Capcom's Deep Down is an Online Game, Only PS4 Mentioned as Platform; Gets Teaser Trailer

Yesterday Capcom held a presentation in Japan to introduce the upcoming online games in development at the company, and between other things a more information has been shared about Deep Down, including a teaser trailer.


The genre has been identified as "Reading" RPG, and a network connection is mentioned as required, so there's probably no offline mode.

Seems like it's PS4 exclusive

Abriael3470d ago

It's not been confirmed as an exclusive at the presentation. They just mentioned it'll be on PS4.

Possibly they're waiting to announce excliusivity (or lack of thereof) it at TGS.

Or maybe they're just waiting to see if Microsoft will moneybag them lol.

sobotz3470d ago

Or maybe it's exclusive in Japan. Xbox One got delayed there. maybe.

ShugaCane3470d ago

Right now it don't care about the exclusivity thing, I just want to know what kind of online it is. If it's like Demon's Souls, I'm super fine. If it's an always Online, MMORPG kind of game, I'll be highly disappointed.

sobotz3470d ago

It's COG, I'm pretty sure it's a MMORPG, the games had a graphics downgrade too. Really disappointed

Abriael3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

@ShugaCane: it could very probably be what the Japanese call an "Online RPG", like Phantasy Star Online 2, basically an heavily instanced MMORPG with a lobby location and instanced dungeons.

Japanese developers seem to love that genre.

ShugaCane3470d ago


Oh I love PSO. But I was still expecting something completely different for Deep Down. The first demo impressed me so much. And I hate it when my expectations are crushed down lol. Anyway, I'm still eager to see more. As you said, TGS will most probably bring light upon this mysterious project.

Abriael3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

@ShugaCane: I just found and translated some more info. It's identified as a "Raiding" RPG (whatever it means, capcom loves to make up genres), and a network connection is required.

MWH3470d ago

I thought it would be on par with Dark Souls, it will be disappointing if i's an online only game.

nveenio3470d ago

"Reading RPG"? So probably something a little like what Quantic Dream does? Minimal interaction? A choose-you-own-adventure book meets PS4?

Interesting idea...though I would be disappointed if we don't get to explore that beautiful engine at our own pace.

ABizzel13470d ago

I think Capcom's waiting to see if PS4 is really going to blow the competition away like the pre-orders and publicity make it seem. If PS4 is neck and neck with X1 it's going to be multiplat, if PS4 has a solid lead (around 3 - 5+ million by holiday 2014) then it's exclusive.

thechosenone3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

a bunch of videos showing off the tech from the Panta Rhei engine. looks f**king fantastic!

gaffyh3470d ago

Will probably be like Dark Souls/Demon's Souls online by the looks of it. However, if you pause the video at the right times, you can see in game footage, and it looks nowhere near as good as the demo they showed on stage at the PS4 reveal :(

fr0sty3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

The game is likely far too early in development for Capcom to be able to present it to companies that may be interested in exclusivity/making it go multiplatform. As of now, PS4 is the lead platform, and if Capcom can show Sony a good enough looking game as it progresses, Sony might just cut that check to make it exclusive. However, I doubt it's at a point where either Sony or MS would be willing to pay for it yet. So, time will tell. I damn sure wouldn't pay millions of dollars for a tech demo, I'd want to know exactly how the game will play.

DonFreezer3470d ago

Lol.Maybe they're just waiting to see if Sony will moneybag them to keep it exclusive.

EXVirtual3470d ago

Just like MS moneybagged KH3 and FFXV.

Rimeskeem3470d ago

By sony standards it will take ages for them to release info if its exclusive or not

ZBlacktt3470d ago

If that were the case then they would not be solely letting Sony take all the credit.

evilhasitsway3469d ago


No offline mode seems to be present as an internet connection is explicitly required, and “Online Only” is mentioned as well.

did you even read the article?

mikeslemonade3469d ago

I hope i'm wrong but this game is probably going to be a let down in terms of graphics. It's 95% chance going to be multiplatform and might even be multi-generational too. And also where my biggest doubt comes from is since when has capcom made a threshold on graphics. It hasn't been since RE4 when Capcom pushed the boundary in the visual fidelity.

They have made some amazing trailers but the game will probably not look like "that". Because if it did it will be the best looking games for next-gen when it comes out.

