After years of waiting, Devil May Cry 5 is almost upon us but if you’re still on the fence about pre-ordering, there’s some nice DLC to sweeten the pot.
If you grab yourself the Deluxe Edition of the game, you’ll add some exclusive, brand new Devil Breaker Weapons to your arsenal, as well as new Battle Music, Alternative Voices, and most surprisingly of all, changes to live action cutscenes.
Weapon wise, you’ve got Sweet Surrender which is a Devil Breaker armed weapon created by Nico, built using soft materials. It even has comfort options for shoulder and hip pain with its in-built vibration system. How considerate!
Another special Devil Breaker is also available – The Gerbera GP01 – created by Shoji Kawamori. This one actually fires shockwaves from the fingertips, which is monumentally impressive.
Coolest of all, the Mega Buster pays homage to Capcom classic, Mega Man, with long range attacks and side roll and jump moves. This would be my personal favourite, to be honest.
And last, but most definitely not least, a Pasta Breaker! Yeah, this one is actually an arm that uses a revolving fork. I mean, it’s not the most effective battle weapon, but then who actually wants a spinning fork in their eye. Certainly not me!
You also gain early access to the Buster Arm, which is one of Nero’s newer Devil Breaker weapons.
Don’t worry, though, Dante isn’t getting left out, as you can bag his Cavaliere R weapon, customised by Nico. This one looks suitably bad ass and deadly in equal measure.
Costume packs are also thrown in with Alt Heroine and Hero Colors. Nero and Dante have got their own looks, with Nero getting a blonde hair, white coat look, while Dante sports some dark hair, in a dark trenchcoat. Certainly different.
As for Nico, Lady, and Trish, each of them have also had some tweaks and changes to their design to completely change their appearance from their default models.
And if the Deluxe Edition still isn’t sounding bumper and packed, then you’ll also get a wealth of Battle Tracks from Devil May Cry 1, 2, 3, and 4 along with some alternative Style Rank Announcers and Title Calls, should you want to mix things up a bit.
The icing on the cake, though, are the Live Action Cutscenes, which actually change in-game engine cutscenes to live action movies which were recorded during development. They’re basically live action story boards which you’d never normally see as they’re reserved for the development process, but Capcom have decided to throw them in anyway. This is a really unique, cool, and interesting take and was actually previewed back in December in a short, 20 second clip.
You’ll even get 100,000 Red Orbs as a Pre-Order bonus so you can unlock all of Nero’s initial skills, and even have some left over for health upgrades.
All of the above is exclusive to the Deluxe Edition which can be grabbed for £52.99, which seems well worth the extra for all the additional stuff in it. Definitely one of the better Deluxe Offerings with DLC.
Devil May Cry 5 releases on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 8th.
