Recommended Videos

While a lot of your time playing DMC 5 will be spent hacking and slashing demons with one of the game’s three protagonists, there’s plenty of exploration to do too. If you’re just wanting to run on ahead to the next story beat, though, here’s everything you need to know about how to view the next objective in Devil May Cry 5.

Multiple Paths in Devil May Cry 5

As you’re running around the streets of Red Grave City as one of the Devil Hunters, you’ll be faced by a lot of different paths. Some lead you to your next objective, but others take you off the beaten path to find items that’ll help you along the way.

There are alternate pathways in Devil May Cry 5 that will lead you to red orbs, which help you unlock new items and abilities, as well as other cool rewards. You get orbs just for defeating enemies and finishing levels, but exploring to get more will only help you get more powerful quickly.

How to View Next Objective

However, the multiple paths in Devil May Cry 5 can make navigating the world tricky at times, especially if you just want to continue the story uninterrupted. Thankfully, just one touch of a button can let you view the next objective and work out where to go.

All you need to do is hold down the left stick for a few seconds. The camera will then focus in on a specific place and a purple tint will show around it, which points you in the direction of your next objective. You will then be able to set off that way to take on more demons and continue the story.

That’s everything you need to know about how to view the next objective in Devil May Cry 5. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to check out our wiki guide or search for Twinfinite.