Keregan3469d ago

Abriael you shouldn't be allow to answer people at will. The father will be really disappointed

DragonKnight3469d ago

Anyone know what a "Reading RPG" is? If it means primarily text based with cutscenes, then I'm happy to pass this online only game up.

PlayStation is the land of RPG's.

black0o3470d ago


is it me or the 1st revel looked way better :S

torchic3470d ago

all PS4 is missing is an in-house RPG (preferably from Sony Santa Monica) and a Mistwalker game. Sakaguchi & Uematsu's return to PlayStation is only inevitable now with the poplularity and ease-of-development of PS4

DonFreezer3469d ago

We do we laugh? The ps3 had almost half the rpgs of the Xbox 360.

HammadTheBeast3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

Looks like Skyrim. I'm hoping there are more environments than just dark caves with torches...

Christopher3470d ago

Probably just timed exclusive if it is.

Cam9773470d ago

This is Sony, not Microsoft.
I'd expect full exclusivity.

FAT MAN GO BOOM3469d ago

I can't see Capcom making this an Exclusive. They are hurting for money and if it is an exclusive I think it will be for a time frame do to development...

PS4 I can't wait to get it but I think 3rd party developers are done with exclusive games...

There maybe one or two exceptions but it is going to be very very very rare...

Tatsuya 3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

Damn that's awesome! Hopefully they announce at TGS that DD is PS4 exclusive! Can't wait to see the final look of this game, reveal video was epic, new teaser is ok. Whatever it is, I always welcome more RPGs for my PS4.

Kyanu3470d ago

Looks really stunning!

FamilyGuy3470d ago

That's the most realistic looking in-game fire that I've ever seen... well, since sonys feb event where they first showed it.

DeadlyFire3470d ago

Could be timed. More so like Titanfall. Developers worry about putting MMO on Microsoft's platform. As Xbox has never been a very MMO friendly platform. I expect 2014 Deep Down to hit PS4 and 2015 or so we could see X1 version.

FamilyGuy3469d ago

It might come out at the end of next year, they said it'll be playable at TGS after all.

Eyeco3470d ago

It would be nice if it was ,Playstation needs more of these Action RPG/ Dungeon crawler games (remember Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance) we have far too many of these shooters, No offence too anyone but do we really need another exclusive shooter, a game like Deep Down would help in setting it apart from the competition.

I doubt this would be exclusive, i mean this is Capcom we're talking about, if not maybe Sony's First Party studios can develop there own, if not they should purchase small devs like From Software to make a game like this.

Sony needs a big exclusive AAA RPG, Fighting Game, JRPG just like in the old days, look at the best selling/ best quality games on the PS1, JRPG'S, Fighting Game, Stealth Action, Platformers, the diversity in that, now it's almost exclusively shooters, they need to go back to what defined the PS1 and PS2 to a lesser extent.

HiddenMission3470d ago

You think Capcom doesn't do console exclusives...the latest Dead Rising is XB1 exclusive so why wouldn't Capcom do PS4 exclusive?

dcj05243470d ago

To be fair there's only one exclusive shooter (Halo for XBOX, Killzone for PlayStation) and one multiplat shooter (Battlefield 4). MW2 was released in 2009 and cod hasn't changed since then so COD doesn't count. So thats 2 shooters launching this holiday, then 2 in 2014. Not much /:.

hellzsupernova3470d ago

Ps3 has, MAG, and resistance as well as killzone

starchild3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

PS4 will still have it even if it ends up multiplatform. I don't get your point.

Gamers care whether they can play a game on their system, while fanboys are the ones that care whether something is exclusive or not. It's mostly for the online e-peen wars.

"Capcom's Deep Down is an Online Game"

Automatically lost all interest in the game. MMO games, no thanks.

KrisButtar3470d ago

I've lost a lot of interest in the release of upcoming PS4/XB1 because its all about Online gaming, MMO style. Just the announced games requiring to be Online before they even release, I find shocking. I want my single player games. PC gaming is looking better and better.

bjmartynhak3469d ago


Yes, Destiny, The Division, Driveclub and now Deep Down...

I'm not liking this concept "open-world-always connected-all your friends are gamers-and play the same games as you"

An then the GOTY contenders are Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us, single-player and linear. Both perfect!

ps3_pwns3470d ago

yep its ps4 exclusive its not coming to the xbox one.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF3470d ago

Oh no! An always online game! You have to be online just to play! Oh the horror!

