Fresh Blood Update
Fresh Blood is Depth's latest free update adding two new playable divers Finn & Shelly, a Blood & Gold variant of Station, scopes, new diver upgrades, new evolutions and more!

Check out the update website:

Maintence done! You may need to restart steam to get the latest update. (last updated: 9:15AM PST)

New Divers: Shelly & Finn

Shelly: Lead scientist for the Specimen Program at the Aquatics Research Lab, Shelly specializes in cybernetic organisms and was responsible for the creation of Specimen 8. After Specimen 8's escape to open water, Shelly was tasked with recovery of the beast due to her intimate knowledge of its systems and capabilities.

Finn: An astute surgeon and well read marine biologist, Finn oversees all medical operations and upgrades within the Specimen Program. With considerable experience handling the beasts, Finn was the first choice to join Shelly in the recovery of Specimen 8 after its escape from the Aquatics Research Lab.

New Map: Station
An old disused pumping station, used to refine and filter natural crude oil lies forgotten. Rumored to be the home of Specimen 8, Shelly and Finn have done their best to guide Captain Stubbs and the rest of the crew to this location for a chance at recovery.

New Shark Evolutions!

Killing a diver vitalizes the shark, immediately resetting the cooldown of its active ability.

Satiated by the taste of any blood, evolutions that trigger on diver kills now also trigger after seal kills.

Long-awaited Skins for the Thresher and Great White


For years the military has been searching for a way to gain an edge in aquatic warfare. It started with training dolphins... but that wasn't enough. Deep in an ocean laboratory at an undisclosed location, they have taken it to the next level. Unfortunately their creation managed to chew through a titanium fence, slaughter its handlers, and escape to open water. This is going to be one heck of a cover-up...

If there is a lucky shark somewhere in the ocean, this isn't it. He has been poked, punctured, and lacerated by almost every type of flotsam you could hope to find at sea. The collection of splinters lodged in his tail have earned him a deadly reputation among divers who have been shredded by his prickly appendage.

Depth's main menu has been expanded with a new area for browsing and managing skins. Preview and apply skins that you have access to, see how unlockable skins are gained, and purchase paid skins all from within the game.

All new and future skins will be available only through the in-game store, and all old skins are now available through the in-game store.

This includes the major changes since the last update (minor bugfixes and changes are not included)


  • New Diver Upgrade: Extra Mags (Base Unlock)

  • Diver Skins, Shark Skins and Preorder Skins added to Steam Inventory


  • Head Sway now reduces sway when normal swimming and DPVing. This is to help with motion sickness for some users.

  • Fix: Infinite loop if you set your resolution to be really square (ex. 1400x1200).

The in-game store uses the Steam Overlay for buying items, so yes you can buy items there using Steam Wallet (or a credit card).
