There are 20 main story missions in Devil May Cry 5, or 21 when counting the Prologue mission. The Prologue mission is fairly short, but it does feature some battles against demons, including a boss fight against the ultra-powerful demon Urizen, who serves as the game's main antagonist.
When players manage to complete the main story in Devil May Cry 5, it's far from the end of the experience. Players will need to amass a ton of red orbs if they hope to purchase all of the upgrades and skills for the three playable characters, plus there's plenty of hidden items to find in the levels as well.
Additionally, Devil May Cry 5 players can unlock 12 secret missions. These secret missions aren't nearly as long as the regular missions in the game, but they do provide some extra challenges for players to complete. With the secret missions added, it will likely take players around 15 hours to beat the game.
Devil May Cry 5 will add even more for players to do in the future. We know that the Bloody Palace is coming as free DLC, and Capcom has suggested that more playable characters could be added. Whether these characters will be regulated to the Bloody Palace or be available in the main story remains to be seen, however.
Overall, Devil May Cry 5 gives fans of the franchise plenty to do, and is about as long as any other game in the series, if not a little bit longer.
Devil May Cry 5 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
