Scientists are currently unsure if Zippy is a newly discovered electric fish or genetic mutation.

Tails from the East

Long ago there lived two brothers, Frost the Ice Dragon, and Flame the Fire Dragon. Flame possessed a hot temper, a fiery heart, and eyes like burning rubies. Frost held a cool disposition, a curious spirit, and brilliant eyes the shade of sapphires. One day Frost saw chaos ensuing below the seas they controlled and took the form of a Great White shark to investigate below. Tough blue scales covered him from nose to fin, and ice-cold horns protruded from his face and all the way down his back. Flame with his competitive spirit followed suit, shape-shifting into a crimson red Great White. From hadal depths came terrible sea-monsters, which attacked all that lived above their dominion. Angered by this the two brothers worked tirelessly and fought back the monsters, driving them back into the depths. Pleased with the harmony they had returned to the sea, both Frost and Flame kept their Great White form and it is said to this day they rule from below bringing peace across all seas.

Item Drops - 65 New Skins!

Start collecting 65 all-new shark and weapon skins by playing PvP matchmaking on official Depth servers. Item drops are time based and can occur at the end of a match for players who have been playing matches without leaving. All of these new skins are also eligible for use in Steam Trading and the Steam Marketplace.

New Map: Breach

After having located hidden pirate treasure and later losing it during a training mission, Stubbs has returned to the wreckage to retrieve his lost treasure. Fight sharks and hunt for Stubbs' treasure while surrounded by beautiful coral and a sunken bomber. There's plenty of gold in the area so get out there and find it!

Breaching - Attack from above!

Have you ever wanted to soar out of the water and take to the skies? Or maybe there have been pesky divers sitting at the ocean surface and you've wanted an alternate angle of attack... perhaps from above. Well you're in luck, the sharks of Depth definitely haven't skipped tail day and are now fully capable of breaching (and beaching themselves) by lunging and darting out of the water.

Lighting Upgraded -It's a bright new future!

Lighting for maps has been updated with sharper shadows, realistic directional lighting, and the caustics now feature chromatic aberration for increased realism. Along with these map lighting changes players will now always cast dynamic shadows, and shadows cast on the player are more accurately reflected.

New Languages: Chinese, Japanese, and Korean

Depth is now available in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean! Make sure Steam's language has been set for use in-game.

New East Asia Matchmaking Region

To coincide with the additional language support for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, a new matchmaking region for East Asia has been added with servers hosted in Tokyo.

About This Game

Play as a shark or a diver in a dark aquatic world and overcome your enemies by employing cunning, teamwork, and stealth. Depth blends tension and visceral action as you team up against AI or be matched with other players in heart pounding combat.

Key features

  • Play as a shark
    As any one of 7 shark species, speed and senses are your greatest weapons. Stalk your prey from across the ocean and tear them in half with your razor sharp teeth. Be a Great White, Tiger, Mako, Bull , Hammerhead, Thresher ...... or even the legendary Megalodon!
  • Play as a diver
    As a human diver you must explore the abyss in search of treasure to upgrade your arsenal. Defend yourself with a range of high powered gear, from spearguns and pistols to underwater assault rifles and explosive sea mines.
  • Heart pounding atmosphere
    Experience the dread that comes from swimming in the darkness of the ocean. Dynamic lighting and shadows create a unique and gut-wrenching atmosphere that will have you on edge from the moment you dive in.
  • Evolve your play style
    Unlock exotic new weapons for your diver, or 'evolutions' for your shark that open up new tactical possibilities as you play the game. Persistent stat tracking and meaningful steam achievements will also give you something to shoot for (in some cases, quite literally!)
  • Practice offline with AI bots
    Not feeling quite ready to plunge into online play? Depth allows you to hone your skills against some alarmingly clever AI enemies who can be configured in several modes of difficulty.

A fun shark game. Where you play as a diver in a team of five,on the Blood And Gold Gamemode trying to survive from the two sharks while only having twenty-two lifes protecting a robot called S.T.E.V.E as it opens safes to get treasure,or you can play as a shark which also only get twenty-two lifes to try and stop the divers from delivering S.T.E.V.E back to the boat. Or kill the divers until they run out of lifes.

This game is great. Yeah, you can be a shark. But you do not want to be a shark-only player. Being a diver is as great as being a shark. Amazing graphics. Many things you can do. As a shark, you can break things, which is great. As a diver you need to follow S.T.E.V.E and look out for incoming sharks. Don't worry, there is a heartbeat when a shark is near.

