Following its launch on current-gen consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store back in May, Tripwire Interactive and Deep Silver have announced that Maneater will be available on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 at launch.
Fully evolved for the next generation of console systems, Maneater will support Ray-Tracing, native 4K HDR at 60 FPS, and new lighting effects that will bring the underwater world of Maneater to life like only the next generation consoles can.Xbox Series S owners will also benefit from increased graphical fidelity and frame rate.
The PC version of Maneater will also be getting next-gen updates in early 2021 and more information on those enhancements will be coming in the next few months.
Players who currently own Maneater on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can also look forward to a free, full upgrade, so when their console evolves, Maneater will too.
"The Tripwire team has been overwhelmed by the great reception Maneater received since it launched earlier this year, and we can’t wait for players to experience the thrill of playing as a deadly shark in all of her powerful glory on next-gen consoles," said John Gibson, CEO of Tripwire Interactive. "With next-gen Maneater has never looked better with amazing ray traced water and smooth 4k 60FPS gameplay, but the adventures won’t stop there, as fans can expect even more exciting news about the future of Maneater soon."
While I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Maneater, I will say that it's insanely short. I was able to 100% the game within 7 hours or so, and with nothing left to do in the game, I deleted it from my hard drive months ago. It definitely serves as a fun distraction for a few days, but I'm really hoping Tripwire will release some DLC in the future.
Next-Gen upgrades for Maneater will be available at launch for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10th, 2020 - and for the PlayStation 5 on November 12th, 2020 (North America, Australia, and New Zealand) and November 19th, 2020 (Europe).
