest installment in the acclaimed franchise and continues the story of characters like Dante and Trish. This time around, the cast is joined by Nero, Nico, and a mysterious individual named V. After V hires Dante to rid himself of a demon king, the botched mission results in a quest for redemption. You take control of a number of characters — each with distinctive playstyles — as you hack and slash your way through the insane campaign.

Devil May Cry 5 is now available on Xbox One and PC for $60 and doesn't feature a season pass at the moment. However, that doesn't mean the game isn't getting other content. Today, Capcom announced that the "Bloody Palace" is coming to the game on April 1 as a free update. It's widely expected that the Bloody Palace will add another playable character and either a competitive or co-op multiplayer mode.

Devil May Cry 5 looks absolutely spectacular on Xbox One X because it runs at 4K 60 frames per second. The visuals are crisp too, but it's unclear if it features native or checkerboarded rendering.

In our review, we said, "Ever since Capcom launched Resident Evil 7, the company has maintained a stellar track record. Monster Hunter: World was exceptional, and everyone loved the company's new take on Resident Evil 2. Devil May Cry 5 may not be on the same level due to its restrictive environments and inability to break free of the franchise's rigid format, but it's absolutely mind-blowing when it comes to gameplay."