XboxFun3470d ago

I expect full rage from the folks here at N4G.

I mean no one wants to always be online when they play games or so I have been told....

Imalwaysright3470d ago

It is just 1 game. Its not as if it was PS4 whole library.

Outside_ofthe_Box3470d ago

Why are you guys acting like there has never been an online only game before?

pixelsword3470d ago

@ miDnIghtEr20C_SfF:

"An always online game"

is different from

"An always online console."

whoyouwit043470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

Yea, but it's in always on PS4 exclusive. they can have that crap regardless of graphics. With that said, the fact that it's always online almost guarantees this will come to xbox one, and will be the superior version by using the xbox one's cloud

T23470d ago

Please tell me you forgot the /s you know how ridiculous u sound ...

Teh cloudzzzz!

CrimsonStar3470d ago

Hmmm this could be a game changer , its just odd that Sony hasn't claimed it .

colonel1793470d ago

Why when MS say a game is exclusive everybody calls it an exclusive, even when it's not (because is on PC, timed, etc), but when Sony announces an exclusive everyone is skeptical and saying they need confirmation from everyone and his mother to actually consider it an exclusive.

opinska3469d ago

Keep crying!! Fan girl

whoyouwit043469d ago

One this is not a sony game, and two this is a 3rd party game that has given no conformation this is exclusive. Like I said, always online being required just make a xbox one version almost guaranteed.

joefrost003470d ago

Its either a ps4 exclusive and they are.waiting to announce at a show or its not and they are still finalizing things out MS
MS got DR3 I can see.them wanting to even things out
Have to wait and see stop being wowed by tech demos a while back

My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante3469d ago

It's Capcom...Of course it's not going to be a PS4 exclusive.

first1NFANTRY3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

i hope Sony publish this as an exclusive. the ps consumer is more likely to purchase this than the fps M$ crowd. Hopefully they shed more light at gamescon.

Fishy Fingers3470d ago

Aren't Killzone, BF4 and COD: Ghost currently the most preordered PS4 games?

Let's move away from the FPS is only popular on the Xbox stigma shall we. Clearly it's the most popular genre on every platform.

Utalkin2me3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )


Both are going to be have top FPS, but i think PS3 is a little more varied in the top 10. Thats why you do not see MW3 or Black Ops 2 in the top 10 of Ps3 games.

MajorLazer3470d ago

Except CoD is the highest selling game on PS3 so your comment makes no sense. I guess fanboyism does lead to loss of sight, delusions and pure ignorance

HammadTheBeast3470d ago

Actually, Gran Turismo 5 is, last I checked.

Minato-Namikaze3470d ago

Still You'll find other genre's near the top of PS3's list. Xbox is just more FPS's.

MajorLazer3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

GT5 isn't the highest selling PS3 game. It is the highest selling PS3 exclusive. Here is the list of the top 10 selling games on the PS3, in order:

1. CoD: MW3
2. CoD: BO
3. CoD: BO II
4. GT5
5. CoD: MW 2
7. FIFA 13
8. Battlefield 3
9. FIFA 12
10. CoD 4

I would hardly call that varied, considering the top 10 consists of six FPS, two football games (the most popular sport in gaming and on earth), the most popular sandbox of all time and the most popular racing game of all time

HiddenMission3470d ago (Edited 3470d ago )

Dude you act like 5 of the titles are different they are CoD games of course they are going to be in the top 10. Take out CoD games period and then resort the list and see how different it looks...

Oh yeah do that for both consoles.

Ok so I did that for you.

1.Kinect Adventures!
2.Halo 3
3.Grand Theft Auto IV
4.Halo: Reach
5.Halo 4
6.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
7.Battlefield 3
8.Gears of War 2
9.Halo 3: ODST
10.Gears of War

1.Gran Turismo 5
2.Grand Theft Auto IV
3.FIFA Soccer 13
4.Battlefield 3
5.FIFA Soccer 12
6.Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
7.Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
8.Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
9.Red Dead Redemption
10.Assassin's Creed II

Yeah 5 of the top 10 games for the 360 are still FPS's...yet only 1 on the PS3 is a FPS. More TPS, Sports and Open world game love on the PS3 so more variety at the top 10 on the PS3.
