Along with the news that Xbox owners are getting a free Devil May Cry 5 demo tomorrow, new gameplay footage was shown. The text attached to the trailer talked about the game’s 4K optimization on Xbox One X, reading: “Devil May Cry 5 will reach the most powerful console in the world already in the spring! You won’t be able to resist the game optimized for Xbox One X at 4K and HDR! The demo is available tomorrow!"

Overall the trailer looked amazing and got us excited for the game's release early next year. Later today, there will reportedly be even more Devil May Cry 5 news at The Game Awards which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. (PST) and 8:30 p.m. (EST). We're guessing the trailer pulled from the Xbox Portugal page will be put back up after The Game Awards concludes. 

Right now, Devil May Cry 5 is scheduled to release on March 8, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. As we wait for The Game Awards to begin, what do you think of the news that Xbox One owners will be able to check out an exclusive demo starting tomorrow?
