Last night fans of video games around the world gathered to watch The Game Awards hosted live in Los Angeles. Capcom and Microsoft had some pretty big news for fans of the upcoming Devil May Cry 5. Starting today a live demo is available for anyone playing on an Xbox One device! Players get to take control of the young demon hunter Nero to get a feel for how combat and game play will function. There is no shortage of enemies to deal devastating attacks and see how Nero’s Devil Breaker arms really pack a punch. Players will also get to experience the use of his “Red Queen” sword in combat as well as his “Blue Rose” handgun. All of this combined makes for a pretty thrilling demo to get us all pumped for the upcoming release.

This wasn’t the only thing they had to share regarding Devil May Cry 5. Fans also got their first inside look at the third playable character, V. While he might seem weaker than his counter parts, don’t count our new favorite poet out though. V has the ability to summon not one but three different demons to fight by his side. With the use of his three demons, players can bring their enemies to the brink of death, leaving V to come in and finish the job. With this type of unique game play style V is sure to become a fan favorite in no time.

The final two announcements of the night was the return of Bloody Palace mode and new details on the cameo-system for online play. Bloody Palace mode is a quick play onslaught of mobs and bosses the player will need to fight until they reach the end. This is a great way to test your skills in (almost) never ending combat against your friends. The cameo-system brings some light multiplayer action to Devil May Cry 5 by allowing a player to interact with other players in game. In some cases players will be able to help each other fight demons within Red Grave City. They can even rate their in game cameos if they have some stylish skills.

Devil May Cry 5 is set to release on March 8, 2019 for Xbox One, Ps4, and PC.
