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.

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.

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 a great fps..you play as a shark in a team of 2 or as a diver in a team of 5..the object of a shark is to kill divers before they reach the end point and the objective for divers is to kill the sharks off or make it to the endpoint...this game gets the hart pumping

Do you like eating seels? Humans? Do you like smashing your head into walls, terrifying other people, and just generally doing shark things?

Great! You will like this game!

Are you terrified of sharks? Do you like gold?! TREASURE?! Do you like to explode, shoot, stab, and maim sharks?

Great! You will like this game!

This game is super simple, and super fun. The two roles are equally as challenging and exciting.

If you are looking for a game for you and your friends to play when passing time, this is great for that. You don't have to invest hours of time grinding to level, worrying about rank, or any other meta that we find ourselves in when looking for a fun multiplayer game.

You just hop in, queue up, and have fun.

10/10 would buy again.

Bought as it was on offer for only £4 and thought it looked interesting... it's awesome.

Incredibly fun MP.

Very different experience playing as either diver or shark (my fav)

For the current price you seriously need to buy this game! Best value steam purchase I have ever made.

Enjoy!

Hard game to master! Youll get eaten by sharks many times! As a shark youll get killed many times. When you get a hand of the game and the mechanics and the matchmaking does a good job the game is a amazing intense blast. Cons i must say are the community. Sometimes it can be a bit toxic and you will feel frustrated! But the game in its core is amazing!

Easy to learn, difficult to master, this game has a lot of depth (heh) that might turn new players off, but is a fantastic experience if you're willing to spend some time mastering the mechanics. I feel like I improve as a player with every game, and there's a very real satisfaction in victory

When I first saw this game, I thought it looked extremely one-note. Four players are divers, two are sharks, sharks have to kill divers and divers have to survive. Sounds like fun for a couple matches before it gets old. As it turns out, Digital Confectioners have put a lot of love and care into such a simple concept.

First off, the gameplay. As mentioned before, Depth pits four divers against two sharks. The divers essentially play a sort of extended escort mission, guarding their robot companion as he tools around the map, busting open treasure chests and safes and other sunken loot containers. Typically this escort will be split into two alternating stages: When the robot swims between containers, this typically forces the divers to cross open water - a prime chance for the sharks to swoop in snatch someone before vanishing into the darkness. When the robot reaches a safe, it will stop for a few minutes to cut it open. Typically, these containers are in enclosed structures, which put the divers at an advantage. The sharks have to plan their kills carefully to avoid being trapped in small rooms full of bullets. Thankfully, most of these structures have hidden entryways that the sharks can break through, opening the area up.

My one big qualm with the gameplay is bots - specifically diver bots. The diver bots have damn near perfect aim, which is a REALLY big deal when sharks rely on being fast and hard to see. Having a bot on your team more or less guarantees a victory.

Moving on, the atmosphere created by the gameplay is perfect. As a diver, you're either sacred ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ crossing open water, or watching three or four different doorways (or more) for a shark to mosey on in. As a shark, you feel extremely powerful, carefully picking out which little diver you want to eat next. By the end of a match, the tables are typically somewhat turned, as divers begin to pick up bigger and better weapons, forcing the sharks to strategize all the more. Generally speaking, the game seems fairly balanced. Without much of a skill difference between teams, divers seem to have a sliiiight advantage.

Speaking of atmosphere, Depth is gorgeous. In total, there are 12 maps as of this review, most of which have very unique flavours. One map takes place in a flooded mine, forcing players to navigate through claustrophobic mine shafts and tunnels. Another takes place on a sunken oil rig, hanging over the abyss. Of course, there's also a map that takes you through a bunch of sunken pirate ships, because not having a pirate ship map would be illegal. There's also an Olmec city/temple complex, a medieval castle and many more.

Thankfully, you can filter out maps you don't like, or I would have never known there were maps other than Olmec because IT'S THE ONLY ♥♥♥♥ING MAP I GET WHEN I LEAVE IT ON.

But Depth needs replayability to keep your interested, and replayability it has. More or less. Sharks can pick from six different species, each of which has different stats and a unique ability. You could play a tanky Great White, a speedy Mako, a stealthy Tiger shark, or one of the more off-beat species like a Hammerhead, which has low damage but can smash players into walls for quick and easy kills.

Divers, on the other hand, can pick from a handful of weapons and consumables. There aren't many weapons, but each one can be upgraded in a number of ways. The consumables typically provide support effects, like the ubiqituous medpacks and ammo packs, flares and sonar which reveal nearby sharks, shark shield that hide divers in the radius from the shark's vision, and mines. Which explode. And make everyone have a good time.

And I guess there's skins and junk that you can get, but only a handful of shark skins are even noticeable. Most of the time, if divers are close enough to get a good look at your skin, both of you are doing something very wrong.

Ultimately, I think Depth has juuuust enough content to justify a buy at full price if you like underwater atmospheric games. If you see it on sale (like it is right now), don't think. Just buy.

The games Metacritic score is based on an Early Access release from years ago, when there was only one shark to play as.

As it is now, this game deserves much more than 65/100. I haven't gotten into a multiplayer game for ages, not since TF2 in fact. This one has kept my attention. I strongly recommend reading the 'How to Shark' Steam guide though, as the tutorial is bare bones for the shark.

The divers are much easier to start with, since you're playing an fps, only IN SPACE UNDER WATER!

Basically, this game is a small gem. Easy to learn, hard to master. The downside is the community. Few hundreds of people play it regularly. You will meet high-skilled players a lot. They will crush you like a bug, most of the time. Well, you can "git gud" or what most people do, leave the match before it has even started, because you already know it's wasting your time. You can't escape this. Some high-skilled players even create another steam account, buy Depth again and "surprise" you. Of course, you can't prove it. You see people with ten or twenty matches on the record, knowing every corner of the map, knowing how to perfectly handle a certain shark with special skill requirements, avoiding every possible mistake. In the end you either adapt to the scene or leave them alone. I guess, most people better leave them alone.
