Sony Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Saturday that Capcom has decided to make its upcoming PlayStation 4 game, Deep Down, a free-to-play experience. For those unfamiliar with free-to-play, the base game will be made available free of charge, allowing players to play for free with the most basic of game mechanics available. Micro-transactions allow players to further expand the experience through buying enhancements for the game with real money. This can include new weapons, characters, or even entire levels of the game.
Deep Down has currently only been confirmed for Japan, but many gamers were hoping for a western release based on early footage. Capcom’s F2P plans may have a heavy impact on those desires.
