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.

Seriously free to play? are you on drugs capcom? where is Dragon's Dogma 2?

Avatar image for FoleyX90

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.

Bloodborne hands down

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

So, accodring to this trailer Deep Down isn't just about dull spear poking

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

Avatar image for hermitkiller

<< LINK REMOVED >> My thoughts exactly.

Capcom nearly always want to spread their games multi-platform.

Avatar image for fgjnfgh

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

Avatar image for BFKZ

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.

Avatar image for constantterror

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Don't go there now, enjoy what u got , and let others enjoy what they got. just ignore people like vladric which is like 90% of this site.

Avatar image for hardangelfan

Avatar image for ZEeduardo94

@hardangelfan @theprismhead yeah, whatever I'm an atheist anyway

Avatar image for jZangetsu21

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 much of my soul do they want for this "Free" game....

Avatar image for battlefront1943

<< LINK REMOVED >> CAPCOM said there will be thousands of items that can be obtained.

Avatar image for jZangetsu21

Avatar image for robertle519

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

Avatar image for battlefront1943

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

F2P - Fool to play. No thanks.

Avatar image for madara86

this game is looking worse eveytime instead of better.. story looking terrible!

Avatar image for ktseymour

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.
