Deep Down Is A PS4 Exclusive, But It May Not Be What You Think
We here at the eGamer online office have all been wondering about Deep Down, the insanely good looking RPG that was revealed during the PlayStation 4 Reveal Event all the way back in February. Since then we’ve heard next to nothing about the Capcom title, but yesterday at the SCE Japan Press Conference, Capcom took to the stage to debut some gameplay footage of the highly-anticipated next-gen title, and describe exactly what the title is about.
The first little detail, which might come as a complete surprise, is that Deep Down is not set in medieval times. In fact, it’s set far into the future, New York 2094 to be exact. Producer Yoshinori Ono explained that players will be able to interact with memories through artefacts and monuments, reliving them in a pseudo Assassin’s Creed style of way, which explains the often medieval looking settings that we’ve seen up to now. In fact, the gameplay itself looks a lot like Dark Souls, albeit with a bit more exploration and mobility.

Deep Down will be an online RPG, allowing the developers to randomly generate monster locations in procedurally generated maps and dungeons, which is a pretty cool feature when you think about it. The game will support up to 4-player online co-op, and seems to encourage gameplay with friends tagging along. Deep Down is also running on a brand new engine, although the footage doesn’t really give us a decent enough look at the game that blew us away visually a few months ago.
And on top of all that, it was finally confirmed that Deep Down will be a PS4 exclusive. Sorry Xbox One, no love this time around.
The game will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show later this month, so be sure to check back soon for even more details.
