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."
