This time, Sony console loyalists will be able to join in on the fun as well.

The window on downloading the Xbox One-exclusive demo of Devil May Cry 5 has officially closed, but there is some good news. Capcom shared an announcement on the game’s official social media accounts stating that although you can no longer download the demo, those who already did can still play it as long as it’s on their systems. Furthermore, a new demo will arrive early next month that will this time be inclusive of those who do not own an Xbox One.
The tweet, which we have included below, reveals that a new demo will arrive on February 7th for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like there will be any demo for PC players, but this is at least better than the last round, right? Check out the post below.
Huge thanks to everyone who downloaded and tried out the #DMC5 Xbox One demo! As of today, it will no longer be available for download, but it's still playable if you have it on your system.— Devil May Cry 5 (@DevilMayCry) January 7, 2019

To recap, picking up the collector’s edition of Devil May Cry 5 will get you a replica model of the motor home in which our heroes take their demon slaying on the go. Also included is an art book that contains imagery from the game as well as notes from Nico's Workbench. In addition, the collector's edition includes a pin, bumper sticker, and 11" x 17" cloth print featuring our full cast of characters. Finally, it all comes in this very special box designed to look like an item trunk, matching what you might find in the game being used by series newcomer Nico.
This collector's edition is so far available for only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players, with no PC version of this collection to be found at this time. If you're not quite ready to shell out extra money for a collector's edition of the game, you can order up the standalone regular and deluxe editions to get your demon slaying fix that way. Be sure to select your platform of choice.
Devil May Cry 5 arrives on March 8th, 2019 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
