You’re used to see screenshots of the PS4 exclusive Deep Down showing dragons, knights and moldy dungeons, but today you get to see something entirely different in the form of... a modern apartment.
I can't wait to play this. I'm hyped for this game.
Somehow, this game is hated by alot of the xbots who think ryse is better than Deep Down.
If Ryse isn't winning in graphics they'll find illogical reasons to hate on it I'm sure.
That is pretty hilarious to think of people comparing a full retail game to a free-to-play game. By my own logic, I would assume Ryse would dominate all categories of comparison, to think that there are some grey areas and that Deep Down might even be better in some areas is amusing to me and makes me more confident in my decision to get only one console (PS4) for next-gen instead of owning both like I do now.
Yeah. With Deep Down being Free-to-Play, it gets a few passes, though the development team doesn't seem to be needing them at this point. The only thing that worries me right now is the tight corridors and strange javelin mechanics.
@inveni0 yeah I have the same concerns. With screenshots of the modern world like this, it is clear the game is more than just walking dungeon to dungeon so I would assume there are some non-claustrophobic maps and areas and I would reckon they will improve the game mechanics further. Either way, I am definitely intrigued by this title and I hope it turns out well.
I have hated on the game a little, but it has nothing to do with Ryse. I just HATE the whole Free-to-Play model of gaming. I was excited about this game until they announced that. Now I won't know for sure until I get to try it myself, but I have yet to encounter a F2P game that wasn't designed poorly, in that it almost forces you to buy stuff to have a chance. (Or at least to have a chance without grinding for HUNDREDS of hours.) I would much rather buy a game for 60 dollars and have it designed to be played without buying any add-ons, than get the game for "free" but then have to nickel and dime my way to victory. It just annoys me. So that's my 2 cents. I think the game looks fantastic, I WANT to like it, but I hate F2P so much that I just can't imagine it's going to be good.
This game looks great.
Wanna know why its hated, even though I will be purchasing a PS4 yes a PS4 so dont call me an XBOT simply because I dislike a game coming to this console and hating it is not hating PS4 because its not even developed by SONY. Its freemium ok and the only word you hear there is "free" but I hear alot more. Its capcom who are greedy pigs, and almost all (i said almost) freemium games are ridicolous rip offs, how many times do you see A kid spend $1,000 dollars on one game on an mobile device and their parents get upset. To buy everything in almost all freemium games will cost you hundreds of dollars. And usually is the case where the amount of money hitting the screen determines your ingame skill. Imagine playing and you approach and EPIC ASS CASTLE and as you get closer to the entrance a message pops in your face "Would you like to pay $3.99 to continue?" Im not saying Rhyse is better but in this game they will constantly ask for your wallet (and dont say look look he pretends to know the future, this is what ends up effecting 99% of freemium games) The graphics are nice but the fundamental business practice capcom will most likely be applying will be questionable to many including my self. Simply because you hate a specific game on a console doesnt meaning "Your trolling the console" or your an "xbot". Then you can call all the people hating on Rhyse (alot of them byt he way) PS4 fanboys, when they actually have viable reasons.
Two different games, no need for the hate. The X1 got DR3, PS4 got Deep Down. Move on haters.
@redknight80 Your logic fails hard and here's why DCUO is free to play and is doing smash numbers and constantly growing in accounts yet other MMO's are losing accounts. Don't write free to play off as being inferior because I've played many a AAA title that should have been free to play and many a free to play that should have charged full price. Do you see what I'm saying.
@Hidden Mission, sorry for not making it clear but I don't feel they are automatically inferior but just that I have the mindset in my head that a full retail game should be leaps and bounds above a F2P game in terms of graphics and other aspects. I don't really play many F2P games but will surely be doing so with the PS4 and games like this. It is really more of a bias that I feel a retail game "should" be better since I am investing so much more into it. I am just now starting to see how F2P games can indeed be quality and, for example, I am also so excited for Warthunder so as I start playing more F2P games, I am sure my bias will no longer be :)
Crysis 2 from 2010 looks better than deep down http://i.imgur.com/LU5XnZd....
It's like Playstation Home with dragons and better graphics.
It's actually more like Assassin's Creed + Soul Sacrifice + Dark Souls. The "reality" in the game takes place in a modern era, and you "relive" past experiences via a currently unknown mechanic (something to do with technology). But like Soul Sacrifice, your character retains the loot + levels they acquire while past-diving. In any event, it looks amazing. One of my most anticipated next-gen titles. I love MMORPGs, but their mechanics and systems always degrade into a tedious endgame, so a MP/ endless dungeon adventure - with co-op - is exactly what I'm after.
Would it cover different eras in the same game? That's pretty awesome in that case, it reminds me the scene from predator where it had several "trophies" from beating heroes/warriors from different historical eras Hope CAPCOM support this game and delivers a great online
The theme of this game always makes me think of .hack. Which is awesome!
Ever heard of Sword Art Online? It's an anime that relatively new but follows a similar theme.
I have heard of it but never watched, will check it out, thanks!
Sword art online is a great anime, I sure hope they make a third season arc.
I can't wait to get Deep Down inside this game!
That sounded so wrong! Me and my dirty mind LOL.
I can't wait to go... Deep Down!
in glasgow we call it deep doon! gonna get this game, looks great.
LOL that made me laugh, I really love Scottish accent. its so difficult to imitate unlike british accent.
mmmhh deep down, seriously this game looks cool.
What type of game is this? i saw dragons and all kind of weird shit a couple of days ago, now i see something else that doesn't make sense....e What time is this game set at?
