New Difficulty "Legendary Dark Knight"
This new mode features an absurd amount of enemies that you won't see in normal mode. Perhaps this mode's difficult will even surpass the "Hell and Hell" difficulty of the original game...?Check Out The Differences Between Difficulty Levels Here
Intense Action With Turbo Mode
By activatign Turbo Mode, you'll be able to accelerate the game to 1.2 times speed. This will make your gameplay even more stylish and fast-paced, making executing blinding fast combos even more satisfying!
A New World Of Max 120 FPS
By enabling High Frame Mode you'll be able to enjoy Devil May Cry 5 at a brilliant, high-speed 120 frames per second. You'll be able to toggle this mode on/off as you wish.
Enhanced Realism via Ray Tracing
By using cutting edge Ray Tracing technology to make the reflections of light on mirrors and water even more dynamic you'll be able to play an ultra-realistic version of DMC5. This function can also be turned on/off freely from the graphic options menu, and you'll also be able to choose between prioritizing resolution (roughly 30 FPS at 4k) and prioritizing frame rate (roughly 60 FPS at 1080p).
Things to Note
The above mentioned "Turbo Mode", "High Frame Mode", and "Legendary Dark Knight Mode" will prioritze object display, and will therefore not work with Ray Tracing.
Also, the Ray Tracing feature for the Xbox Series X version of the game will not be available immediately after launch. It is scheduled to arrive in a post-release update.
