Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition for PC, PS4 and XONE is an enhanced version of the fourth installment of the popular slasher game series by Capcom, previously released in 2008 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Although it was developed mainly with consoles in mind, digital edition for PC has also been made available.

Plot

The protagonist of the series produced by Shinji Mikami (co-creator of the Resident Evil franchise) is a young man named Dante, who wants to take revenge on demons that killed his mother. Thanks to his unusual powers, such as the ability to turn into a demon, Dante can bring death to all kinds of filthy creatures ravaging the world. The fourth installment introduces a new hero, Nero, a member of the Holy Knights. Having witnesses his fellow knights being slaugthered by Dante, Nero vows to avenge them. As the game progresses, we learn why the previous protagonist became a villain, and who really is responsible for the story's events.

Mechanics

Like the previous installments, Devil May Cry 4 is a dynamic TPP hack'and'slash game, in which you explore the world, solve puzzles, and battle hordes of demons. In combat, you fight with many kinds of swords and guns, including magical ones. Depending on the character you play as, you can also use special abilities such as the Devil Bringer, which can lift every weight and defeat every opponent. The key to success is using complex attack sequences that deal massive damage to enemies. The game also features a simple character developement system which allows you to unlock new items and abilities as you play.

Technical aspects

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition for PC, PS4 and XONE features enhanced graphics in 1080p and 60 FPS. However, the developers didn't just upgrade the visual layer and fix minor technical issues, which sped up the gameplay and improved its balance. This edition also provides you with three new playable characters, Vergil, Trish and Lady, who you can play as during Nero and Dante's missions. The game also features the Legendary Dark Knight Mode for the more experienced players, previously unavailable on consoles. The special edition is complemented by a set of extra outfits and skins for the playable characters.
