Hello Questers!

Starring the titular and evolved bull shark protagonist and investigative journalist/narrator 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.

Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick and Morty, Archer), reprises his role as investigative journalist Trip Westhaven in today’s new Maneater: Truth Quest “Site P” trailer, further exploring the dark conspiracies players will uncover in their underwater journey.

Maneater: Truth Quest DLC takes players to a brand-new island off the coast of Port Clovis – and comes 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. Those interested in testing the water can also look forward to a free pilot episode, showcasing some of the new objectives players can sink their teeth into while uncovering the mysteries that lie below. This pilot episode features approximately 10-15 minutes of gameplay and is intended to provide a small taste of what’s to come with the full version of Maneater: Truth Quest.

New Evolutions
  • New Evolution Set
  • Maximum level cap increased to 40

"Maximum shark size increased" is no longer there...

Will our shark's growth be stunted at 9m forever? Cause one of the main hype for this DLC to me is the potential to be a bigger shark.
 
When buying truth quest, will we be able continue on from our previous save games? or will we have to make an entirely new save game?
 
I've got a question will the existing marine wildlife in the regions we have now grow? It would be nice if we could fight meg sized alligators that aren't bosses and meg sized mako and great white sharks.
 
Can you give more info on the new hunt creatures coming in this dlc aka predators that aren't bosses. I'm hoping there is some meg sized crocs,great whites etc.
 
Looks cool and really want the new Hammerhead body set but all that will fall on it's face if it's still riddled with technical issues.
Please play and debug the bejeesus out of this DLC so we (the consumers) don't serve as the guinea pigs to do it for you guys . . . again.
