A previous Denuvo-free version of Devil May Cry 5 released in error was claimed to increase the game’s frame rate by up to 20fps for some users.
The first mainline series entry to be released in over ten years, Devil May Cry 5 is primarily a single-player title, but it introduces a Cameo multiplayer system that enables online players to make guest appearances in each other’s games, either in real time, or through ghost data gameplay recordings.
Since the game’s release in March 2019, Devil May Cry 5 has sold some 2.7 million units, according to Capcom. According to the publisher’s records, only DMC4 (3m) has sold more copies in the franchise.
