Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono took to the stage at Sony’s PS4 reveal event tonight, to pledge the publisher’s support for the console with a new engine codenamed Panta Rhei.
The engine will harness next-gen technology, allowing Capcom to take its games in bold new directions. Ono showed a new IP concept running on the engine, a new IP codenamed ‘Deep Down’. It looked like Dragon’s Dogma 2.
It showed a heavily armoured knight fighting a dragon in an icy cavern. It told players to ‘conquer their fear’ or ‘die a coward’. It then showed a social concept that saw the knight asking fellow PS4 players for help in taking down the monster, and in sharing resources.
