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.

Performance Optimizations

We've made a lot of changes across the board to optimize and improve performance for both your GPU and CPU.

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.

Start game
Hate that I'm surrounded by water
Hate that I'm in a cage and can't move
Finally FREEDOM!!!
The cage opens
Try to kill guys next to me
Can not
Swim freely
Hear a heartbeat
Big fish comes out of nowhere
Eats the guy next to me
Mad I didn't eat him first
Shark bites me around waist
Poke him in the eye with a knife
Give a evil laugh
Another shark comes out of nowhere
Curse this sea life
I'm bleeding
I love blood
It's ok
Hammerhead comes out of shadows
Lunges at me
Gets stuck on railing
Kill it
Great white comes through the ceiling
Kill him
Double kill
Hammerheads back already
I'm now half the person I was to start
The other half in the shark's stomach

10/10 death by heart attack simulator


Here is a play through with out some annoying Youtuber screaming like a girl or talking the whole way through.

One of the most fun 2 vs 4 (or 1 vs 4) of this genre. It is quite underrated unfortunately. 😉

A very unique mix of FPS with third-person action. It's really entertaining playing as both the diver and the shark, with easy controls for both. While playing as either, you earn money/points that can be used to buy new weapons or unlock new abilities. This allows you to try new strategies in every session. This keeps the game feeling fresh.

The visuals are also gorgeous - it really does feel like a real uderwater world, and the top-notch shader work for the sharks makes them look really lifelike as well.

If you're on the fence about buying this game, it's totally worth it IMO. There is still a very active community playing online, and I've never had to wait more than a minute or two before finding a server and that's because I'm a nightowl. During the daytime you can find people to play with in just seconds.

i like the game and actually prob would recomend it but the reviews are too positive. The gameplay is limited which is fine, but the balance isn't right. The divers are overpowered. Smallest bit of teamwork will ensure victory for divers while the sharks struggle with low hitpoints and a short window of time to get the job done.

This game was built around the idea of thrashing your mouse to tear divers apart. Cool gameplay trick, but incomplete. Hopes it continues to improve because it could be awesome.

Also the game has a fairly small player base which really isnt fair, but nothing a good steam sale can't fix.

Buy this overpriced game to be killed repeatedly by people with 1000+ hours!
Iffy, if you want to play with a full team with your friends, buy it. MM takes 3 minutes and most of the time you will lose to vetrans.

Great game!! Divers and sharks are equally fun, feels very balanced. Occassionally I'll come up against a team of pro divers with thousands of games played where it feels like its genuinely unbeatable but I have only 100 games played for divers and 100 for sharks, so its possible I'm wrong

Seriously, get this game. It is brilliant

Most of the time I played as a diver cause I am just not good as a shark! But I can tell you when are into some intense fights between humans and sharks this is your game.

One tip how to easily get gold for your team: start with a dpv and upgrade it with radar later!

Great overall game! It recently introduced a truck load of new skins (both shark and weapons) that can be unlocked by playing the game.

This game is alright. It features many different tactics to use with the different shark types. Using strength, knowledge, speed, maneuver, and the element of surprise to take out the divers. The game is tough when you first play it, but once you start playing it more and more, you get more better at it. I wish there was more to the landscape instead of just collecting treasure, like instead taking pictures of the monuments and wreckages within the maps. It doesn't matter but the game is really good when it comes to mimicing a classic shark game "Jaws: Unleashed" Because of the shark mechanics. I would reccomend this game to any person out there that has an interest in sharks and or versus games!

Depth is a game that I recommend because:
- it is a method to banish boredom
- it has a good price
- it is a horror game
- it has a good graphic
- it has multiplayer mode
- it has action
- it has trading cards

Enjoy!

quality game, both playing as shark and diver is exciting and a well crafted gameplay experience. The community is pretty small right now but in general you spend too much time waiting on games. I hope more people chose to get this game its worth it undoubtedly.

I personally think this is a great game for many reasons, the gameplay, the visuals, the sharks (especially the sharks). I love the feeling of being a diver and not knowing where the sharks are coming from, hearing your heart beat faster, SWOOSH! your teammate has dissapeared in a cloud of blood. Silence. Thump, Thump, CRASH! the roof has collapsed. You're now suddenly in a shark's mouth being shaken around violently, You're losing blood, and fast. Swishh, a net has tangled the shark, You're free! But you're still losing blood. Swimming toward the medkit, everything goes dark, you have died. Then as a shark you see the divers coming down in the cage. you feel powerful, they dont know where you are. You have the power to make the divers stain the water brown with ♥♥♥♥. coming up next to a wall. Smashing through like the Kool-Aid man and grabbing a diver then going out an oppening on the other side, taking the diver with you. But youv'e been stabbed, you're low on health and you need help. you go up and find a seal to eat and now you feel better, ready to attack. you're sneaking through the dark waters of the cove. you come up to a window near some unexpecting divers. swimming slowly through you realise youv'e made a terrible mistake, you blew up, you're in chunks floating all around. you respawn S.T.E.V.E is heading towards the magnet to be taken out of the water, you swim fast, so fast. you come up on S.T.E.V.E. You hear three loud beeps and a spear is shot directly into your side. you die. The divers are using P.A.T systems that kill you quickly. Next round you swim towards S.T.E.V.E, suddenly his outline dissapears, you swim closer everything goes blurry, you have no idea whats happening and out of nowhere you get shot and killed. they used a shark shield to scramble your noodles.

Most games like this I only enjoy playing with friends but i've had great fun playing solo (with randoms.) I recommend this game if you enjoy other similar styled titles or shooters in general.

Que times are short and the game seems pretty well balanced. I haven't encountered any hackers either and thus far the community has been friendly.
