At Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal earlier today, Capcom announced a new game engine named Panta Rhei and a game tentatively titled Deep Down. As Capcom has a history of porting its games to PC, and the PlayStation 4 is essentially a custom PC , we can probably expect to see the fantasy action game come our way.

We don't know much about the game, other than it's of the third-person action variety (a dungeon crawler?), it looks very pretty, and there is a very big dragon. We also know that the PS4 is releasing during the holidays this year, and if Deep Down (or whatever it ends up being called) is a launch game, we might also have it this year or, more likely, early 2014.

This may also apply to the other games demoed at the press conference, including Watch Dogs and Destiny (opens in new tab) , though we still haven't confirmed PC support for the latter.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
