Tripwire Interactive and Deep Silver have announced that Maneater will get a new life on next-generation consoles. Since the game has achieved an impressive amount of success, they’ll be porting it on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S. Naturally, Maneater is going to undergo some plastic surgery in order to be the belle of the ball once the new hardware launches.
I knew Maneater was doing well, but I didn’t know just how well. According to the developers, they have sold over one million copies worldwide, which is pretty impressive for a mid-range game. Naturally, since there’s clearly a lot of interest for the shark RPG, it has earned its next-gen upgrade. According to the press release, 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,” plus “increased graphical fidelity and frame rate” on Xbox Series S.
PC player will also get the next-gen update at some point in 2021. More details as they become available. The upgrades will launch on November 10th on Xbox, along with the console. Same goes for PlayStation 5 – November 12th in North America, Australia, and New Zealand and November 19th in Europe. Oh, and one bit of extra good news: those of you that already own Maneater on current-gen consoles will get the upgrade for free.
As it stands at the time of writing, Maneater is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games. There is also going to be a Steam version, but that has no set launch date yet.
