Devil May Cry 5 Features Online Co-Op
WIth a brand new trailer coming from The Game Awards 2018, Capcom has confirmed that Devil May Cry 5 is supporting online co-op gameplay.
As explained in a post on Capcom Unity, the dev team has built "a system where, while connected to the Internet, players will make guest cameo appearances in each other’s games in real time, or through ghost data gameplay recordings."
"Depending on the mission, you’ll see another player in the background, but in other cases, you’ll actually be slicing and dicing demons side-by-side with another players!".
This basically means that certain missions will only be playable in single-player, probably depending on the story portions they're set in.
Director Itsuno-san wanted the game to be "primarily a single player experience" but also to "tell an epic story with three distinct perspectives and play-styles, where the main protagonists run into each other and collaborate from time to time."
A Devil May Cry 5 demo is now available on Xbox One, while other demos are expected to drop on other platforms soon, too.
