Capcom released new footage of the free-to-play online RPG, showcasing teams of two and four players taking on all manner of enemies including one huge monstrosity that looks a bit like a cross between a turkey and a crab - a crurkey, perhaps. Give it a crurk in the video below the break.
Deep Down is built in Capcom's new Panta Rhei engine and features procedurally generated dungeons and enemies to take on. When I played it at last year's Tokyo Game Show, movement and combat felt heavy and substantial, slightly reminiscent of Capcom's Monster Hunter series. I also discovered little hints of the game's underlying sci-fi reality behind its medieval guise, evidenced by the near-futuristic city shown in the video.
Given the news about the public beta, it's no surprise Capcom's not showing the game at this year's Tokyo Game Show. It may be a while longer before we hear of a full release for Japan, let alone one in the West.
