Devil May Cry 5 is the direct sequel in the acclaimed franchise and takes place years later with a new set of characters. The title looks absolutely stunning running on an Xbox One X because it achieves high visual fidelity while maintaining its smooth gameplay. While the game hasn't generated as much hype in recent months, it still looks like a compelling experience which may receive critical acclaim when it launches in March.

Today, Capcom released a new demo on the Microsoft Store. Luckily, the file is already live in the New Zealand Microsoft Store. You just have to click on the link provided at the bottom of this page and it will take you to the demo. Just redeem it for free and download it to your console. Some users who game share may have to change their console region to New Zealand to see the demo in "Ready to install." After downloading the file, you can immediately change your region back and play it.

According to Capcom, director Hideaki Itsuno and the core team have returned to create the most insane, technically advanced, and utterly unmissable action experience of this generation. That's a tall claim. The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a "demon tree" take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter named Nero arrives with his partner Nico to stop the threat.

  • I have always loved Devil May Cry but have never played this game :D :D
  • Devil May Cry is amazing. Cant wait. I'm glad they stuck to true Hack n slash. As good as God Of War is, it's not a Hack n slash anymore. And that is still very disappointing. And I know a lot of God War old school fans weren't happy with the change to a more TLOU version of God Of War. So I'm happy to see a developer stick to its series roots.
  • This game runs native 4k on X1X?
  • I should hope so, it's not exactly pushing any boundaries graphically.
