Devil May Cry 5 is currently playable at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, and today I got to go up close and personal with the Xbox One version of the game running on Xbox One X.

I honestly have no words to describe how impressed I am with the game’s visuals. They look extremely detailed, and the game felt smooth as silk. This is a testament to the Resident Evil Engine, which appears to be very capable with a genre that is definitely very different from Biohazard.

The action feels extremely good, and I really enjoyed my limited time with Nero. Unfortunately, the Goliath got the best of me at the end of the level, but I’d say I need some work getting used to the controls to win against that one.

You can watch the full video below. If you want to see more, you can check out the latest trailer, and a batch of lovely screenshots.

Devil May Cry 5 releases on March 8th, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

If you’d like to reserve a copy, you can already pre-order it on Amazon.
