Gamescom 2018: Watch 15 minutes of Devil May Cry 5 gameplay

The action series looks every bit as intense as expected. The video ends with a boss fight, of course.


Gamescom 2018 is underway in Cologne, Germany and the reveals are rolling out. Later sometime today, gamers and journalists around the world will get to see a "system update" for CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077, but Capcom is already out of the gate with a lengthy gameplay video for the long-awaited hack-and-slash sequel, Devil May Cry 5.

Those lucky enough to be attending Gamescom 2018 are treated to a hands-on experience with DMC 5 and YouTuber Arekkz Gaming shared his video sometime this morning. After he introduces the video while getting through the menus, you're treated to 15 minutes of combat, exploration, and a scattering of cutscenes.

The gameplay video above does end with a boss fight, so this is a pretty solid slice of the upcoming DMC 5 experience. There's going to be a lot more videos and reveals as Gamescom 2018 goes along, so stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
