Capcom's Deep Down is an online PS4 game - trailer

The second Deep Down trailer has revealed that the new Capcom IP is an online game. Featuring glimpses of a series of creepy monsters in a subterranean environment, it also suggests there's a horror element to the fantasy game, which was announced for PS4 in February and runs on Capcom's next-gen Panta Rhei engine.

The first Deep Down trailer featured a band of medieval journeymen - which seemed to be comprised of the classic holy trinity of knight, archer, and monk/healer – exploring an underground environment before being set upon by a large fire-breathing dragon. It also featured the tagline: “Conquer your fear or die a coward.”

Quite what form of online functionality Deep Down will offer is unclear. Capcom isn’t attending Gamescom later this month in any capacity, but the publisher reportedly said today that it plans to showcase Deep Down at Tokyo Game Show 2013 in September. Capcom said last month that the title has no connection to RPG series Dragon's Dogma.

    Wait, is it just me, or did the graphics look nowhere near as high resolution as the PS4 conference trailer?

    Sounds very intriguing...the game itself, not the online part.

    The online announcement of it puts a dent on my excitement for it. Still, as long as the single player remains the focus, I'll keep an eye out.

    So far I'm liking the look of this, but then again any new IP that isn't an FPS or cover-shooter gets my vote at the minute ;)

    Reading this I suddenly had the idea of trying to find a match between tank/healer/DPS and guitar/bass/drums or vice versa.

    The concept seems neat, but this being a Capcom game (and judging by some of the 'meh' voice acting in the trailer) I think this might have a Resident Evil type 'story' to it. Still, could be cool.

    Does look good and online with a horror base it seems really interesting, but yeah Capcom kinda hit or miss. Watch them put a rogue group of evil journeymen.

    Hah, I wouldn't put it past them. Still, curious to see how it pans out.
