This Maneater Game Is Not About The Ladies

When you think of a Maneater game you would think it could be something to do with Nelly Furtado totally destroying every man in her path, but instead this Maneater game by Tripwire is entirely different. While the E3 2019 PC Game Show trailer had a slow start, it was soon revealed that this game is anything but a peaceful holiday to a sunny beach.

Tripwire Interactive is known for its PC hit Killing Floor and its sequel, but it seems they decided to head in a new direction with this game, with what is basically a 3D version of the wildly succesful mobile game Hungry Shark!

Check out the official Maneater game announcement trailer below:


Maneater is an open world single player Action RPG, developed by Tripwire Interactive. Set in the unforgiving waters of the southern US Gulf Coast, players will fight to survive in rivers and streams as well as the open ocean, with danger lurking at every depth. Their only tools are their wits, their jaws, and an uncanny ability to evolve as they 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.

Maneater is currrently expected to launch on Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store later this year, however we wouldn’t be surprised if a console adaptation is in the works, as well as a possible launch on Google Stadia. Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for all the latest on the Maneater game.
