Maneater, a shark RPG where you play as the apex predator of the seas, that has been teased for about two years now is finally launched. It is available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here’s a gist of what the game is about:
“Maneater is a single player, open-world action-RPG (ShARkPG) where YOU are the shark. Starting as a small bull shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this, you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies – both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. This is fortunate, because to get revenge on the cruel fisherman that dismembered you will take evolving into a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.”
I guess you could say Maneater is a shark simulator. The fact that it is a single-player game really bodes well with an introvert like yours truly and the open-world just makes introvert exploration even more beautiful. The mayhem unleash by the shark you only serves to sweeten the adventure.
Key features of Maneater:
- Eat: Feed on humans, consume nutrients, and find rare shark loot to evolve past what nature intended.
- Explore the Gulf: Explore seven large regions, including bayous of the gulf coast, resort beaches, industrial docks, the open ocean and more. Experience a living world with a full day/night cycle.
- Evolve Into a Legend: Unlock and equip various Evolutions that improve and enhance your shark as you progress through the campaign.
- Unique Story: Play through a full narrative, story-based campaign narrated by Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty, Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock) and set against the backdrop of a reality TV show.
