Epic Looking PS4 Exclusive “Deep Down” Will Be Free-2-Play & Have A Beta
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Deep Down has already been confirmed as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, but Capcom have just pulled another trick out of their bag by announcing that the premium quality dungeon crawler will now be a free-2-play title, although unfortunately that is the only detail they’ve given so far on the payment structure for the title.
The game is looking super cool so far, gameplay videos and more have been leaking online from the Tokyo Game Show and things are looking very promising indeed, mixing the tense exploration of classic Capcom titles such as Dino Crisis with the brutally intricate combat of something like Dark Souls.
The game randomly generates dungeons for you to work through and it really can be luck of the draw on how hard the game is each time you pick an area to play, much like the world creating system used for FTL: Faster Than Light.
Hopefully the game will be a proper free-2-play title that can be “completed” for nothing, but with the temptation of extra content, DLC or new weapons for those willing to spend a little extra, compared to the less favourable options that allow a little free content, then ask for money, or systems that require you to spend on lots of micro transactions to be competitive.
A lot of questions will be answered prior to release though as the Capcom do plan to hold a Beta close to the Japanese launch of the PlayStation 4, so it will only be a few months until we know for sure.
Thank you BossDungeon for providing us with this information.
