Capcom's PS4-Exclusive Deep Down Gets a New Trailer

Get a look at the beautiful, Dark Souls-esque game in motion.

A new trailer for Capcom's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Deep Down, was on display this week at E3, but you now have the opportunity to see it (in all its Dark Souls-y glory) for yourself.

The minute-long trailer provides several glimpses of gameplay, offering a look at a number of different enemies and environments that players will encounter. The game continues to bear a strong resemblance to From Software's Demon Souls and Dark Souls games, but differs from those in at least one key way: It will be a free-to-play game.

We previously learned that Deep Down will put players in a shared world where they can come upon the corpses of other players, which they can then loot. Capcom's Yoshinori Ono claims the microtransactions that support the game will be reasonably priced, and he has also said, "To ensure people playing the game don't lose interest, we will keep working to deliver stable long-term services." New screenshots were released last month just as we learned that the game's beta, originally scheduled to kick off earlier this year, had been delayed until this summer.

The release of this E3 trailer didn't bring any word with it about the beta--and, in fact, Capcom still isn't providing any indication as to when the final game will be released. "The development team continues to work hard engaging in intense trial and error methodology in order to find the best way to utilize PS4's potential when it comes to online games," said Ono on the PlayStation Blog. "As such, I'm afraid I can't yet provide details on when the game will be released. I hope we can count on your patience and understanding as we forge ahead. Please accept my heartfelt apology for making you wait longer."

Are you still looking forward to Deep Down, or is it Bloodborne that you're now more excited for? Let us know in the comments below.

 Why is everybody complaining that this looks like a Dark Souls clone? IMO the world needs more dark souls-esque games. Personally, I'm tired of "Press X to not die" games.

It's transformed way too much from the PS4 reveal trailer.............. and doesn't look nearly as good.

I take care never to underestimate Capcom. Dragon's Dogma seemed to me out of nowhere. It was excellent, and I think they really have momentum in this space and something unique to offer.  From the looks of this demo, I suspect they think so too.

Finding it very hard to pick out a tone here, what with the massive clash of combat, artistic design, music, and the title font.

If the microtransactions are cosmetic (which they won't be) sign me up. Otherwise. get to F

I thought Capcom stopped believing in exclusivity

I am seeing tons of great exclusive games on PS4 at an early stage. Probably, PS4 is going to be the best Sony's console ever made

With microtransactions, this game will require 1000 hours to get a weapon or buy that same weapon for only 9.99$...Basically another pay-to-win game, although I didnt see anything regarding to PvP, but hey iam 100% sure it will be better than that piece of garbage warface, which i very much regret downloading.

Well... ehh....  Don't take me wrong, it does look better then Dark Souls (at least in the trailer, and we all know how majority of games presented at E3 are just amped up segments of the actual product), but i think Sony, with that wonder box called PS4 can do much better.

@vladric lol go look at micro$hit what can they do besides the normal 30 DLC exclusive crap cause they can't make a real good game like Sony can.

The microtransactions in this game will have you pay with your soul instead of money :)

If it's like Warframe, where a lot of things can be obtained, I'll go for it.


Looks fun but it is Capcom after all.....how much of my soul do they want for this "Free" game....

@jZangetsu21 I agree I really do lookin forward to it but knowing how Capcom have a history of cash milking.. yeah!

Capcom, in concentrating on trying to jump to big game (like COD and GTA) forgot how to be fun. Capcom was always among the best of gaming publishers with some fantastic franchises: Mega Man, Resident Evil, Vampire, Street Fighter, Dino Crisis, Onimusha, Monster Hunter and many others. What happened to Capcom's magic? It is next gen time! No next gen Mega Man, Resident Evil, Onimusha, Devil May Cry, Dino Crisis, Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Final Fight, VS. game or anything at the E3 this year. Lost Planet was "lost" after the first game. Remember Me is already forgotten. They went in the wrong direction with DMC. Monster Hunter alone will not save Capcom. A next gen Resident Evil, Dino Crisis (right in time for Jurassic World), Onimusha, Mega Man, Street Fighter and Darkstalkers would have restored faith. Or how about Darkstalkers vs. Street Fighter? Why not? Or an all new next gen sick Final Fight game. Many people could care less about Deep Down. As much as I love Capcom , they are in serious trouble.

@snkcapcom411 I loved DMC...  and think many of teh biggest bashers never played the game.  They're too busy bashing the newest CASTLEVANIA game.  And the terrible thing is Western gamers don't buy MONSTER HUNTER games.  I wish they did.  Onimusha?  Great franchise, but the numbers never made a a great success.

I love CAPCOM...  I also love SEGA...  but the West demands games but rarely supports what they release.

These F2P games are a pathetic attempt to get into the Chinese market. Keep telling yourselves that China is an emerging game market ; the so called middle class in china is barley paid enough to live let alone have tons of extra income on games.

Keep your F2P sh*t in "so called" emerging markets, or how about actually meeting the consumer half way on the price.

Somebody has no idea about f2p games at all. You should really refrain from commenting on this subject in the future.

Not likely, barely anything like that exists anymore.

F2P so no I am not interested. Cash cow! They're not milking me.
If it's like warframe however, maybe.

Capcom should make DD2 and a new DMC, not some F2P crap, especially when there'll Bloodborne.

I'm not sure how you'd do a game like this as a F2P without it being Pay to Win.

rasterror

Simple. You loss unless you spend 500 hours grinding it out for a cardboard sword.

rasterror

@WolfGrey Well after playing Warframe I would say F2P really sucks. Then when my friend told me he spent $80 just on two characters alone I ever so swiftly deleted the game. Yeah, it sucks.

dawnraxzor

@rasterror @WolfGrey Warframe is a bad example of F2P my friend , that game is an endless beta with an outdated market. even the first sword you get , that is a POS ,cost 10$ on the market.

Ignorance is bliss. This hate of f2p is just plain foolish.

@rasterror @WolfGrey 

Thats funny because Warframe has a great model.

I have plenty of Warframes, tons of weapons, almost 1000 mods, and no issues at all. The most i spend is on more slots and that is cheap as hell.


Also one game is never a good way to make a decision about an entire group. That is ignorant.

@dawnraxzor 

Your paying for convenience. Within a few minutes you could have easily gotten that blueprint off the normal market in credits instead, crafted it, and not paid a cent.


You want to be lazy....expect to pay for it.

@WolfGrey @dawnraxzor Warframe is far from a great model, i got the 30$ platinum pack at 50% off (15$) and still i felt ripped off. i only got 1 Warframe (ash), 1 accessory and a color pack.oh and i have been playing Warframe since the closed beta started. and the market hasn't change one bit.
