So, when is the next hotfix going to be made available?!?! Or should we seek refunds from Sony? This has been way too long coming and far too long without communication or any updates!
 
Still loving the game per se minus the glaring bug issues so many players seem to suffer. If Tripwire won't solve the big issues shortly, though, I might regret pre-purchasing Maneater. I really liked the concept and previews I saw and therefore wanted to reward the developers with a full-price purchase, to encourage more off-the-beaten-path games like this one. The current situation might well throw me back into the "rather buy later at a heavily discounted price, once the inevitable bugs are ironed out" camp. Sucks to be late to the game, but at least it might be more playable at that point, if that's the kind of quality / bug control to be expected nowadays.

One small advice for the developers on here - there's nothing worse than letting your gamers hang waiting. Even if your bug fixing might take a while and that will make some people sad or angry, at least give us a worst case date when we can expect a fix. Most people will appreciate the gesture and even if the date is some time away, we can lean back and put the current disappointment over locked upgrades, missing achievements or melting consoles out of our mind, knowing that we will be able to get back into a working game in, I don't know, 6 weeks or so. Being in the unknown just makes things worse and unnecessarily scratches at your image. Which would be a pity - again, I love your game! I just wish it would work properly...
 
me too . if no news for update to unlock trophees of 100% of the zones. I will contact sony for a refund and I will file a complaint for defective product because more than a week and still no new update. it is abused
 
I am triggered when I see after 3 weeks in the patch changelog, we have only that fix for PC:
Fixed ESC button not being usable in Key Mapping or Video Settings

WTH! Key binding?! Seriously?
That was the top priority correction to do right away.

The PC version 3591124 of the game is still crashing. We have no news about it from CM or Devs.
Before fixing skins and quests issues, Tripwire! Please! Fix critical issues first.

So they released a patch that does not fix what needed to be fixed. Anyone else thinking they scammed us by releasing an incomplete game?

Yeah, i now wish i never brought the game, i was really enjoying it but now i've 100% everything weeks ago but didn't get the Shadow Tail unlocked or any of the final achievements needed.
You can't even get a refund on a broken game, it feels like this sort of thing happens alot now on new games.

Digital version on Epic Store is not related to all platforms issues.
There is a Unreal Engine crash on Epic digital version at the launch the game that still no appear on the patch schedule.

I pre ordered the game and I still can not play it because of that bug.
 
  • Haha
Reactions: KoldStrejke
Version 3611045 on Epic is still crashing at launch.

File check and launch: Crash
Reinstall the game: Crash too
 
So... any idea when we can expect the next fix? Most importantly the unlock fix? Couple of days... weeks... months down the road? 2020 at least? Would love to jump back into the water, but I will only do so once my missing unlocks are actually available.
 
I just bought this game today I had been playing for a good 3 hours I died at teen level 6 and it sent me all the way back to pup level 2, it's obviously the problem with the overwrite save on the Xbox One is preventing any new saves from being saved at all, I paid money for this game and have already spent 3 hours in it I want to be able to see if my progress so if you guys wouldn't mind fixing this issue like it says right here that you have that'd be great

I hope this don't happen on the Nintendo Switch Version. Also I'm wondering if this bug is effecting the Xbox S and X Series since those consoles are a lot newer.

We are still continuing to investigate why this happens to some players. We have an experimental fix that will be part of the new platform releases going out in the coming days, and if it proves successful, we will look at rolling it into the existing platforms.
