Devil May Cry 5 Lets You Choose From Multiple Characters For Certain Missions
Devil May Cry 5 has been exploding with news lately, with one of the more recent announcements for Capcom’s latest entry in the series revealing that a third character named V will be playable alongside Dante and Nero. Now, it appears that players will be able to choose from multiple different characters for certain missions in their bid to survive the demonic onslaught to Red Grave City.
The news comes by way of Capcom producer Matt Walker, who confirmed on Discord (via Resetera) that some missions in the game will allow you to choose from two characters, while others will allow you to choose from all three of the playable characters in the game. This is of course alongside the missions that will force you to play as one specific character.
This isn’t a new feature for the Devil May Cry series, though in past entries it was moreso touted as a new game mode, such as playing through the entire game as Vergil rather than Dante. That said, in previous entries the character selection had no bearing whatsoever on the linear story, whereas in Devil May Cry 5 we will likely be given different boss scenarios and one-liners depending on which character is chosen for the mission.
In related news, it was revealed recently that optional upgrade microtransactions will be available within the game, for those looking to shell out some real cash for red orbs that will allow them to upgrade their character’s abilities. While there was at first some growing contention due to the decision to implement microtransactions from the get-go, it was later revealed – once again by Matt Walker – that the red orb drop rates are the same as they’ve always been in other entries in the series.
Devil May Cry 5 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 8th, 2019.
