Following the initial announcement at The Game Awards show in Los Angeles. Tripwire Interactive has shared further details on its strategic partnership with Epic Games to bring Maneater, the highly anticipated action-RPG where you play as a shark, to PC in 2019 via the newly revealed Epic Games store.
The game will debut on the Epic Games store and release on other PC platforms 12 months later.
The single player action-RPG will now be developed in-house by Tripwire Interactive in collaboration with creative leads at Blindside Interactive. Tripwire Interactive has high expectations for Maneater and its potential to lead the popular action-RPG genre into uncharted waters, and will be devoting extra resources to assist with development.
"Set in the unforgiving waters of the southern US Gulf Coast, Maneater finds players fighting to survive in rivers and streams as well as the open ocean, with danger lurking at every depth."
Your only tools are their wits, their jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as you feed. Anything and everything is on the menu... kill or be killed. In this tale of revenge, players can take on the role of an ever-evolving shark and terrorize the coastal waterways, tearing swimmers and divers limb from limb, giving the humans a reason to fear what lies below. Immersed in a living, breathing world full of threats and rewards, players will have a vast world to explore sunken wrecks, lurk in swamps, or cruise the open ocean looking for their next unsuspecting meal. As your shark evolves customize your maneater to fit YOUR play style. Eat, Grow, Evolve.
