Song Of The Deep
Another title from Insomniac has been announced called Song Of The Deep and we have the first trailer for Song Of The Deep as well as how this game will be played out
It looks like Insomniac Games has been working on more than we thought over since their last major release as now we have another title from them on the way in form of Song Of The Deep. This is a brand new IP for them in the gameplay style of “Metroidvania” that takes place in an underwater setting where we follow the tale of Merryn who is trying to find her father who is lost in the depths of the sea. Not a horrible kind of setting for Song Of The Deep although I will say the tease and name did lead me to think we were going to see a horror game but first impressions are not always correct.
Not too much has been revealed for Song Of The Deep as is usually the case with new titles announcements. What is known from the below trailer and given out by the developer is that we will be taking a journey in the sea via a submarine and free diving to find said father. We’ll run into stage creatures, grueling puzzles, and sunken cities during our quest all while collecting something called Tyne. In game terms this will be the in-game way of upgrading our sub and gaining new skills in Song Of The Deep but I am sure there will be a much deeper explanation behind it all besides an arbitrary XP/currency system.
Song Of The Deep — Reveal Trailer
Song Of The Deep is currently slated for a Summer 2016 release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Currently you can pre-order the physical version of the game at GameStop whom is also helping to publish the game with Insomniac Games. Song Of The Deep will also be available in digital form via the usual suspects and currently holds the price tag of $14.99. It is an odd but pleasantly welcomed deviation from the usual stuff the developer crafts and I look forward to what else we will see for Song Of The Deep in the coming months. I am sure this is only the very tip of the iceberg in terms of information here.
What do you think of Song Of The Deep here? Is it the title that you thought you’d see out of Insomniac or is it a complete surprise given the Ratchet & Clank game coming up? Do you think that Song Of The Deep will get GameStop firmly on the map in terms of publishing moving forward? Let us know what you think and discuss away in the comments below. We’ll be keeping an eye on Song Of The Deep now that it has been announced and we’ll have much more on the site here soon so you better keep an eye out here for all of those updates as they come.
