Vergil is the star of the show here, and he plays almost exactly how you’d expect if you’ve played any of the previous games. While there’s certainly more in-depth thoughts on the cool, calm and collected brother of Dante, it’s obvious that Vergil is a lot more technical than the other playable characters. Returning from Devil May Cry 4 is the “Concentrate” mechanic, which allows Vergil to amplify and augment his attacks when he behaves calmly rather than erratically.
Choosing the like-for-like graphical experience, DMC5 SE can target a full 2160p at 60fps on the new consoles, but it can also go much further than that. Ray traced reflections, lighting and shadowing is also an option, but this comes at the cost of forcing to either halve the frame rate to 30fps, or sacrifice resolution for 1080p60. We’d pick 1080p60 over 2160p30 in this case. The other option is to go for high frame rates, with screens and TVs that have a 120fps mode allowing you to play at an almost locked 1080p120, furthering the fluidity of the game’s silky smooth animations.
