Face your Demons with Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition!
Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and will be available to purchase as a digital download in Summer 2015. The Special Edition will include the original 2008 release, which went on to sell over 3 million copies worldwide, plus three new playable characters, Legendary Dark Knight Mode and additional gameplay improvements. We’ve just released the debut trailer for the title to showcase the new and improved features from this critically-acclaimed chapter in the legendary Devil May Cryseries.
Although he’s not the main star of the show, Dante’s twin brother Vergil is stealing the spotlight. He arrives in Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition as a playable character, complete with upgraded moves and graphics since his appearance in Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition. The ladies are also taking center stage, as players are now able to control the action as the mysterious Trish taking on Dante’s missions in the main story and, for the first time ever in the Devil May Cry series, the demon hunter Lady taking on Nero’s.
In Legendary Dark Knight Mode, first introduced in the PC release of Devil May Cry 4, console players will now be able to take on the challenge of fighting hordes of enemies all at once, putting their stylish combat skills to the ultimate test. In this mode, enemies spawn in bigger numbers, and with more strength and vitality, allowing players more time to execute longer, more exciting combos.
Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition features freshly powered up visuals on PC and next gen consoles, supporting a 1080p resolution and stunning high-res textures as well as retaining the original title’s smooth 60fps. Further improvements to the game tempo and balancing will be made, while maintaining all the quality of the original game.About Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition
