Publishers Tripwire Interactive and Deep Silver as well as developer Blindside Interactive have announced a next-generation port for Maneater.
The shark-simulator action game is getting a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X port at launch for each system in November. If you already own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’ll get a free upgrade to the next-gen version, for free.
The new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of Maneater will support native 4K HDR resolution with 60FPS performance, ray tracing, and new lighting effects to boot. The Windows PC version will get these visual updates in 2021, as a free update.
Maneater has been available for Windows PC (via the Epic Game Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version is planned as well. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review for the game here (we found it a very fresh and fun game, providing a unique experience but with some minor issues).
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Maneater is a single-player action RPG, set in the unforgiving waters of the Gulf Coast. Fight to survive in the open ocean, with danger lurking at every depth. Your only tools are your wits, your jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as you feed. Anything and everything is on the menu… kill or be killed.
- Become a MANEATER – Play as a giant Bull Shark and terrorize the coastal waterways. Tear swimmers and divers limb from limb, give the humans a reason to fear you.
- Explore a massive open world – Immerse yourself in a living, breathing world full of threats, and rewards. Explore sunken wrecks, lurk in swamps, or just cruise the open ocean looking for whales to feed on.
- Deep Stats and Role Playing – Role-play and customize your shark with a variety of stat driven systems. Evolve different parts of your body to improve how they function, or pump up your ferocity to enter brief feeding frenzies.
- Experienced Team – From the minds behind Depth and Killing Floor, our goal as an early access game is to push the feeling of playing as a shark to new heights, developing a strictly single-player experience that will challenge and engage the player from start to finish. Gritty, visceral, heart-pounding action games are our calling.
