Devil May Cry 5 got a lot of details revealed here at Tokyo Games Show, the recent is the game will feature the micro-transactions. This was discovered by Gamespot who got the opportunity to try the demo behind closed doors.
If you have previously played Devil May Cry games then you must have the idea that when you interact with Divinity Statue, it allows you to buy orbs and or buy movesets. Gamespot discovered that in Devil May Cry 5, the Divinity Statue acts as shop and from there you can buy the orbs with real money. This will be only necessary if you want to upgrade or unlock Dante moves early in the game.
When asked from Game Director Hideaki Itsuno about the micro-transaction in a single player game like Devil May Cry 5, he replied:
With giving people the ability to purchase Red Orbs, it’s something we want to give people as an option. If they want to save time and just want to get all the stuff at once, those people can do that. But on the other hand I don’t feel you have to get all the moves
To our knowledge, features like micro-transaction only come in multiplayer games. Knowing that a single player game like Devil May Cry 5 featues micro-transaction is a bit disappointing. However, this feature was only present previously in Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, which was a remastered version of DMC 4.
When further asked from game director on how the micro-transactions and early access to moveset and items will impact the gameplay, he replied that it is an optional method and only should you want to save time you can now by buying red orbs with real money. However, it will be far better if you follow the course of game and unlock movesets, learn the skills and know how to switch between them to gain advantage in combat.
Devil May Cry 5 will release on March 8, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Steam platform. PC requirements of the game were revealed recently, along with the information that the game may support multiplayer feature.
