The Special Edition features the expected visual, audio and performance upgrades. Here’s the technical improvements:

Players can enable increased frame rates of up to 120 fps, play in stunning 4K fidelity on supporting consoles, and battle amid the life-like reflections, pooling shadows, and vivid lighting created using ray tracing* technology.

Enhanced 3D audio helps players maintain their Smokin’ Sexy Style through the frenetic action and pulse-pounding score by allowing players to hear enemy movements above, below, and to any side of their character with pin-point precision. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition also includes all Deluxe Edition and EX Color Pack content from Devil May Cry 5.


* While ray tracing will be available as a downloadable title update on Xbox Series X, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will not support ray tracing on Xbox Series S.

The tech upgrades for the new consoles also comes with a new setting for the Legendary Dark Knight difficulty with new enemies and increased Turbo Mode speed.

Vergil is also added to the saga, which also includes the Bloody Palace challenge mode.

On Dec. 15 all Vergil content will be DLC for gamers who purchased Devil May Cry 5 on the PS4, Xbox One and Steam for $4.99.
