Capcom does not plan to release Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PC because it is made for PS5 and Xbox Series X [VIDEO]

The Japanese developer confirmed it in statements to Eurogamer.

The latest PlayStation 5 event left a new Capcom game: Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will arrive on the launch day of PS5 and Xbox Series X to both consoles in digital format (later in physical). Well, computer gamers wondered if this version, which will feature substantial graphical improvements and new game modes, would make its way to PC. The answer is no, Capcom confirmed.

In a statement to the Eurogamer portal, a Capcom spokesperson justified the decision: “Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is being developed and optimized specifically to benefit the system architecture and the jump in processing power offered by PS5 and Xbox Series X , so we are focusing on these platforms. ”

“Currently, there are no plans to release Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PC.”

And in case there is any doubt about the refusal of the Japanese developer, the spokesperson was very blunt: “Currently, there are no plans to launch this version on PC.” This has fallen like a cold water jug ​​in the PC community, which does not understand why Capcom does not release this version on PC, when it is to be expected that a similar or better equipment than the consoles could move the game.

In fact, Devil May Cry 5 on PC has suffered some review bombing on Steam in the last few hours from some players very unhappy with Capcom’s decision. What will come to PC and current consoles is the DLC that introduces Vergil as a playable character. If you missed the information on this new version of Capcom’s game, here you can find out all of it and see the first trailer.

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will arrive on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and it will do so in digital format the same day that the consoles go on the market; November 19 and 10, respectively. The physical version will come out later, on an unknown date.

The Special Edition will bring new content that we detail below and graphic improvements only possible on new generation consoles. In addition to all the news, it will bring all the additional content sold separately from the original version, including the contents of the Deluxe edition update, the EX colors and costumes that were only available as pre-order bonuses and the Bloody Palace mode.

The new update will make use of ray tracing to show better graphic finishes but, be careful, as we can read on the official website, this lighting technology will arrive first on PS5. On launch day, the title will be ray traced on PlayStation 5, but Xbox Series X will be coming later with an update. This new version will also incorporate 3D sound and reduce loading times. In addition, the game will make use of the features of the PS5 DualSense.

The game will bring a multitude of graphic options and will allow us to modify them to our liking if we have ray tracing activated. For example, we can select 1080p and 60 fps, or 4K and 30 fps . In addition to that, the title will bring a high frame rate mode, which will make the game can even reach 120 fps . Of course, object rendering will be prioritized and ray tracing will be automatically disabled when high frame rate mode is in use, or when playing Turbo and Legendary Dark Knight modes.

These two modes are precisely added to the title. On the one hand, Turbo mode increases the base speed of the game by 20%. On the other hand, the Dark Knight mode will face us against a huge number of enemies, something that seems to have been possible thanks to the new consoles.

Finally, Capcom has announced that Vergil, Dante’s twin brother, will arrive as a playable character, both in story mode and in the Bloody Palace. This DLC can also be purchased on PS4, Xbox One and PC, although there is no date available.
