Deep Down, a free-to-play PS4 exclusive from Capcom, looks to combine elements of Dark Souls and Assassin’s Creed in its latest gameplay trailer, shown earlier at the Tokyo Game Show. Have a look!
What we know so far is that it’s a single-player dungeon crawler, but offers multi-player similar to that found in the Souls series. Capcom has already shown footage of up to four-player co-op, and more gameplay is shown in the footage above, but today’s trailer shows more of the game’s storytelling, thanks to an Assassin’s Creed Animus-style virtual reality gimmick. The trailer is in English as well to give us a better idea of what we’re in store for, although it didn’t really explain much.
Deep Down seems to be coming along nicely, but only time will tell if Capcom successfully executes a solid free-to-play experience. Coming from a company notorious for nickle and dime’ing consumers with DLC, that’s the part that scares me the most.
