New Deep Down screenshots show ice and fire

Capcom has released two new Deep Down screenshots, showing off icy and fiery environments players will visit in the online RPG.

In development at Capcom Online Games in collaboration with SCE Japan Studio, the PS4 exclusive will be free to play and will support four player co-op.

A Deep Down beta, which was originally due to begin around the launch of PS4 in Japan in February, is now scheduled to kick off this summer.

The game's producer, Kazunori Sugiura, used Twitter to post the latest screenshots and promised to deliver a further update on the game in June, according to DualShockers.

Deep Down has only officially been confirmed for release in Japan, but a western launch may be on the cards too. Capcom filed a Deep Down patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in July 2013.
