Playable footage and more weird details: It takes place in New York!
We finally got a look at Capcom’s mysterious Deep Down. The PS4 exclusive was first shown off when Sony announced its new console. Following a gameplay demonstration, Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono showed another three people, one on each screen, actually battling the dragon shown off in the game’s launch trailer. This fight will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show.
Other details raise as many questions as they answer. “Content of the map is automatically generated,” for example. Weapons and monsters, too.
As for the story, Deep Down takes place 2094 in New York City. I know, right? There seems to be an Assassin’s Creed Desmond style deal. You play as a person who “reads memories from past items,” which gives you hints as you “embark to solve mysteries.” You’re a memory archaeologist, of sorts.
It seems like Dark Souls with an online co-op focus and Assassin’s Creed trappings. Interested in hearing more from TGS, Are you down?
