The Big Catch Update!
Tomorrow we will be reeling in The Big Catch, bringing lots of great new content for you all to sink your teeth into!

Check out the update site here for all the goodies: The Big Catch [LINK][]

Or read the text version below :dappershark:

New Game Mode: Megalodon Hunt
Megalodon Hunt is an all-new game mode for Depth. Five divers face off against the greatest and most ferocious shark conceivable - the powerful Megalodon. Megalodon Hunt is void of S.T.E.V.E. and instead of focusing on room-to-room combat concentrates on map-wide chaos. Divers scramble for treasure as the Megalodon puts up a relentless fight, however as divers get stronger the tables turn and the hunter becomes hunted.

New Map: Devil's Head
Devil's Head – A flourishing gold mine turned abandoned shark haven. With three floors of winding tunnels and large excavated rooms, Devil's Head focuses on indoor combat within its flooded halls. Vertical exploration is a huge part of Devil's Head - as S.T.E.V.E. and the divers wind deeper in the mine, the sharks come and go as they please using deserted elevator shafts and busting through aged wooden structures. Divers and Sharks alike will be sure to find themselves adapting and working together within this sunken quarry!

New Shark: Mako
The Mako may be the smallest of the trio, but don't let that trick you; he's fast as hell and twice as mean. With a sleek but fragile frame the Mako is built for speed and agility. With great finesse and carefully aimed attacks the Mako excels in one-on-one combat. Using his smaller frame to slip in and out of rooms, divers are sure to keep on their toes as he whisks their allies into the dark.

New Shark: Tiger
The Tiger is a real man eater, and his striped hide makes him hard to spot. With a solid build and powerful muscles, the Tiger is adaptable to a wide variety of strategies ranging from hit-and-run to all out aggression. Putting his bulky framework to use means the Tiger is more than capable of taking a few bullets before making a lively escape.

Rebalanced Great White
The Great White is as large as he is dangerous. With the introduction of shark classes we've reworked the Great White into a close quarters powerhouse taking full advantage of his enormous size. Being both slow moving and hard hitting the Great White will continue his onslaught as bullets and spears sail his way.

New Gear: Shark Shield
Sharks are darn good at sensing but why let them! Utilizing a wide range of electro-magnetic frequencies the Shark Shield will disrupt the senses of any shark as long as it's powered on and make any diver inside its effective area undetectable. However with portability comes fragility, any shark that gives it a good ram should send it flying away in pieces.

Depth Ed
We'll be reeling in DepthED with the Big Catch Update for those of you looking to dive deeper into Depth. This is a full suite of editing tools that allows players to create their own maps and mods for the game. If you'd like to know more and talk about the Depth Editor join us on our Steam Forums – Mapping and Modding subforum. We can't wait to sink our teeth into what you guys release.

New Achievements
We've added nine new achievements to the Blood & Gold game mode and four new achievements for the Megalodon Hunt game mode.

Excellent job adding in this update, Depth Devs. I remember this being the original purposed gameplay model a few years ago when the game was back in development- It's great to see it revived in all its glory. I just hope it brings in a large number of new players!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOH...that's good

Wow great choices on the sharks. I wonder what we could get next. Perhaps oceanic whitetips? Maybe a new map that is shallow like rivers or lakes where Bull sharks and alligators could be a problem. Also would it be possible to make Meg an upgrade? Like how the divers get better weapons the shark could transform to Meg for a short duration if he gets strong enough. Just a thought.

This is exactly what the game needed to rejuvenate itself.

Likes and dislikes. Not a fan of the New gear. Divers get OP as is. But can't wait to try the Megaladon stuff. I love abugaj's idea for it being an upgrade.
Thanks for the additions though. New sharks and a new zone! Thanks.
