Deep Down is free-to-play, open beta near PS4 launch in Japan

Capcom announced Deep Down will be free-to-play on PS4 during a Tokyo Game Show presentation today. As relayed by Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, an open beta is targeted for close to the console's launch in Japan, due February 22, 2014.

Both Sony and Capcom have noted increased interest in free-to-play games, with the former having already announced other F2P games for its next-gen console. At E3, Yoshida said that the PS Plus requirement for online multiplayer isn't mandated for F2P games.
