Hide & Seek Update!
Progress: Servers live, enjoy! (last updated: 10:00am PDT)

New Game Mode: Hide & Seek

With this update we're adding a new game mode, Hide and Seek. One player starts as a shark, and must hunt down the divers. When a diver is killed they join the shark side, and killing all divers secures a win for the sharks. But beware - diver players can defend themselves with their Bang Stick!

Hide and Seek is launching with five maps - including versions of Fractured and Galleon, as well as new maps Wreck and Station. We've also included a new community made Hide and Seek map from Gameo, called Mausoleum. You'll find Hide and Seek under the Private Match section of the Play menus.

New Map: Stash

Just off the coast of Cuba lies an abandoned and forgotten submarine base. With its roots tied to the cold war era and hints pointing to a nuclear involvement this relic is said to hold stashes of cached weapons that could bring a pretty price to the right buyers.

New S.T.E.V.E. Weapon Skin Pack

Alongside this update we're releasing the new S.T.E.V.E. Weapon Skin Pack, on sale for 20% off until July 12th, 2015! Fight with the style of the divers' robotic overlord S.T.E.V.E! The S.T.E.V.E. Weapon Skin pack adds new finishes for the SPP-1 Pistol, ADS Rifle, Sea Mine, and LJ-10 Volleyjet.

Note: Skins will not be available for use in-game until patch releases

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


  • Fixed bug where the sensor was awarding points to the diver when 'detecting' a stealthed Tiger shark.


  • Bot Match is now renamed to Private Match.
  • Fixed bug where the in game scoreboard was not correctly handling dead players.
  • Improved UI visuals when switching between diver gear skins and diver gear categories.


  • Added new map Stash.
  • Quarry's safes now award $1000 from $500.
  • Cove: First Safes up from $1000 to $1300
  • Cove: Last Safes down from $1000 to $700

  • Olmec: First Safes up from $1000 to $1100

  • Added Community label when loading Community made maps.
  • Added low quality shader mode for Hillside to improve performance for lower end computers.


  • Added Hide and Seek game mode.
  • Added S.T.E.V.E. diver weapon skin DLC.
  • Added Gold skins for Net Gun, Sensor and Spear Pistol which are awarded when you have a Depth Badge Level 1 from crafting cards.
  • Fixed bug where diver gear skins would sometimes not show correctly.
  • Optimized all of the diver gear materials to reduce their shader instruction count.


  • Updated to WWise SDK version 2014.1.1 which fixes some issues with some audio cards.


  • Players set to max level no longer receive Level 100 Crown.


  • Removed game dependency on .NET, also removed the .NET preinstaller.
  • Added 64-bit version of Depth.
  • Performed package maintenance to reduce the size of Depth overall.
  • Depth SDK is now the same content and tools that we use for development.
  • Dedicated servers can now specify more than six players and the game correctly selected the correct number of sharks and divers.

"mako" "polo" is this hinting at a mako polo game mode ?? :3 ;)

Impressive update, but have you considered reversing your most recent Megalodon mode update? It has potential, but few if any play it at all in it's current state.

You guys know of the texture bug right? Settings are on high but everything looks like it is on low. And when you get close to a texture it turns black.

There is a huge texture bug right now, Im uploading the video, happens in every map, both as diver and shark, and seems to happen to everyone, me and Simmy are experiencing it, maybe it's just us, maybe it's everyone.

Also in our stats profile Stash is listed as [map name] in the maps won section

Both of these are being fixed as we speak! STOP PLAYING BOT GAMES. :awkward: (Good catches guys, thanks for the reports!)

So Hide and Seek can only be played with bots?

Thanks for the update!
Quick question though: is it suppose to weight 6 Gbs? Seems a tad bit much compared to the previous ones. Or maybe it's because I started it mid-maintenance.
