Capcom's Big Plans For Deep Down: A 10-Year Lifespan?

While the PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down is taking longer than we'd hoped, it could end up being a true-blue gem.

In a new interview with Senior Manager of Consumer Games Development Teruki Miyashita, we find out that Capcom fully intends to deliver a top-quality product.

In fact, they want this free-to-play game to offer a "realer than real" experience by providing us with amazing technical elements. Thanks to the power of Sony's new console, Capcom can push the boundaries of visual achievement. And check out what they're doing with the audio:

"Creating a feeling of realism is critical, and this holds true for the sounds. For instance, the voices of the 'mementos (emotions)' come from the TV speakers at first, but after you pick up a certain object, you hear the voices coming from the controller in your hands. Say you put something in your pocket, you'll hear the sound right there near you--we can now offer you that kind of a 'realer than real' gaming experience. This feeling of being 'fully immersed' is of utmost priority to us."

Deep Down will be a free-to-play, online-only game and as such, it has the potential to keep growing. Miyashita says he hopes the game will have a ten-year lifespan, which is what we heard from Activision and Bungie regarding last year's Destiny. The team is planning for the long haul, but Miyashita stressed the importance of player feedback, and said they'll always make adjustments based on that information.

Lastly, he says the game "boasts a brand new gaming experience which is unlike a traditional dungeon-based game." He didn't really go into specifics but we're hoping he's right. I'm not a fan of the F2P model but if it's done correctly, Deep Down could be a hugely important title for Sony and PlayStation 4.

So I don't have to spend a cent on the game to play it?

Plants vs Zombies is Free To Play. I've put 20+hrs into that game and I haven't spent a penny. In contrast I've gotten back into Elder Scrolls Online and while I don't have to pay a Sub fee I still had to spend $60 for the game so it's Buy to Play.

Bungie said the same thing about Destiny. I'm good with the 10 year life span provided the initial release has enough content to provide a worthy experience until the next dlc or expansion releases.

My recent frustration with Destiny (again) is the lack of original content and how small each dlc pack is. There just isn't enough content in between each release.

Destinys promise is a joke to me. 10 year lifespan on a game filled with expensive DLC that doesn't last very long. Technically any game can do that. I hope this game takes a different approach. At least it's free to begin with.

the only free to play game i've played and liked is DC Universe Online.. it 's fun even if you never buy anything.. i'ver only paid for a few of the power DLCs but they're not mandatory.. you can experience the full game with ever paying and which is nice
