PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down to be free-to-play

Capcom-developed fantasy role-playing game to expand Sony's push into the free-to-play market.


Capcom has announced at Tokyo Game Show 2013 that its upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down will be free-to-play.

The news comes from a tweet sent out by Sony's president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida. The Sony executive also mentioned that Capcom's fantasy role-playing game is scheduled to arrive as an open beta "near the launch of the PS4 in Japan."

This would mean that Deep Down's open beta will release sometime near February 2014, as Sony announced that its upcoming console will hit stores in Japan some three months after it becomes available in Europe and North America.

Deep Down will feature procedurally generated dungeons and runs on Capcom's new Panta Rhei engine. Earlier this month, producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed that despite the dark fantasy environments, the game will in fact take place in New York circa 2094.
