'Devil May Cry 5' Demo: Start Time and How to Download on Xbox One and PS4

The second Devil May Cry 5 demo is about to get underway and fans of the series will want to give this next test run a spin because it'll have even more content than the first one did in December.

Unlike the first demo, which was exclusive to Xbox One, PS4 players (sorry PCMR) will finally get into the demo-slaying action. Capcom will show new footage from the second Devil May Cry 5 demo on its Capcom TV broadcast around 6 a.m. EST. So if you're on the fence about whether to download and play the demo, you'll want to check it out.

If you're looking to download and get the most out of your Devil May Cry 5 experience, here's all the information you'll need including the start time and what you can do.

The second Devil May Cry 5 demo will be available on Thursday, February 7. The exact timing is unclear, but prior demos are usually available to download at 12 a.m. EST. West Coast players will get a chance to download and play on 9 p.m. PST on February 6.

As always we recommend having a strong internet connection when downloading the Devil May Cry 5 demo by hooking your system to an ethernet connection, if possible.

To download the demo, simply head to the PlayStation (PS4) or Microsoft (Xbox One) stores and search Devil May Cry 5. The demo should appear.


DMC fans will be able to play a similar demo to the first one released by Capcom. However, players will be able to use the new Devil Breaker "Punch Line," and take a look at inside Nico's shop.

Players will be able to save their game so there are endless chances to play through your demo session as many times as you want to fill out Nero's move list.

If you're not familiar with Devil May Cry 5, here's a synopsis of the plot of the game:

"The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a "demon tree" take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter Nero, arrives with his partner Nico in their "Devil May Cry" motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms to give him extra powers to take on evil demons such as the blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath."

Devil May Cry 5 will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 8.
