Genetically modified to thrive in shallower waters and given greater strength, this Goblin poses a real threat and is sure to strike fear in the hearts of divers.

Improving the New Player Experience
With this update we’ve focused on improving the new player experience in three key ways: improving matchmaking, introducing recommended builds, and reworking how players unlock gameplay content.
To address matchmaking for new players, we’ve made adjustments to improve the matching algorithm to reduce how often experienced and new players are matched with one another. Wait times may be slightly longer on average with this change, however we feel this better match quality will make Depth a more enjoyable experience for new and experienced players alike.
Recommended Builds are a new way for players to learn to play new species of sharks more effectively. All players will be able to switch to the full evolution view whenever they would like.
We believe that unlocks should be both rewarding and an enjoyable way to explore what Depth has to offer. With the new unlock system, players will complete small challenges to unlock Sharks and Diver Gear. Shark Evolutions and Weapon Upgrades are now all unlocked by default, and all veteran players will get to keep any content they had previously unlocked.
Front End Notifications – Stay Informed!
At the main menu, we’ve added a new area for displaying messages for improved communication about what is happening with Depth, such as update progress or server maintenance periods.
