How Long Does It Take To Beat Devil May Cry 5?

"Devil May Cry" is one of the most beloved action hack-and-slash series ever, but it has had its share of ups and downs. For example, "Devil May Cry 2" and "Devil May Cry 4" are considered awful sequels by many standards. The failure of "Devil May Cry 4" resulted in the series going in a different direction, with "DMC: Devil May Cry" reinventing the series for western audiences. However, it was met with a mixed response, with long-time fans unsatisfied with the reimagining. So naturally, many were thrilled to hear the series was returning to its roots with "Devil May Cry 5," and when it was released, it blew gamers away, smashing records across the board.

Now that the game has arrived on PlayStation Plus, now is the best time to hop into the series, especially since the PlayStation version includes exclusive content, such as access to Turbo mode. But how much content is available in "Devil May Cry 5?" Some may wonder if it has the same amount of content as the rest of the "Devil May Cry" games, which take anywhere from 5-10 hours to beat. Here's how long it takes to beat "Devil May Cry 5."

It takes around 11 hours to beat Devil May Cry 5

According to howlongtobeat.com, it takes gamers, on average, 11 hours to complete "Devil May Cry 5." But for many, that is just the start of the journey. "Devil May Cry 5" is a game crafted to be completed multiple times. After finishing each playthrough of "Devil May Cry 5," a new difficulty setting is unlocked. These harder difficulties are no joke, with the hardest of the six titled "Must Die," giving enemies access to Devil Trigger. Luckily, progress is saved each playthrough, so players can continue to level up their characters and obtain all the unlocks.

There are also Secret Missions players can partake in that offer hours of fun in addition to bonuses. Once the player beats the game for the first time, they unlock the option to play through the game as Dante's evil twin brother, Vergil, as in previous entries.

Because of its bonus content and replayability, gamers average 67 and a half hours to one hundred percent "Devil May Cry 5" (per howlongtobeat). Although such a task may prove difficult to some, at least players won't need to beat the most frustrating boss in the series.
