PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Gets New and Beautiful 1080p Screenshots; New Update Promised for June

Capcom’s Producer Kazunori Sugiura released today two brand new screenshot of the PS4 exclusive Deep Down on Twitter after months of relative silence. You can see them above and below

An announcement was also included with the screenshots:

Producer Sugiura here. Currently Deep Down is being developed intensively at GW moving towards the public beta test. PS4 users have waited a lot, but please wait a bit longer.

We’re publishing two new screenshots of the game in development. The public beta test is currently scheduled for the summer.

Our boss Ono-san says “summer is when you’re wearing short sleeves” and we like to do that in the office but….  We will report again on our progress in June!

The message is actually quite interesting. First of all it mentions that the beta test will be public (so you better get those Japanese accounts ready. You can find a great walkthrough on how to make one here). The part about short sleeves may actually mean that the new update could come before it’s officially summer, and that could match the mention of June, since the summer officially starts on June 21st.

That could point to the possibility of the announcement being made at E3, which will be between June 10th and June 12th, and it’s indeed before summer officially starts, but everyone is already wearing short sleeves.

Word on the street is that Capcom will have a sizable presence at Los Angeles’ show. Hopefully we’ll hear something about a western localization then as well.

Interestingly, both screenshots are in 1080p (you can click on them to see them at their full resolution), which is quite rare for Deep Down assets, that are normally released in downsized resolutions.

    Very awesome. Can’t wait to hear/see more about this during E3. 🙂

  • skytroler

    looks no better than ryse lol . all those low texture rocks

    • Redinferno124

      I’ll agree with you for now only because there are many other PS4 games I’m much more interested in than this.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Is that really necessary? They’re two extremely different games.

      • skytroler

        sorry but i really like deep down. just that it looks different from reveal

        • Hwoarang

          You are trying way too hard!

        • superkarma

          Stop trolling, You’re awful at it. You don’t like Deep Down. You clearly don’t have a PS4.

          If you’re going to troll, at least put effort into it. This is just very sloppy work, sir.

        • JustGaming

          I’ll admit that the reveal trailer and everything we have seen so far was a little different, but it’s not night-and-day. There’s nothing wrong with the rock textures either, I’ve seen shots AND footage where the lighting reveals lovely textures and reflections. Panta Rhei truly is an engine to watch from Capcom, procedurally generated environments with god-knows what lurking around the corner? I’m in.

        That’s………just soooo wrong.

          Kaz is Spider-Man, accept it. Embrace it.

          • Redinferno124

            His face is…….just so damn frightening. That smile…it pierces into my soul, forever burning it’s awful gaze into my mind.

          • Hwoarang

            I actually posted that one accidentally, I was just about to replace it before I saw you replying so I felt like it needed to stay 🙁 I have a lot of Kaz gifs all in a seperate bookmarks folder lol 😀

          • Redinferno124

            The Kaz gifs range from hilarious to creepy.

          • Hwoarang

            I wonder who makes them? I wish I could make gifs.

          • Redinferno124

            Sony fans with lots of time or Sony itself for all we know.

          • Hwoarang

            I want to post a Keanu Reeves image right now but I don’t want to spam lol

          • Redinferno124

            wait about 30 comments.

    • superkarma

      Says the blatant Xbox fanboy who recently made an account specifically to troll Sony articles. How shocking.

    • NinoBr0wn

      Oh my god low res rocks!

    • They Call Me Senpai

      You poor, blind troll.

    • ponydestroyer

      do you really think ryse looks better ? and sorry for a buttload of images

      • Raven Nafariea

        Time to up-vote again. That must get tiring after every post, uh? lol

        • ponydestroyer

          pshh. how would i do that ?

      • Eden’s Cross

        You’re comparing real time footage with a pre-rendered trailer disguised as a real-time demo. Not really credible.

        • tcnitsni

          Actually, that Ryse screenshot is from a pre-rendered cutscene. Deep Down has video of it running, and it’s been proven very real, and running on PS4 hardware. It’s not pre-rendered.

          • Eden’s Cross

            It’s pre-rendered in-engine cutscenes to save on loading times and memory, not to mention the downgrade that Deep Down has received, it still looks great sure but that demo was pre-rendered target footage and therefore invalid to use as a comparison.

          • tcnitsni

            Actually, Ryse cut-scenes are pure video. They are not in the engine at all. They are basically blu-ray video files being played back.

          • Mikail

            I agree with you, they aren’t in engine graphic, but build by pre rendered in engine graphic from the earlier pc build (on e3 showcase demo). Dual shocker had article about the Crytech developer explained how they downgraded the polygon from 130 millions polygon to 80 millions polygon.

          • Dan

            They did not DOWNGRADE (which has a negative connotation) they were able to make an 80 million polygon character look like a 130.

