Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia released a new developer diary-style video of the upcoming PS4 exclusive free to play RPG Deep Down, featuring not only lovely gameplay footage, but also Producer Yoshinori Ono giving new information about the game itself and the timing of the beta.
Ono-san wants to start the beta as soon as possible and to give everyone the opportunity to try the multiplayer early, possibly during the beginning of the summer (it’s worth mentioning that this is intended for Japan, nothing has been said about the west). It’s not just a matter of just enjoying an action game: he wants everyone to feel the fun of fighting together.
He also mentioned that the variety of tactics and situations in the game is increased by the inclusion of different gimmicks that are automatically generated thanks to an algorithm, including pitfalls and shifting walls different for every map, making it important and fun to explore new ways to clear the dungeons and finding new memories.
During the first introduction of the game it was briefly mentioned that the equipment could deteriorate, and that’s still going to be included in the game. Not only deteriorated equipment will be displayed graphically thanks to the rendering power of the PS4, but it will also affect the statistics and abilities granted by every piece.
Ono-san also addressed the worries that some expressed on the net and on forums that the game isn’t going to be finished at all, mentioning that it’s just taking time, and things are being worked on, as it’s visible from the video.
Below you can see the full video and feast your eyes on the beautiful 1080p graphics.
