A TGS demo and PlayStation Store listing have revealed Devil May Cry 5 will have both microtransactions and some form of online multiplayer.
Fans have been able to play DMC 5 at TGS 2018 this week, which led Gamespot to notice that players can pay real world money to purchase the series’ in-game currency, red orbs.
The orbs, which traditionally are never abundant enough to unlock absolutely everything, are used to purchase upgrades to weapons, new moves and one-off consumables.
When asked why these were being included, series director Hideaki Itsuno said it was all about player choice. “With giving people the ability to purchase Red Orbs, it’s something we want to give people as an option. If they want to save time and just want to get all the stuff at once, those people can do that.”