Great Game! Fast pace and very balanced in terms of difficulties. Each shark has its advantages and disadvantages. My main concern going in was the helplessness of the divers but that was a nonissue. Check out my video I made for my first time playing. It's an adrenaline rush for divers and a power trip for sharks.
I'd give it a 9/10. It really is a fun different game.

This game is great to play with a couple friends or by yourself. It has a mix of thrill and first person shooter aswell as throwing in the awesome ability to become a shark for a game and take on the divers.
The maps are all pretty cool and have a lot different play styles to them. Some are incredibly open with crashed ships that give the divers cover where others are underwater mineshafts with walls and pipes to break threw or swim around depending on who you are playing.
I would recommend buying this whenever you want, not need to wait for a sale as it is 100% worth face value price. I hope i could help you decide with you process of buying.

Alright, will I reccomend Dpeth? Certinly. But will I warn you before you buy it? Yes.
This game proveds hours and hours and hours of fun, wether you are shooting sharks, eating divers, or both.
But the learning curve on this game is extremely steep and with a bad tutorial, new players mostly get crushed and stop playing after high levels stomp on them. I suggest ginding someone who plays the game before purchasing, but should you? Yes.

A neat, asynchronous FPS/ melee game. Four divers armed with pistols (upgrading to dual, rifles, spearguns, and bombs) have to escort a remote submersible (S.T.E.V.E) through one of a dozen maps. Any treasure they pick up AND take to S.T.E.V.E. is cashed in for new kit. Also at the end of each stage the divers get a cash bonus. At the end the divers have to escort S.T.E.V.E back to the surface. Against them two sharks - they have to stop the divers by killing them - or by destroying S.T.E.V.E.

This at first would seem incredibly lob sided. However played honestly the sharks can always see the divers whilst divers have to have an actual visual or help from another source to see the sharks. Alone in open water divers get picked off easily by sharks. Four in an undersea room with S.T.E.V.E., one in each corner, can make the shark experience akin to the final scene of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid".

The humans play very much like standard FPSs although the three dimensional movement and the the shark's better speed and vision can make it a fraught experience. The sharks have to be far more cunning. The humans outnumber them and have long range weaponry. Skill plays a huge part. Level 100 sharks (the highest) can enter a room, seize a diver, and flip out again in under a second making most countermeasures worthless. Less experienced sharks can become (1) disorientated and (2) dead very quickly.

The game earns major kudos for having a fully working single player (identical to the multiplayer but with Bots) where the repetition of "sus" kills by the the computer reassures that humes may not be using dark side tactics after all.

Dark side ? Possibly. There are complaints but mainly shouted down but they would say that wouldn't they ? Definitely better than TF 2 in any event.

The community is less toxic than most although rage quitting in novice sharks is not unknown. The missing player is then replaced by a bot who are very competent. Bots frequently head leaderboards. There seems to be no penalty for inactivity so occasionally players can get lumbered with a team mate who doesn't quit but doesn't do anything else either.

As a diver if you're up against a Level 100 shark you'll probably lose but you just have to man up and take out as many as you can. Killing a level 100 shark is always worthwhile.

There's also a Megaladon game with one giant shark and many divers. The shark has to kill as many divers as possible, whoever kills the shark becomes the shark.

This is a Ronseal game. There are few frills (altough players who stick to the end can pick up skins for their kit. I love the bright red mines and singing "ch, ch, cherry bomb" as an enemy shark discovers you're not as unprotected as first thought) - you can't see your feet as a diver for example. But what it has is the addictive "just one more go" of the best games. Human variation means that the games are never identical and there's enough variants in kit and evolutions (for the sharks) to give you tactical options.

It's good clean fun. Target it in a sale at under £6.00 and you'll get a bargain.

I've been a shark addict since I was 4 years old, reading, watching documentaries, studying everything about sharks and everything about the sea.
I love the ocean with a passion that I cannot describe in words, my dream was to be a Marine Biologist (didn't happen', my life aspiration is different) and in the future I see myself living in Hawaii, learning to surf and talk to fish.
Now that that is out of my system.
This game is super fun, specially when you are a shark and you just rip those invasive divers asunder.
Disclaimer: You have higher chance of being hit by a lightning than to be a victim of shark attacks. We kill 100 million sharks a year from the shark fin trade and mass industrial fishing. We must be conscious of our part and their part. Sharks are vital to a healthy ecosystem and we must stop the killing. Do your part and make this known, specially if you life in coastal areas. Thank you for reading.
