PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Will Be a Free-To-Play Title

Deep Down

[adsense250itp]Deep Down, the PlayStation 4 exclusive, was revealed to be a free-to-play game by Capcom at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Capcom has been demoing Deep Down for gamers and press at TGS, giving many their first hands-on time with the game. Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios also revealed via Twitter that an open beta is being planned near the launch of the PS4 in Japan. Since the PS4 will release on Feb. 22 in Japan, it’s safe to assume that Deep Down’s open beta will start sometime in February or shortly after.

Sony nor Capcom said if the beta would be exclusive to Japan or would be released in other territories as well. One of the reasons Sony decided to wait until next year to release the PS4 in Japan was so more games would be available to appeal to Japanese audiences. This beta of Deep Down definitely aligns with those plans.

Deep Down is a dungeon-crawler with a futuristic twist. Taking place in 2094 in New York, the player character is able to touch various artifacts and relics and relive the memories contained within them. While little else of the story has been confirmed, it’s possible players will be able to visit more than just the medieval, knights and dragons setting seen so far. Deep Down’s maps are also procedurallly generated where things like monsters, traps and treasures will all be random. The game will also include co-op with up to four players. Gameplay looks very much akin to Dark Souls but the futuristic touches will no doubt help differentiate the game.

When Sony first unveiled the PS4 earlier this year, Capcom showed off Deep Down for the first time as a demonstration of the company’s new Panta Rhei engine. It was definitely one of the more visually stunning moments during the conference and current footage for Deep Down is certainly living up to that early promise.
