Maneater Tiger Shark Skin Pre-Order

The Tiger Shark pre-order skin adaptation in Maneater is a bonus for those that have secured their copy early. However, it’s been causing a lot of issues. People that have pre-ordered the game digitally are not getting any kind of code for the Tiger Shard DLC in Maneater. Even players that have pre-ordered their physical copies from select retailers aren’t getting their codes as they’re supposed to. We’re gonna go into more detail in our Maneater Tiger Shark Skin Pre-Order guide.

Tiger Shark Skin Adaptation Pre-Order in Maneater

The Maneater Tiger Shark skin, or adaptation, is a pre-order bonus in the game. If you look at the image above, you can see that for yourself. That, in and off itself, is not the problem. The problem is that people that have pre-ordered the game digitally can’t find the Tiger Shark adaptation anywhere. Well, if you look at the picture again, you’ll see a little asterisk at the beginning. On the website, the asterisk points to this clarification: “Select retailers only. Also included in the Maneater Day One Edition at select retailers.”

So, yeah; if you’ve pre-ordered the game digitally (or via Amazon, apparently), no Tiger Shark skin for you. Worse still, people that have actually gotten their physical copy from Best Buy, or Gamespot, or where have you in the US are not getting their Tiger Shark codes. Everywhere else, people are getting their copies that say Day One Edition on the cover, and also mention that it includes DLC. In the US, not so much. Some sort of mix-up has happened there, and the only thing you can really do about it is start calling support and follow Maneater on Twitter for further updates.

The one kinda bright spot in this whole situation is that the devs have spoken about adding the Tiger Shark adaptation to the game for everyone at a later date. That’s not much solace for those that had their hearts set on having the skin from the get-go, I suppose. We’ll have to wait and see how things shake out, and how the developers will handle the issue.

    I have made several attempts with both best buy and the devs themselves and they’ve both proven to not care for this particular situation. The devs blame the retailers and basically say its not their problem its the stores. And best buy pretends it doesn’t exist.

    I ordered the Day One Edition. It came with a code, but code not working. I ordered it from another country, so it’s a “region 2” disc, thinking maybe that is why the code won’t work for me…?
