Gaming News Roundup: Devil May Cry is back!

December 21, 2014

Plus a trailer for Grand Theft Auto Heists!

DmC: Devil May Cry will be making its way to current generation consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) next year, Capcom has confirmed. The ‘Definitive Edition’ of the hit video game will include enhanced graphics and will be running at full HD 1080p at 60 fps. Also included in the definitive edition are:

  •  New Skins — 2 new character skins. Devil May Cry 1 Dante and Classic Vergil.
  • Turbo Mode — Turbo Mode returns to the Devil May Cry series, with the game running 20% faster in this mode.
  • Hardcore Mode — Hardcore mode retains the experience of DmC, but with a throwback to the classic Devil May Cry games in terms of balance. In this mode, which can be toggled on all difficulty levels, the style system has been rebalanced to make ranking up much harder and ranks deteriorate much quicker. In addition, Devil Trigger doesn’t launch enemies into the air, parrying takes more skill, and all enemies hand out more damage.
  • Manual Target Lock — We’ve seen more requests for this than any other feature! The manual target lock works as closely to the classic Devil May Cry lock on as possible and has fully configurable controls.
  • Vergil Bloody Palace — Only second to Manual Target Lock in terms of the number of fan requests! This is a new Bloody Palace mode featuring 60 levels and Vergil as the playable character.
  • Must Style Mode — This is a hardcore modifier on an epic scale that can be played over any difficulty level. Players must be at an S rank or higher to deal any damage to enemies.
  • Gods Must Die Difficulty Mode — This is DmC Definitive Edition’s hardest difficulty mode. It takes DmC’s ridiculously hard Dante Must Die mode and adds a touch more punishment: All enemies spawn with Devil Trigger active and no items or health drops can be used.

DmC: Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition will be released on March 17, 2015. Check out the trailer below and be sure to watch it at full HD with 60 fps turned on to see the best possible effect.

Grand Theft Auto Online: Heists

Rockstar has finally unveiled a trailer for the heists mode on Grand Theft Auto Online. The four-player co-op mode will let you and your friends plan, prepare and execute various Heists across the fictional city of Los Santos and the rest of Blaine County. “These will require tight communication and coordination, with players taking on specified roles at each point to accomplish multiple objectives on the way to each Heist’s epic finale. Featuring new gameplay, new vehicles, new weapons, new clothing and much more,” Rockstar said on their blog. Heists should be available for all current GTA Online users after the PC version has shipped next year. Watch the trailer below:

Until Dawn

Until Dawn is looking to be a must play exclusive on the PlayStation 4, and PlayStation’s YouTube channel has just released a 7 minute playthrough of the game which you can watch below.

Until Dawn is a horror game that lets you play the part of eight friends stuck in a remote cabin being stalked by a deranged serial killer. Very Evil Dead-ish it seems, but judging from the trailer, it seems that this game will put you face first as you explore the horrors of Blackwood Pines (where the game is set). Also expect slasher-style gameplay that uses the same ‘who has done it’ formula commonly used by horror movies.
