Devil May Cry 5 has been rated M for mature players over the age of 17. The game also has ‘in-game purchases’ which could mean there are some microtransactions in the game. Hopefully microtransactions are not a huge part of the game. Anyway the content descriptors say the game features the following: Blood, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, Violence.
The rating summary says: “This is an action game in which players follow the story of three heroes (Dante, Nero, V) in their quest to save the world from demons. From a third-person perspective, players use swords, guns, and special attacks (e.g., a prosthetic hand with electric bursts) to kill hordes of demons in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by gunfire, screams of pain, and slow-motion finishing moves/highlights. One cutscene depicts civilians screaming in pain while being impaled by demon tentacles. Blood appears frequently during combat and stains several environments. Some female characters are depicted partially nude, with their breasts and buttocks minimally covered by blood, light, or clothing. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue“.
Devil May Cry 5 is the proper sequel to 2008’s Devil May Cry 4. The game has nothing to do with the 2013 reboot called DmC: Devil May Cry which was developed by Ninja Theory. The game releases on March 8th, 2019 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Here’s a short synopsis for the game posted below from the Steam listing.
The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a “demon tree” take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter Nero, arrives with his partner Nico in their “Devil May Cry” motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms to give him extra powers to take on evil demons such as the blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.
