deep down is an upcoming free-to-play action game by Capcom Online Games, where you’ll be traveling back to the past of various eras in order to search for memories to solve mysteries. Here’s a look at some details shared through Sony’s Play.Community blog, on how players will be using weapons and armor in the game.
In deep down, players will enhance their strengths by acquiring better weapons and armor. Selecting your weapons according to what you’ll be fighting and the types of dungeons you’ll be exploring will be a major part of the game’s strategic element.
Here’s a look at some of the weapons you’ll be using in deep down:
The spear is considered a standard weapon in deep down. The concept behind the weapon is to “aim and thrust,” and it will have various other uses aside from damaging, such as hitting the enemy’s foot to slow them down, or their arms to stop them from attacking.
Various enemies will have different weak points, so the Spear will come in handy for hitting those exact spots for critical damage and other effects.
The best part about the one-handed sword is that it also lets you use a shield, making it possible to block enemy hits. Additionally, it’s fairly quick, so you’ll be able to take on several foes at a time. With its ability to use a shield and block, this weapon is recommended to novice players.
The two-handed uses its high strength to its advantage. It might be slower than the spear or one-handed sword, but the extra damage makes up for it. It also has a long attack range, so it’ll come in handy when it comes to taking out small, pesky enemies.
The above is a look at some of the armor illustrations, inspired by those used in 15th century Europe. Your equipment will be divided into several parts such as body, head, and more. Your armor set up will determine the types of skills you’ll have available.
The types of weapons and armor you’ll be using will also be determined by a statue that has the memories of a generation, giving you the appropriate equipment of its era.
deep down is currently in development for PlayStation 4.
