Starring the titular and evolved bull shark protagonist – and Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick and Morty, Archer), reprising his role as investigative journalist Trip Westhaven, Maneater: Truth Quest will take players down the rabbit hole of dark secrets and conspiracies surrounding Port Clovis and the Naval Wildlife Organization (NWO). The original stories of animals growing bone like armor, emitting flesh-eating toxins, or using electricity as a weapon were simply just old fisherman's tales. That is until conspiracy theorists everywhere pointed to the original Maneater as solid proof of a Government coverup. Trip Westhaven, driven the brink of madness, fires up his ViewTube channel “Truth Quest”, to take his followers, the “Questers” into deep waters in an effort to uncover the dark secrets behind this whale of a tale.

“The team has been hard at work on Maneater: Truth Quest and we’re excited to announce the first details on the downloadable content that so many fans have been asking for.", said Sean McBride, Creative Director at Tripwire Interactive. "We’re aiming to give players more of what they loved from the original Maneater, with the ability to grow bigger, explore an entirely new region off the coast of Port Clovis, and evolve further tools of destruction. Inspired by Scaly Pete's father's tales of 'Gub'ment Experiments', we pick up where we left off and join Trip Westhaven and the shark's journey down the rabbit hole of conspiracy and military cover ups as you eat, explore and evolve through these uncharted waters."

With two new episodes and an entirely new region, the Maneater: Truth Quest DLC is packed with new evolutions, challenges, wildlife, and more! Players will once again take control of the apex predator of the sea to Eat, Explore and Evolve their way to the top of the food chain. A small taste of new features and content include:
  • New Evolution Set
    • Maximum level cap increased to 40
    • Five new organ evolutions with one additional organ slot unlocked at level 40
    • Maximum shark size increased
  • New Wildlife
    • New “Uber” Apex Predator
    • New evolved hunt creatures
    • New Military Forces for Bounty Hunter System
    • Military land forces will launch attacks from beaches and fortifications
    • Helicopters will hunt by air
    • Five new Bounty Bosses
    • New weapons and vehicles for military Bounty Hunters
  • New Objective Types
    • Failure to Communicate: Tail-whip objects to destroy the target objective
    • Time Trial: Swim through the rings before time runs out!

The Maneater: Truth Quest DLC will require the base game, Maneater, to play -- and will be available for $14.99 / €14.99 / £12.99 MSRP with an ESRB rating of M for Mature, PEGI 18 rating, and USK 16 rating.
 
I do have a question about the map style of the DLC.
Is it a completely, self-contained campaign with the maps that will be started up with a new menu option or will there be some more integrated approach.
My worry is that we'll have some really cool new maps but they'll be self-contained away from the areas we already have, I'm hoping once we download the DLC there'll be a map marker to bust open a new grate to swim through to the new areas. That way, the maps both new and old will all connect.

How will this be done?

Also with the size increase, we'll pretty much be floundering about in the Bayou as half the time I'm knifing above the water because it's a shallower area meant for the whole pup-teen stages.
 
Any Idea when the Save bugs will be fixed? Just lost 2 organ upgrades completely, but I cannot get them back, cause the fights that give them as rewards are listed as done. it is fruustrating, really... and sad, cause I like this game a lot.
 
Enormous amounts of silence from Tripwire when it comes to Maneater, is everything still progressing okay? Kinda growing worried about Maneater's Fate considering there haven't been any updates as of late. Any response would be much appreciated!
