POWERFUL AND BRUTAL - THE MIGHTY BULL SHARK!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=577011517&fileuploadsuccess=1

The Bull shark is a medium threat with an anger problem, making it an aggressive and unpredictable foe. Though it lacks immediate force, the Bull's true strength lies in its ability to Enrage, temporarily becoming one of the strongest beasts in the sea.

Species Ability: ENRAGE
Releasing rage built from nearby diver activity, the Bull proportionally gains up to 200% Health, 200% Stamina, and 166% Damage.

YOUR NEW AUTOMATED BUDDY, P.A.T.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=577015282&fileuploadsuccess=1

This Portable Aquatic Turret is equipped with a motion sensor, tag detector, and automatic rifle. With a fragile frame and medium battery life, P.A.T. can be deployed to defend an area, or relocated in its non-combative Follow Mode.

Oh well, the Depth soundtrack has the track of the Ship Wrecked trailer (and all of the other trailers as well), much love for this.

Until Depth 2 comes out in Early Acces with an ingame shop and Micro Transactions and you name it :)

Yes, this is how you get loads of fans, by updating a game for free while giving people the option to buy cosmetic DLC.

Sales will be up with free updates so that's nice aswell.
