A demo for Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 will be available tomorrow, according to a Facebook post from Xbox Portugal. Although the message has since been deleted, it contained a new gameplay video, which we expect was supposed to make its debut at The Game Awards later today.
The video showed that the demo will be available exclusively on Xbox One on December 7, and also confirmed that Bloody Palace mode will return for the fifth mainline entry in the series. Bloody Palace will be introduced as a free update for Devil May Cry 5 in April 2019.

Developed internally at Capcom, Devil May Cry 5 is set for a worldwide release on March 8, 2019 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game was last publicly shown at X010, the Microsoft event held in Mexico. Producer Matt Walker and director Hideaki Itsuno appeared on stage to discuss Void Mode, a training suite that’s designed to teach players the intricacies of playing Devil May Cry 5.
Devil May Cry 5 casts Nero as its leading man again. However, Dante, the most recognizable–and most beloved–character in the series will also be. We’ve seen a fair bit of both of these characters in action, however there is a third character joining them called V. Little is known about V, as he is a completely original character created for this game. Devil May Cry 5 is set years after the Devil May Cry 4, with Nero now running his own demon-hunting company.
We had the opportunity to play the game earlier this year at Tokyo Game Show. You can read our impressions of Devil May Cry 5 to find out what we though, and we also have a gameplay video above where you can see it in action. If you’re eager to put your money down and get prepared for Devil May Cry 5’s release, you can start pre-loading the game now.
