PS4-Exclusive Deep Down Gets Stunning New Trailer, As Beta Delayed to 2015

Capcom releases lovely gameplay trailer for upcoming PlayStation 4 game; beta pushed to next year, and still no word on Western release.

Capcom today released a stunning new gameplay trailer for its upcoming free-to-play PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down, showing off gorgeous environments, fierce dragons, and the game's four-player mode. That's the good news. The not-so-great news is that the publisher also confirmed that the game's beta has been delayed 2015, according to a translation of the video you see above by Siliconera.

Deep Down producer Kazunori Sugiura said the delay was necessary to deliver a good experience for players. He also apologized to players who have been left waiting for the beta, which was originally expected to launch this summer before being delayed multiple times. The Deep Down beta has been announced only for Japan so far.

Powered by Capcom's new Panta Rhei engine, Deep Down features dungeons that exist in a shared world, similar to that of Demon's Souls or Dark Souls. No release date for the game has been announced. Regarding the game's free-to-play business model, and the microtransactions that will be available, producer Yoshinori Ono said the game will offer a "large variety of content at reasonable prices."

This game looks great. They should just ditch the free play model and make it a normal release. The quality a retail release just stomps on most free to play games.

I don't understand the point of this game.  Normally in games like this collecting loot and accessing new areas is the main reason to keep playing.  This being a f2p game, I imagine we'll have to pay to gain access to the majority of the loot and levels, which completely defeats the purpose of playing a game like this.

I had completely forgotten this existed. And now that I remember, I  would be happy too forget again.

@putaspongeon Which part of the average looking randomly generated, co-op dungeon crawler with sub-par combat has you excited?

The Playstation 4's Ryse. Graphics are lovely, but I think the game will be a huge steaming pile of cack to play. Would love to be wrong, of course.

Good point. Plus Ryse is just a botched Kinect title that Microsoft cancelled it being a Kinect title at the last second when they realized they like 2 games for the xbox one launch.

Looks good, now hurry up and use that Panta Rhei engine to make Dragon's Dogma 2.

The character control seems a little clunky, like dragons dogma.

@wexorian and waits and waits and waits


Seriously, most of the games announced with the PS4 nearly 2 years ago have yet to come out and still won't come out until 2015.

@wexorian The reason they're not sure if it is coming west is because they know hardly anyone cares about this game.

I wonder if this game will stay exclusive if it makes its way over to the west?  Its 3rd party so unless Sony made a "Titanfall" or "TR" deal with Capcom then if it goes west it will probably go multiplat

@skiggy34 I assume it is only on PS4 because no one in Japan owns an Xbox?

This looks really cool. I love the design of the chest monster thing. And the lighting is ridiculous. Not a dungeon crawler guy, and the souls games never got me, this might finally turn me to the dark side

The game seems amazing....until you get to the modern home living areas, then I was absolutely lost. It'd be nice if they at least put subtitles in the trailer.

AHahahahha... All those new gamers saying they stole the Mimics from Dark Souls... Ooohhh life...

Can't wait to see future PC Games using that Panta Rhei engine hopefully with 4K textures, but this game looks good it's just too bad about the kind of game that it's going to be.

U guys gotta make dragons dogma 2, cuz that game is boss. I put it away for two years cuz i was busy with other stuff, im playing it now until november comes around. It was so enjoyable, and for f2p this looks good, but dragons dogma 2 must happen.

Indeed dragons dogma is one of my top as well

The graphics are nice but it still looks kind of dull. Plus it being a F2P game and is made by Capcom who is well known for price gouging throws up a lot of red flags.

Looks like it has potential. But didn't see anything that stood out as a must get.

Game is going to be EPIC!! Like Dark Souls meets Final Fantasy! but with better graphics and systems!

Randomized dungeons usually suck, this is my main concern about this game.

Doesn't look all that interesting.....

why not just make Dragon's Dogma 2? I mean  if they treated Street Fighter like this we'd have SF 5 and 6 as well as a real Darkstalkers sequel by now instead of reviisions that morons buy like hot cakes......

they invented a new IP why? and it looks worse than Dragon's Dogma.....

the controls look clunky

Not impressed. The treasure chest monsters are a direct rip-off from the Mimics in DS2, and the characters are so hunched over they look like they should be using walkers. And what's with the home tour at the end of the presentation?

@dmdavenport Between this, Bloodborne and Lords of the Fallen this new gen is already crowded with Dark Soul like games...

I'm glad something good is being copied for a change. I'm tired of playing the same fps made by different devs.
