We might’ve just gotten our first glimpse into how quickly Capcom’s, Devil May Cry 5, will load on Sony’s next generation hardware. Sony recently had Japanese YouTubers go hands on with the PlayStation 5 in a preview event dubbed, Try! PlayStation 5.
Here, YouTuber’s gave impressions on the controller and system itself while they also showed off new gameplay for titles like, Godfall, Astro’s Playroom and Balan Wonderland. One of the other titles shown off that, admittedly flew under the radar was, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. A supped up version of the 2019 game with added features like higher frame rate and being able to play as Vergil.
In the video below, you can see the player loading into the mission in 4 seconds, as opposed to the typical, above 20 seconds you’ll run into on the Playstation 4.
Funny enough, if you actually want to read the tips the game provides during load screens, Capcom does have a prompt that will allow players to jump back in at their own pace. So, theoretically, the speed in which some of these games can load, will fall on the player’s shoulders to decide. We’ve seen a similar thing with Godfall’s loading screens as well.
In the clip above, the game finishes loading in 4 seconds but the player took an extra few seconds to actually press the prompt, presumably to read the tips on screen.
All in all, seeing proof of the PlayStation 5’s SSD in action, with games like Ratchet & Clank, Demon’s Souls, Godfall and now Devil May Cry 5, lets the games do the talking without the need for influencers to say how much faster the load times are.
For games on the PlayStation 5, this looks to be just the tip of the iceberg, as games with virtually instantaneous load times will soon be the norm. Seeing these clips, allows gamers to judge for themselves and personally, the results look damn promising so far.
