Impact Labs is a group of rogue scientists led by former Aquatekk Industries researcher Dr. Larson. The lab is well known for taking on any project – given the right price. Recently they’ve picked up a contract of questionable ethics, that aims to identify a species of shark to transform into the ultimate man eater. Two sharks have been identified with the best potential for the project; the Goblin and Oceanic Whitetip. Sides have formed in the lab, and its up to you to help prove which species is the best! Will you fight on the side of the Goblin Shark, the living fossil with a menacing extendable jaw? Or will you fight on the side of the Oceanic Whitetip Shark, a shark known for its dangerous and aggressive behavior toward shipwrecked crews? Choose which side you fight for in the main menu and as you complete matchmade games of Depth your score will earn points for your selected side! The side with the most votes at the end of the event will be chosen as the next shark species added to Depth!
Shark Fight – Treasure
Depth’s first event treasure has come ashore! Complete games of Depth during the Shark Fight event to earn Shark Fight Event Treasures! Featuring a variety of new designs for sharks and divers alike, you’ll want to be sure to keep an eye out for creations from Impact Labs such as Stitches the Bull Shark, and their heavily modified Harpoon! The Shark Fight Event Treasure will also be available for purchase on the Depth Item Store for the duration of Shark Fight. Event treasures and items gained from Shark Fight will be tradeable and marketable at the conclusion of the event.
Shark Fight – Commemorative Coin
To commemorate Shark Fight we’ve released another leveling event commemorative coin! Similar to previous events you level your coin by earning score in completed matchmade games of Depth, but only before Shark Fight ends!
Item Crafting – A new way to recycle!
Impact Labs has setup an interesting way to recycle the old into the new! Their lab is available for use in crafting new items now in the Store’s Crafting area in the main menu, and will even be sticking around after Shark Fight ends. So if at any time you find yourself with items that you don’t need anymore, give crafting a whirl and who knows what will come out!
Introducing the Social Bar
With Shark Fight we’ve change how lobbies and the friends panel are presented while still delivering the same functionality as before by condensing them into a new area called the Social Bar. This has opened valuable space along the right side of the main menu which we will continue to tweak in the future.
