Capcom recently took to the stage at this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2013 to showcase their upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive RPG Deep Down. During the show Sony’s president of worldwide studios Shuei Yoshida sent out a tweet in which he announced Deep Down would be Free-to-Play. He then went on to confirm Deep Down would enter open beta “near the launch of the PS4 in Japan”.

The Playstation 4 is actually launching this coming November 15th in North America first, with Japan’s release date set for February 22nd. This means players can expect to participate in the open beta sometime in or around February of next year.

Deep Down will feature procedurally generated dungeons and has been shown to allow at least 4 players to participate together. You can see a small bit of that in action in the video below (skip to 7:01 for 4-way dragon fight).

    looks Awesome.

    This just looks like Demon’s Souls combined with Monster Hunter. Probably an 80% single player experience with optional 4 player online co-op. Doesn’t look very interesting at all if you view it from a PC MMORPG standpoint instead of just some generic console game with online play.

      Even if it is mostly single player who cares? The game is free and it looks like fun so what more can you ask for from a free game?

    From just looking at it, it feels like the atmosphere from the Dark souls series which is great when combined with the combat that I just saw ^_^ being able to deflect attacks by attacking and what not isnt something you see often. Even if the story isnt that great the combat and the visuals themselves will make this a great game. This game probably wont for PC which sucks T_T

        Yeah guys! Let’s all pay 500€ for a PS4 to play a free to play game!

        • LordHikaru on September 23, 2013

          >_> You pay just as much for a PC to play free games. Its a redundant argument. But this is one of those dead end discussions so I’m just gonna leave it at that.

          it’s 400 not 500.your thinking of the xbox 1,that is 500.PS4 is 400 and actually has f2p titles.xb1 has no real f2p presences.

    Is it just me or does this look like darksouls/demons souls? still looks great with the visuals and the idea looks sorta mid evil with tech? interesting is interesting!

    So..it’s Warframe..but with dragons. Uh….okay? So? People..seriously. Cut the fanboy fuel line for a sec and step back, I implore you.

    • RyuZwei on September 22, 2013

      You’re kidding right?…. Where are you getting this comparison from?… your ass? Honestly, the whole concept behind Warframe and Deep Down are completely different and just the fact that you just said that shows you either haven’t even played Warframe or you simply played it for 5 minutes and acted like you knew what the game was about which shows in this comment.

    Like what I am seeing so far in terms of visuals, would love to see more of this game though.
