The Devil May Cry series is 18 now - it has been absorbing players around the world since 2001, but for many years it was only available for the PlayStation. The latest version of this iconic title - Devil May Cry 5 - was released in March 2019, so this is a completely new game. DMC 5, like in the beginnings of the series, was created by Capcom and is available on all platforms.
Devil May Cry 5, like the previous parts of the series, is an action slasher played in TPP mode. It tells the story of Dante. Dante, who is half-human-half-demon, has been fighting various forces of evil for years. The story of Devil May Cry 5 is set directly after the events which were presented in Devil May Cry 4. In the fifth part, we can also control three playable characters, which we have already encountered in the previous part.
The story of Devil May Cry 5 begins at the moment when a huge, mysterious tree grows from underneath Red Grave City. Its roots drain life from the city and its inhabitants. Dante, Nero and the mysterious figure named V, together try to defeat the lurking forces of evil.
The extensive combat system allows a variety of attack combinations. The game is based on a system very similar to the one known from the previous parts of the series. Devil May Cry 5 is not a classic sandbox, but the maps offer many activities. Tasks and quests are not as linear as in the previous installments.
The world of Devil May Cry 5 is strongly modeled after the game Dragon's Dogma - another game from the creators of DMC. This is a title that is really worth spending some time on.
