Devil May Cry 5 Introduces New Training Mode Called The Void
Practice your combos and other combat mechanics free of hassle.
By Chris Morse
A new gameplay mode for Devil May Cry 5 has been detailed by Capcom in which players can freely practice the game’s combat without any pressure. The Void is a first for the series and is a combat sandbox of sorts, complete with customizable options that will allow you to dive deep into the mechanics of the game, wield a variety of different weapons, practice Devil Breakers, and more.
In this mode, you can make a number of tweaks to your experience, such as your combat load-out and toggling enemy damage on or off. This allows you the flexibility to either practice combos in a vacuum or raise the stakes to improve your mastery of the game. Enabling damage also gives players the ability to crunch some numbers and really see what works best in what kinds of situations.
“The Void is a place where players can experiment with enemies, weapons, moves, and combos,” explained producer Matt Walker. “It’s a place where someone who’s new to the game can gain mastery of it, or where DMC fans can perfect their techniques and hone their style.”
The above video introduction to the new gameplay mode was revealed at X018 and served as an overall update on the game’s final stretch of development, highlighting the previously-unrevealed gameplay mode and giving fans a little bit more to be excited about. The game, after all, is all about style and executing amazing combos is a big part of that. We suspect this practice mode should help get you up to speed on the new gameplay relatively painlessly.
Devil May Cry 5 arrives on March 8th, 2019 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
