Game of The Month – Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry 5 is an action-adventure hack and slash video game developed and published by Capcom. It is the fifth instalment of the Devil May Cry series and was released on the 8th March 2019 on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The story is set several years after Devil May Cry 4 and the gameplay features the return of Dante and Nero as playable characters, along with a new character named “V”. The gameplay is similar to the other titles in the series, focusing on fast-paced stylish action. The player fights off hordes of demons with a variety of attacks and weapons and receives a style-rating in combat based on a number of factors, such as move variety, the length of a combo and dodging attacks. As well as this, the music in the game will change based on the player’s performance in combat, and the game runs on the RE Engine, first used in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, offering photo-realistic graphics at 60 frames per second.

You can find out some more information on the game and order at http://www.devilmaycry5.com/. You can also watch a developer interview here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULZ_EMAzF54. Enjoy!
