New screenshots of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down were released by Sony Online Entertainment. Also, they have shared new information on some of the different kinds of weapons and armor that will be available in the final game.
More information regarding the three types of available weapons was shared. The choice of weapon is crucial to defeat the monsters encountered in the game’s dungeons.
The spear is a weapon based on accuracy, which can hit different parts of the body following the “eye poking” concept. It can seal away the attack of a monster by hitting the arm, or hamper its movement by hitting the feet or the knee. Since every monster has a weakness, using a spear with accuracy can be very advantageous.
The one handed sword has the advantage of being able to use a shield, allowing the player to block enemy attacks and be offensive at the same time. The speed of the sword also gives an advantage, especially in tight situations. Given its defensive advantage, this kind of sword can be defined the easiest to use for beginners.
Two handed swords have their main advantage in a considerable attack power and range, but they lose in attack speed to one handed swords and spears. They’re also good to defeat monsters that have a small attack range.
Deep Down weapons are completely at the disposal of the players, they can use them in any way they want, but using the best choice of weapon against the right monsters will certainly give you an edge over them.
The screenshots show the concept art of few of the armors in the game. However, there will be a large difference due to the fact that players enter dungeons through touching a statue. They will appear in the dungeon wearing the armor and wielding the weapons related to the time period that statue originates from.
Deep Down is set to release sometime in 2014. You can check out all of the images in the gallery below:
