Capcom released today two brand new screenshot of the PS4 exclusive Deep Down, that you can see above and below. A further update on development was also promised for June, while the beta testing (in Japan) is currently scheduled for the summer.
Would be great if it shows up and they confirm a release for the 2nd half of 2014 worldwide. I played this at TGS last year. It was quite fun.
Is the game on rails? I want to have the choice to move my character how I see fit, or move to the next stage when I want. I don't like crimpson dragon because if these. How's the game play, can you talk about it ?
I still want this game. Already have 100 saved for it.
@redwin, okay, what could possibly have made you think this game was ever on rails? Have you not seen any video of it being played ever?
@Rev Cut the guy some slack. Not everyone frequents gaming sites all the time. He asked a legit question, maybe you could prove helpful instead of to helpful. @red No it's not on rails. You should check out some gameplay videos. Last I checked it was on a free to play model. Take that how ever you see fit.
Rally ? It's because of the videos that I ask the question . Remember dragons lair? That's on rails. It looked beautiful but not quite free to roam like Onimusha. I know the game is filled with micro transactions like if you want to upgrade your armor and not just for esthetic purposes but for actual upgrades. But it is still possible to finish the game with the original armor. Yes, I've seen the video but they have not mention the mechanic. Is it like resident evil ? Or is it like gears if war? Or is it like dragon's lair or is it like full spectrum soldier . That's my question! I already know the game looks amazing .
From what I see in the videos is like the game play is timed and not a button smasher like God of War but more like resident evil meets phantom dust. And some one here claimed to have played it, I'm asking for clarification. Btw, I meant to write dragon's layer, earlyer.
@ redwin, No it is not on rails. Its more linear than anything but the maps are procedurally generated. Meaning the maps are different every time you play it. And you can play with people as well. I dont quite understand what you mean by the game being "timed" but im sure you can play at your own pace...
@redwin Here are a couple of videos that should let you get an idea of the gameplay :D The first one is just someone dungeon crawling: https://www.youtube.com/wat... This one shows off some co-op gameplay, it's especially worth checking out at the 2 minute mark because it shows off an amazing time-stop spell that totally freezes everything including fire, your teammates and particle effects: https://www.youtube.com/wat... They've only really showed off the combat with the spear so far, but they've shown that there is also a sword and shield combo, they just haven't shown it off first-hand yet (at least to my knowledge). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for dual-wielding as well :p
Every time I think of F2P games I think of this vid http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
you could also play for a million hours building experience to get left arms, m16, and the jeep.lol
I've played lot of F2P, if the company is a good one, you get great experiences anyway. For example, Aion and Rift are both F2P, you have all the things you had when they were with monthly fees. You get updates and expansions too. Then, if you want extra things, you pay (but the extras are extras). Well, i don't know about Capcom tho...
Build a town hall. You have 3 options. 1 Wait 9 Hours 2 Buy 100 doughnuts for half your weekly income 3 Download the hacked torrent game, build the whole town in 30 minutes then realize it isn't actually a game its a robbing piece of garbage
E3 for what?? For a free to play game which will be available only in Japan??
Never said to be exclusive to Japan, they said they where unsure about western releases. And what does F2P have to do with anything? Here is the fact, game got allot of buzz, Capcom is on the ropes, Sony always wants more games and it's the first title to use Capcom's new engine. So yeah, E3.
You can made jap. acc on PS4, dude.
Hey if u ever watched any of the live gameplay u would hear the games dialog and text are in English
Who pissed in your pornflakes?
@pornflakes: and that's where you're incorrect. Capcom already trademarked the game both in USA and in Europe, and already has the .com domain. Everything points to the possibility of a localization coming down the line.
Registering trademarks and the domain is common practice these days, like acquiring patents then never actually doing anything with them. As long as you own them, no one else can. I think you may be right about it being localised but honetsly, the West won't see it until 2015 at the earliest. I've been shot down numerous times for saying this but every update pushes it back further making 2015 more realistic.
Is this one of your favorite upcoming games? you seem to have every detail about it. Not complain just wondering. (I'm also really hyped for it)
Ive a feeling that ''PS4 has no games'' soon will turn into ''PS4 has way too many games, my wallet is bleeding''.
The PS4 has a bunch of games. I have no idea what people are talking about. Certain games get neglected because I am so hooked on playing others. If you compare the two console's lists of available games one has more than the other and that is the PS4. So its funny to think, if the PS4 has no games... what does that say about the other?
@drekken, do you have both systems ?
I barely have time to play the games I own on PS4/PC. No need for any other systems. Does this invalidate my fact stating that the PS4 has more games than the Xbox One? Please don't make me break out a game list.
People usually say that because they want fresh experiences on new hardware. Right now the only next gen feeling games are killzone and infamous. Ps+ is also lacking on ps4. All I've gotten are indy games. People should really be a little more patient because next gen games will be coming to both systems. Right now the xbone looks like it has more games because it launched with newer games, even though thats not technically the case.
Indeed. E3 is just around the corner. Can't wait to see it all!
I think this game looks great but the randomised dungeons put me right off ... as does the FTP. I'm willing to be proven wrong.