          • Mikail
    • IRISHJOE13

      everyone praising Ryse like its the best looking game out right now. NOT EVEN CLOSE. Get your eyes chacked. Also, this does look better

  • Hwoarang

    Nice to see so much variety in the environments, I was getting worried when I only saw that same dungeon for the first couple of trailers and screenshots. I can’t wait for this, looks like my kind of game!

  • Redinferno124
    • Rasheed Jackson

      One piece ftw!

  • Stranger On The Road

    Dear Capcom;
    Please release an RPG that make use of the engine used in Deep Down and make it look as amazing.

    Someone who is yet to play Dragon’s Dogma, but loved the demo.

  • DuckNation
  • doom guy

    Awaiting a retail version announcement with all the “Freemium” stuff included.

  • skytroler

    its funny that how you guys overreact but it looks nothing. its basically a copy of dark souls

    • Raven Nafariea

      Okay, we got your point. Move along now. FFS!

    • Redinferno124

      I sort of think that’s Capcom’s intent.

    • Hwoarang

      Looks like you made your account no longer than 18 hours ago. Pathetic.

    • Eden’s Cross

      In that case hopefully it’s a copy of Dark Souls 1 & not Dark Souls 2.

    • They Call Me Senpai

      Far from it, actually.

    • JustGaming

      You have little proof of this.

    • superkarma

      Nah, the only thing funny here is how awful you are at trolling.

    • Jecht_Sin

      It’s an RPG, it looks great, it’s coming relatively soon for PS4. What else do you need?

    • Somebodyissilent

      Dark Souls is a copy of Demon Souls kiddo.

      • Michael Balchunas

        Not agreeing with him but the same people made those 2 games. It’s could almost be argued that it is a sequal.

        • Somebodyissilent

          In fact some would call Dark Souls spiritual successor to Demon Souls.

  • They Call Me Senpai

    Looking good, hopefully they improved the gameplay.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Deep Down and Destiny beta in July would be nuts.

    • Solid Snake

      And also the release of Planetside 2 in june, will be the final nail in the coffin for Xbone….

      • You are flat out wrong

        Bu bu but Sunset Overhype!!!

      • EmpeRawD

        Ya don’t say? Lol

    • EmpeRawD

      Really! Lol

  • James Lee

    This looks pretty damn good for a free to play, i just hope its not like warframe
    that game would have been a lot more interesting if most of the stuff wasn’t blocked off to force a purchase
    high hopes for this game i just hope there’s no freemium stuff which ultimately turns my stomach south

  • Bruno Alhindi

    heard it was free to play?

    • truthtellerdealwithit


    • Stranger On The Road

      that is true; and for now it will only be released in Japan; no word if/when it will reach the west.

  • truthtellerdealwithit

    Every single trailer was in English. If its not coming to the west why would they make English trailers with japanese subtitles. And reveal it at the playstation reveal event in Merica.

  • Pedestrian

    it’s just me or the guy at the bottom picture don’t have any pants on?

  • Gamingboy 321

    This game looks fantastic !!

  • RealityCheck2013

    WOW 😛 That Pic looks AMAZING(the bottom one) 😛 + In a Japanese Video a few months ago there was a bit in this game were a guy asked his friend to join him while he was playing this game to fight a big monster(thingy) 😀 & that looked MEGA-COOL the way the friend just jumped into the game. This game could be brilliant 😛

  • HustyparmenCZ

    looks amazing 🙂 and this is gonna be free to play!

    • k j

      F2P= pure evil

  • I can’t wait to see pics of Dark Souls 3 with this quality! 😀

    I do love these kind of games hoping to see more from it soon.

  • phaedruss

    Uhh why wouldn’t there be a western localization? They showed the game at their PS4 announcement meeting in new york.

  • Branden Thomas

    I mean it looks nice or whatever but what about the gameplay? The footage they shown off looked so damn boring. It was like they tried to replicate Dark Souls except they forgot to program more than just stabbing as an action.

    I wouldn’t overhype this yet. I know you don’t have much to play on your next-gen consoles but be honest. This ain’t shit lol.

    • Dennis Djoenz

      I know right. From what I have seen it was just poking with a stick lmao.

    • EmpeRawD

      You just spoiled a lot of wet dreams! Lol

  • dranzer1

    Ryse on Ps4 lmao

    • superkarma

      I see you’re still trolling Sony articles, eh? What a surprise. Also, I didn’t realize all medieval games were inspired by Ryse. Thanks for that insightful piece of knowledge, though.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Your comment implies Ryse sucks, so thanks for that.

    • MTM2

      The medieval era and the Roman era were completely different eras. derp.

  • Kamille

    isn’t this just another pay 2 win, I mean, F2P game? Meh.

  • DLConspiracy//

    Looks pretty. The fighting mechanics in this game seem kind of weird even though there are specifics involved with where you hit people. Still looks really nice though.

  • Dangerousjo 1985

    Looks ok
