Steam Deck showcase Devil May Cry 5 gameplay

According to a new video that has been released online, Devil May Cry 5 appears to look and operate fantastic on the impending Steam Deck.

The Steam Deck Gameplay Video, which has been posted on the Devil May Cry official YouTube account, shows the game operating off-screen on Valve's new platform, but it appears to be up to the task of running Capcom's latest entry in the series.


Despite Valve's track record for producing high-quality goods, there have been some reservations about the Steam Deck's ability to run some of gaming's most technically demanding games. With a recent video displaying Devil May Cry 5 functioning on the next portable system, Capcom is attempting to assuage such anxieties.

The Steam Deck is one of gaming's most eagerly anticipated pieces of hardware, as the promise of a portable PC feels like a dream come true for many gamers, especially those who have been disappointed by the Nintendo Switch's lack of hardware updates, which is currently the only major handheld console. Unfortunately, the Steam Deck's release date has been moved back from December to February 2022, which means that customers who pre ordered the system will have to wait a bit longer to play PC games on the road.

Although the video is about a minute long, it shows Nero, Dante, V, and Vergil hacking and slashing their way through swarms of demons without a single missed frame. There are no stutters, chunking, or screen tearing, and brilliant effects don't produce even a minor hiccup

We've seen the Deck perform admirably in Witcher 3, Portal 2, Left 4 Dead, and Control. Now it appears that Devil May Cry 5 can be added to the list of authorized titles. Valve's little portable is shaping out to be a powerhouse.

While the Deck's primary goal is to allow consumers to play current games on the move, Valve may also be working on a brand-new Half-Life experience for its embryonic handheld PC. It's certainly not Half-Life 3, but it's billed as a "nostalgia-fest" aimed to showcase the Deck's potential..


Few fans can blame Valve for the shipment delay, especially given how difficult gaming hardware production has become as a result of the continuing chip scarcity affecting every platform in the games industry. Most fans are just eager to get their hands on a Steam Deck since each fresh piece of information about it, like the video showing DMC5 running flawlessly, makes it appear better and better.

Devil May Cry 5 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Special Edition is only available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
