Publisher and developer Tripwire Interactive is pleased to announce a partnership with Koch Media / Deep Silver to Maneaterthe highly anticipated action RPG where you are a shark (also known as ShARkPG), to all major consoles. Maneater will release on May 22, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via the Epic Games Store), with plans to bring the game to Nintendo Switch later in 2020. Maneater invites players to experience the ultimate power fantasy as the apex predator of the sea.
In this single-player action RPG, players must fight to survive as a baby bull shark. After being ripped from your mother’s womb, you must grow stronger and stronger as you explore a wide variety of underwater environments, from swamps and rivers to beach resorts and the deep blue ocean. Your only tools are your mind, your jaws and the uncanny ability to evolve by eating. Eat, explore and evolve into the ultimate killing machine in Maneater!
“We continue to be impressed with the interest and enthusiasm that fans have shown for Maneater,” said John Gibson, CEO and co-owner of Tripwire Interactive. “Today we are pleased to announce that this unique ShARkPG experience is coming to all major consoles, and we are thrilled to partner with Koch Media to bring this great shark to consoles worldwide!”
“We are pleased to renew our partnership with Tripwire Interactive for the upcoming launch of Maneater. After our global teams successfully launched Killing Floor 2, we will leverage all of our distribution and marketing experience to support this new game,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Koch Media GmbH.
Tripwire Interactive and Deep Silver also announce the Tiger Shark Adaptation. This is part of the Day One Edition that will be available for pre-order at a limited number of stores.
