During Sony’s PS4 press event, the publisher showed off its next gen game Deep Down (working title) running on its new engine called Panta Rhei (codename). The game looks beautiful showing off dungeons that would put any PC crawler to shame.
Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono, the man behind the Street Fighter series took stage yesterday to show off its brand new engine, Panta Rhei. According to Ono, the new engine is the successor to the MT Framework, which is used across Resident Evil 5, 6 and Street Fighter.
According to Ono, the footage shows the game running off Panta Rhei on the PS4. There is a rumor that ‘Deep Down’ is the code name for Dragon’s Dogma, and that this would be the next gen sequel. Considering the apparent focus on Dragons in the demo, its not a stretch to believe that the game could fall in the Dogma universe.
On the heel of the PS4 event, CD Projekt RED took the opportunity to announce The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, an open world RPG for the PS4. In a press release sent out, the studio revealed that Sony contacted them several months ago to grant early access to the PS4.
We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4. It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4′s lifecycle.
This will be the first time the studio will be releasing a game for a PlayStation platform as The Witcher 2 was exclusive to the Xbox 360. According to the studio while the game is part of The Witcher trilogy, the story is standalone so it can be enjoyed by all.
The game is set to release sometime in 2014.
