Hands-on gameplay capture from DmC: Devil May Cry

Exclusive footage from a near-complete version.

Our new YouTube man Ian Higton (check out his Games of 2012 piece on Minecraft 360 if you missed his introduction) has been busy since he got back from his Christmas hols. Busy slaying demons.

Yep, Ian's been playing a near-complete version of DmC: Devil May Cry, which is due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 15th January. You can check out several of his videos over on the Eurogamer YouTube channel and we will have more over the next couple of weeks, including a live stream. Here are some highlights, starting with the preview he put together before we broke up for the holidays:

Ian's also put together some videos showing specific missions. Here's one of Mission 8, where Dante gets stuck in a Limbo-world version of a subway system, complete with demonic trains for juggling enemies into.

And here's Mission 9, where Dante heads into a demonic upside-down representation of DmC's Raptor TV network building and meets some friends and new enemies on the way.

All of the above is very light on spoilers of any sort, but obviously avoid watching if you're super-sensitive to that sort of thing. Or if you're sensitive to watching someone fall repeatedly into an abyss, because that happens a lot too. Look out for more DmC stuff including our review in the next couple of weeks.
