What Is the hook (Maneater)?
A single player ShaRkPG! But what does that mean? You, the player, are a shark (hooked yet?)!

Starting off as a shark pup, you are put forth into an aquatic world based around the gulf coast of the southern United States. Your mission is to eat, grow, and evolve as you explore this world and hunt down the man who killed your mother in an epic aquatic RPG adventure.

Decide if you are a stealthy predator, or perhaps the biggest apex predator in the Gulf of Mexico. Eat, Grow and Evolve to your playstyle! But be careful, as your wreck more destruction along the coast, foes will appear to sink your ambition of revenge.

Where and when can I book my vacation and dive in (play Maneater)?

Does my pre-order come with the Tiger Shark skin?
The tiger shark skin is available at select physical retail stores only at this time. It will be mentioned on the store page if it is included at that store.

Who is steering this ship (working on the game)?

It has now been acquired wholly by Tripwire Interactive and is being developed by an in-house Tripwire team with support from Blindside and other partners.
