Ready for a ShARkPG? Maneater is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC – and today Deep Silver have confirmed the exact release date.
Created by Tripwire Interactive as they partner up with Deep Silver, Maneater will see Xbox One, PS4 and PC (Epic Games Store) players given the opportunity to explore the oceans as a shark come May 22nd 2020.
The worlds first ShARkPG, Maneater will be taking a chunk out of both digital and physical stores come May 2020, as the action-RPG enters uncharted waters in the hope of delivering ultimate power and the chance to become the apex predator of the seas.
A solo experience, in Maneater you’ll find yourself fighting to survive, initially playing out proceedings as a baby bull shark. But as you grow in power, and as you explore a range of underwater environments, from swamps and rivers to beachside resorts and the deep blue sea, those initial baby steps will be a long forgotten past, all as you begin to utilise the tools at your disposal – your wits, your jaws, and the ability to evolve as you feed. Yep, in Maneater you’ll be looking to eat, explore, and evolve – until you become the ultimate killing machine.
With the exclusive debut trailer for Maneater featured on the Game Awards 2019 show – you know, the place where the stunning Xbox Series X was unveiled – with narration by actor Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick and Morty, Archer, 30 Rock) – the hype surrounding this truly unique premise is a real one. And chances are once you watch the trailer again, that hype will raise even more.
“We continue to be blown away by the interest and excitement fans have for Maneater,” said John Gibson, CEO and Co-owner of Tripwire Interactive. “Today we’re happy to announce this unique ShARkPG experience is coming to all major console platforms, and we’re excited to be partnering with Deep Silver to land this big shark on consoles worldwide!”
“We are delighted to re-new our partnership with Tripwire Interactive and to team up for the upcoming launch of Maneater. Our teams around the globe who successfully released Killing Floor 2 are eager to support the game with all our distribution and marketing experience,” states Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Koch Media GmbH, parent company of Deep Silver, Inc.
“How could we not partner with Tripwire Interactive for the world’s first ShaRkPG,” said Geoff Mulligan, COO of Deep Silver, Inc. “Maneater hooked us immediately and we are excited to support the marketing and distribution of this jaw-some title.”
Tripwire Interactive and Deep Silver are also excited to announce the Tiger Shark Adaptation for players who pre-order the game with participating retail partners. Like the tiger shark, often called the “Garbage Can of the Ocean,” this evolution allows players to digest nearly anything, increasing your ability to gain vital nutrients from your prey.