The randomized dungeon adds to the replay value - IF they do it right - If you like rogue dungeon crawlers, I'm sure you'll enjoy this too.
Say that to Daylight with it's randomized rooms. Yeah I know Daylight is an indie game and Capcom is a AAA developer, it's a joke.
randomized dungeon means you will keep on seeing the same rooms all over again just in different order. Something we've seen in TES: Oblivion. Skyrim went for handcrafted dungeons and that's why every each of them felt unique.
@Rodney: "yes I know Daylight is indie and Capcom is an AAA Dev." - thanks for destroying your own point by your own logic. Now why can't everyone be this nice and trip over themselves for me. @Ballseye: Skyrim and Oblivion translated to caves leading to one boss fight. This is a bunch of rooms with randomized traps. FTL, ZHP and even azure Dreams proved that randomized dungeons CAN be fun.
not a fan of randomized dungeons and tiles
Looks good, hoping to see some more diverse environments than standard dungeon environment. Loved how the use of magic looked in the game.
Now there is the problem I have with this game and the reason 'randomly generated' is something I worry about. I don't think there ARE any other environments. Surely they would have shown some if they were ... and how would they prevent to left/right/straight up syndrome that dogs most randomised locations? I think it's going to end up being boring to be honest.
To be fair, Left 4 Dead and Binding of Isaac randomizes everything and those games are super replayable.
I don't think these screenshots do the game justice, even if they are straight from the developer.
Actually they show the rock texture very well. Both screenshots focus on the rocky surface that takes most of the screen, so I can only imagine that that's what they actually wanted to show. And at least they'll kill the silly rumor "they're not releasing pics in 1080p, so the game must be under that"
Yeah cause everyone gets hyped for games because of their rock textures... Lol! No I actually agree with you, just think its funny that's what the devs decide to show off these days.
Deelopers often like to show off their technical achievements, without knowing that people may want to see other things :D
They did not wake up and decide to show some rocks. They are showing the lighting and illumination effects on the armour and rocks. The game looks and will look fine 1080p or not.
@clown I do, I love my games with amazing textures, after playing modded Skyrim. Vanilla skyrim looks like garbage. On topic I really want to try this game out
Pfft, screens are never a good way to suggest what the final game's performance will be. People like to judge things way too soon.
Oh man, looking at this screenshots made me can't wait for Project Beast >.<
Same studio different engine.
- Project Beast = Sony x From Soft and there's still no info about the engine they use. But if looking at Project Beast screenshot that really similar to Demon's Souls, i assume they used modified Havok & Phyre engine - Deep Down = Sony x Capcom using Panta Rhei engine, new engine built up from ground So yeah, different studio and different engine.
Same studio? *double facepalm*
Seems like a step-up from the gameplay videos shown at TGS. Hope to see this at E3.
How many of us forgot about this title? I know I did. I hope Capcom has a release date and some juicy tidbits regarding a summer beta.
Yeah they've been silent for about 3 months.
I never did, just waiting with no update. But since Versus XIII was one of my most hyped games since announced, I am very good at waiting...
I've never forgotten about this, and No Man's Sky! Both are games I'm super ecstatic for!
Totally forgot about this game. Hope to see more of it at E3.
THIS is the RPG i'm waiting for next to Final Fantasy XV
What, no love for KHIII? ;P
Not necessarily no love so much as we know next to nothing about it at all. I'll get more psyched for KH3 as it gets closer but not everybody likes running around with Donald and Goofy.
Capcom ...bring a proper Dragons dogma 2 with single offline player and exclusive to Ps4 if you want to impress me
If you'r not impressed with thaat dragon fight in deep down,i dont know what you'll be impressed with.
Is that a face at the bottom of the cage in the second shot?
Deep down, you know you want it. ;)
Hmmm...drastic difference from the reveal trailer. Its like as if the devs are slowly brainwashing us by reducing the fidelity bit by bit and we look at the colours and general feel and say 'woah dat grafeeex' and act as if its the same as it was shown earlier. The environment detail looks closer to last gen and the armor texture now seems flat.
They call this game "deep downgrade" on the gaf. They picked up on it ages ago. Reminds me of a dark souls game, but multiplayer focused. For those reasons, Im interested. could be fun.
well atleast games arent 100% about the graphics right? :P i still think it looks awesome even if it is a bit of a downgrade. the graphics pull you in, but the gameplay keeps you playing.
RedSoakedSponge I agree. Plus it still looks good.
Well of course they are not. My topic was just about the graphics as the article talks about 1080p beautiful screenshots. I feel it as it was one of the main things that grabbed me at the reveal. If you're trying to justify your interest thats fine, but your reply was an unwarranted diversion to the main problem.
i think someone is coming across unnecessarily upset over a bit of a graphical downgrade. thats all. i was just making it clear that graphics arent everything. :P
Maybe you are right, but let's not forget that graphics are not the only important thing in a game, just look at The Witcher, good graphics but a mediocre game, Edge gave a 5/10.
Well Sony gamers need games like this since right now they only get remastered games and indi stuff.
Really hope you're not forgetting th
