According to Capcom VP William “WBacon” Yagi-Bacon, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PS5 and Xbox Series X will feature multiple performance options, offering players flexibility in how they want to play.

Here are the following performance options that you can choose from:

  • 4K, 30fps, ray tracing ON
  • 1080p, 60fps, ray tracing ON
  • 4K, 60fps, ray tracing OFF
  • Up to 120fps, ray tracing OFF (no resolution specified)

Capcom announced Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X during the PS5 showcase in September. Unlike most other games that are offering a free next-gen upgrade, DMC5 Special Edition is priced at $39.99 and offers a bunch of new features, including making Vergil a playable character.

On the technical front, DMC5 Special Edition will feature hardware ray-tracing, which players can choose to turn on or off. The game also supports 120 FPS gameplay, which can be enabled by turning on the High Framerate Mode. However, you'll need a compatible TV that supports a 120Hz refresh rate to make the most of this mode.

In addition to the visual upgrade, DMC5 Special Edition also features 3D audio and faster load times, which the PlayStation blog post describes as "crazy fast". According to Sony, 3D Audio will enable players to pinpoint enemy locations. Moreover, the Special Edition for Devil May Cry 5 also takes advantage of the PS5's DualSense functionality, resulting in improved haptic feedback.

Besides the technology improvements, DMC5 Special Edition also offers new gameplay content. To begin with, DMC5SE will bring back the fan-favorite Turbo Mode, which runs the game at 1.2x speed, slightly faster than normal speed. There's also a new Legendary Dark Knight difficulty being added to the game, which increases the number of enemies per encounter. Finally, Capcom has addressed the most-requested feature - playable Vergil. While Vergil will be a part of DMC5SE for free, the character is stuck as a paid DLC for the PS4, PC, and Xbox One versions of the game.

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is releasing on November 10 and November 12 for Xbox Series X/S and PS5, respectively.
