Can my PC run Devil May Cry 5?
From sword-swinging and gun-wielding to motorcycle-mashing and Faust hat-throwing, the heavily stylized action of Devil May Cry 5 looks to be nothing less than spectacular. Follow the newest chapter in Dante’s story set several years after the events that transpired in Devil May Cry 2. Despite the lack of financial success from Devil May Cry 4, Capcom and Hideaki Itsuno believe that this entry into the franchise will win back the hearts of many of their disgruntled fans. This game represents one of the largest jumps in system requirements for sequential games in a franchise in recent years. With the promise of 60 FPS across all systems and a photo-realistic graphics style, the vast increase in hardware requirements should come as no surprise.
The minimum system requirements for DMC5 are even above the recommended requirements for DMC4: Special Edition which came out in the middle of 2015. DMC5’s release date is fast approaching (March 8, 2019) so there’s no better time to prepare your PC for one of the most anticipated action games. Unfortunately for AMD users and enthusiasts, Capcom has only listed Nvidia and Intel requirements (for the time being). They named the GeForce GTX 760 as the minimum GPU needed to play Devil May Cry 5, and the approximate AMD equivalent of that is close to a Radeon HD 7870 or Radeon R9 270. Currently, Capcom is listing the Core i7-4770 as both the minimum and recommended CPU model. The i7-4770 is on the higher end of CPUs and will definitely be a concern for gamers trying to get their PCs over the minimum requirements.
In addition to the aforementioned recommended CPU requirement, in order to max out the settings in Devil May Cry 5, PC gamers will also need a GeForce GTX 960 (or the AMD equivalent which is close to a Radeon R9 280). Whether you’re slicing and dicing with your newest blade, or you’re getting ready to pull the trigger on the newest demon, pushing this game to its max is sure to present some beautiful eye candy to action game enthusiasts. If PC gamers have a hard time passing the requirements for DMC5, they could check out Warframe, a free-to-play action shooter with a healthy dose of melee weapon-oriented combat. On top of being free-to-play, Warframe has significantly lower system requirements while still being a visually impressive game.
One last note from Capcom is that they suggest players use a controller/gamepad for an optimal playing experience.
