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.

This game is the most fun I've had in a long time. I love the horro aspect mixed with a first person shooter for the divers side but wish for it to be toched on some more. Anyone new to the game starting as a diver will go from shivers down the spine to wetting themselfs in horro when they see a shark comming at them. But now that I have played for some time that feeling is gone and I most sertonly enjoyed having it.Though there is a lack of weapons there is the basics and thats quite enough. Even with the original feeling i had when i first got the game gone it's still a blast to be playing especially with friends.There are some weapons need balencing like the single shot pistol and a lack of trashure for four people on the map in blood money but those are simple fixes and not even big enough problems for me to stop playing. So I would gladly reccomend this game to anyone sick off shooting guy in T-Shirt with forein accent and even if your arn't sick you need to get this game.

How to enjoy Depth; A guide
Step 1. Have friends
Step 2. Have a few drinks
Step 3. Get eaten/shot to death
Step 4. Scream at your friends in terror/triumph
Step 5. Laugh at your friends pain
Step 6. Make ALL the jaws refference you can. Don't worry, it won't get old.
Step 7. Return to Depth as necessary when you want a fun/funny evening with your friends.
Side note* Don't ask me about matchmaking, I have no patience for online multiplayer with people I don't know.

Decent game. Good visuals. Can be slightly unbalenced with new people/people who aren't that good at playing sharks.

  • Do not purchase this game if you're a seal.

  • Do not launch this game if you're drunk, intending to play as a shark.

  • And stop waiting for Jaws theme already!

Highly recommended.

A lot of shark V human games out there.. this is my favorite out of the ocean games ive played. teamwork is key, sometimes you play players that have played a thousand games and you get destroyed, sometimes you get an opposing team that has only played a couple of games and you do the destroying. I would recommend this game though definitely.. not sure which is my favorite side to play as, i like gathering teasure, but i also like tearing humans to shreds as sharkey sharks.

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!

Short: This game is fun

Longer: This game is a very fun 4v2 survive it out or wipe out the other team kinda game. Its even better when you play with a friend(s). But now they added random skin drops that you can sell? All the more reason to get this amazing awesomeness. I recommend you get the Anniversary Edition if this ever goes on sale again its great and pretty worth it if you ask me.

Little Extra for you ppl that own this already: type in :dappershark: :BibleThump: and :tsundere: in the chat of the game its pretty cool.