It's set in 2094 The story is basically that some people have this gift where they can touch artifacts and relive/visit the past where something relevant happened to the artifact. Something like they hear they voices of the past through the object. There's a machine that lets those gifted people really go to those past events and the game is all about revisiting what really happened. You collect more artifacts along the way and those artifacts let you visit other past events and different locations and (I assume) time periods. Genre wise it's an online, action-based rpg. It's also a Free2Play game. Content pricing/methods and what comes free initially hasn't been mentioned yet.
Thank you =)! makes more sense now i guess. bubble added.
Oh that is cool
Only thing that scares me is that Capcom, in recent years atleast, hasn't been known to be one of the most decent and goodhearted publishers around. So, this game being f2p definitely has me suspicious of how they'll go about monetization, and I hope they don't try to hook us in with giving us the open beta from early on, with tons of free content, then as we get addicted start charging for outrageous stuff that should be free. I really hope they can turn over a new leaf this next gen, because I'm a huge fan of many of their IPs, like SF, which me and my friends grew up on and ran shit in the arcades, but I can't agree with most of their tactics this gen with ridiculous $$$ DLC that should have been free, especially on-disc day one $$ DLC. What they did to MvC players with MvC3 then UMvC3 coming out less than 9 months later as a full disc based game, was horrible. So, I'm gonna download Deep Down, but I'm gonna stay cautious for awhile, because I still feel Capcom is not fully trustworthy atm.
I think they did say somewhere that with the situation they're in, they'll be relying on a "DLC model" for their games now. So we'll have to wait and see if they abuse the system or do it justice :/ EDIT: http://www.siliconera.com/2...
If th game it self is free, then I can't complain to much about paying for a bit of DLC.
As ong as you don't pay over what you would have had you paid for the game like normal.
Plus you only buy what you want.
If down the track they release a major mission DLC and you really like the game, then yeah, why not.
And my mates in Australia want to get Deep Down Unda with this game! Look guys I made a funny, Crocodile Dundee style!
I'm loving what is being seen, with some games your seeing week by week constant visual upgrades, but with others coming close to launch your getting visual downgrades. Loving the news from kz sf, drive club, deep down, etcccc
That apartment sure looks comfy ^^
Isn't it one of these F2P POS? I really hope not, & if so, I hope Capcom change it to an outright buy game....I hate this F2P crap....There ain't a game I've played on console yet with F2P that is worth shelling out anything for....There all either 2nd rate, or just rehashes like DOA & Tekken that you can buy the previous version for, for a fraction of what it would cost to buy all characters in these non-improved F2P turds... I am a PS4 owner (pre-ordered day one), & I will be not bothering with the Driveclub F2P crap, as I will just buy the full game on day 1, along with KZ,Watchdogs, Knack, & maybe BF4.....PS+ will offer me Housemarques new game, & that is true free to play, not quarter, or 1/100th of a game.
The F2P model for this game concerns me as well, but nothing concerns me more than the fact Capcom is running this show. There recent track history is not exactly stellar, and I'm really hoping this game does not turn out to be a huge disappointment.
Derp Down looks strangely awesome... But should be only a dungeon crawler... we really won´t care much the futuristic part... if they don´t include velociraptors and eventual ghosts or paranormal activities around the apartment... and more dinosaurs.
Difference between this and Ryse... this game will only get better looking before launch. Ryse, like many other Xb1 exclusives, is getting progressively worse as they move from high end pc development to actual xb1 hardware.
That goes for anything next gen on consoles. Battlefield 4 on PC isn't going to look like what they have shown, unless you spend several thousand on the PC.
I know that Deep Down, I really want this game.
I don't think the game was ever certified as "exclusive", the developers are just working on the PS4 for right now. The same would go for Titanfall on Xbox One, the developers are just working on the Xbox version right now. Not that either of these games look good. That being said, Deep Down looks to be just a small step above a tech demo.
nop they say it's exclusive in e3 gamescome and TGS
Maybe you play video games in this game? And Deep Down is the game within the game..
Looks awesome. I hope that we have to search through 2094 New York for artifacts to go back in time. I also hope, with DLC, that they take us back to different periods in history. The assassination of Abraham Lincoln, man's first walk on the moon, Jack the Ripper in England. This games premise opens up a ton of opportunities for continuous DLC that would take us back to different periods in history and just not the medieval dungeons that weve seen so far. I just hope they take advantage of it's wide-open historical nature.
deep down is free to play!!!! cant wait
i know im going to get flamed but o well i thought this was going to be a good dungeon crawling rpg but now i just don't now i have never been a fan of assassins creed i hated the futuristic parts i would get immersed in too being an assassin and then bang your in some stupid chair in the future re leaving some ones memories if they would re release it whit no futuristic parts i would probably enjoy it more and every f2p game i have ever played is interesting but then you hit that wall were you either grind for hours to get what you need or pay and get it in a few seconds id rather pay $60 and not have to worry about micro transactions
Free to Play baby!
Murky 720p screen shots? What is this?
F2P is the best economical model for this kind of co-op dungeon crawler.Since it is mainly co-op the P2W fear is irrelevant here, at least from what we saw till now. The grief toward Capcom while fully understood is still little too much. My most wanted game next gen even if i remain cautious.
If there is any kind of PvP P2w could become a problem then, otherwise f2p doesn't seem that bad.
Exactly, it is a win win solution here :1- you like the game and spend some money on it - it's free, so paying as much as 70$/year is fair, plus you extend the game life span far beyond a simple retail game. 2- it is not you genre so go ahead try and then strike del key :) P2W is another matter, and i'm against it no matter what.But it is not as common as it sounds to be, just my experience though.
