It's at a bit of a strange age for a re-release, but 2008's Devil May Cry 4 is making a return this summer as the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. A lot's happened since then, so we can expect a veritable glut of graphical and gameplay improvements for Vergil's hack 'n' slash adventure. Three new playable characters are also joining the party, alongside the return of the PC-exclusive Dark Knight mode. 

Of course better visuals means better hardware is needed, and we've got the officially Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition system requirements so you can see at a glance whether your gaming rig's hellbound or heavenwards.

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ 2.9 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce 8800 GTS or Radeon HD 3850
  • HDD: 27GB Available Space
  • DX: DirectX 10
  • Other: Monitor Resolution 1920 x 1080 or below

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 8 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-540 3.06GHz or AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 or AMD Radeon HD 7790

These DMC 4 Special Edition minimum requirements are way, way down at the low end. The processor and graphics card requirements are comparatively ancient by today's standards, but the stalwart GeForce 8800 GTS should be enough to see you through. A 32-bit Windows 7 setup will also be enough to cover you for recommended, with Devil May Cry 4: SE sucking on just 2GB RAM when maxed out. 

The recommended requirements for DMC 4: SE are a comparatively massive step up, but we'd see this as a sign there's plenty of visual customisation options available to ensure it runs smoothly on a wide variety of gaming rigs. While the special edition looks slightly nicer than its 2008 predecessor, there's nothing here to prove too much of a worry to beefy graphics cards like the GTX 570 and the Radeon HD 7790. One caveat is that 60fps is vital in a game like Devil May Cry 4, where lightning fast reactions and timing are everything, so if you're getting stuttering or dropped frames then it might be time for an upgrade.

Interestingly Capcom tout 1920 x 1080 as the highest supported resolution, so users with higher resolution monitors may find themselves with a poor-quality image. This can usually be rectified with a bit of config file tweaking, or ran in Windowed if you've got a big enough screen.

I'm still hoping the reason they're releasing this game again is to get people pumped up for DMC 5. I really, really want classic Dante back.

Just guessing they would use Unreal Engine 4.Cause DMC 5 and most of the other Capcom games are born out of Unreal Engine

No brother they use Unreal Engine 3.
Because Unreal Engine 4 support only DX 11 and 12 rendering technique...
UE3 support DX 10 as well as DX 11 rendering technique and minimum requirement support DX 10.


That's what i think..

No. They used in-house MT Framework engine for DMC 4. The same one that RE 5&6 used. DMC 5 is the only one that used unreal 3.

i would be much happier if they make a new DMC than just improving an existing one, which is completed by many...

This is not Reboot....
This is re-make means they improve the earlier version with new combat system and adding new character and also improve graphic quality with performance.
