Devil May Cry 4 Demo Hits Thursday

Devil May Cry 4 Demo This Thursday

That’s right, this Thursday the playable demo for Devil May Cry 4 will be downloadable through both the Playstation Store and Xbox Live. Awesome, I can’t wait to play the game. All the details are below:

Warm those broadband connections. The Devil May Cry® 4 playable demo hits both the PLAYSTATION®Store and Xbox LIVE® Marketplace this Thursday, January 24, 2008. Devil May Cry 4 has been rated M for Mature by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB).

The demo introduces gamers to the gothic-inspired supernatural world of Devil May Cry 4, new protagonist Nero and the awesome power of his Devil Bringer. The demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full game, chosen to showcase Devil May Cry 4’s varied locales, allowing gamers to familiarize themselves with Nero’s unique abilities. Players will receive instruction on the various new actions that the Devil Bringer bestows, such as the ability to slam creatures to the ground, cover great distances in a single bound or even grab enemies while on the ground or in the air and pull them towards Nero to continue an attack combo. The Exceed system allows Nero to “rev up” his sword as if it were a motorcycle throttle and unleash devastating attacks. Players will need to master all these techniques before the end-of-demo showdown with the mighty Berial.

Fully demonstrating the power of the next generation of consoles, the Devil May Cry 4 demo brings to life the coastal city of Fortuna and its surroundings in exquisite detail, such as the port and the snow-capped mountain ranges. Devil May Cry 4 delivers its intense action at a constant 60 frames per second at 720P resolution on HD monitors, ensuring seamless and breathtaking gameplay in stunning high definition.

Devil May Cry 4 Collector’s Edition Details

Devil May Cry 4 Collector's Edition Details

I love this collector’s edition trend in video games. It’s like the developers are thinking “Well…if we have a collector’s edition, people will think it’s a good game…let’s throw in some art book or some crap.” Unfortunately , I buy into it every single time. I don’t care what it is, as long as the game case says “Collector’s Edition” on it somewhere, I’ll shell out that extra $10.

Devil May Cry 4, however, is a pretty big title, so I would expect a collector’s edition…February 5th can’t come soon enough. Here’s what you get: Continue reading Devil May Cry 4 Collector’s Edition Details
