Following the dramatic conclusion in Maneater, the titular and evolved bull shark protagonist and journalist/narrator Trip Westhaven return in Maneater: Truth Quest, an all-new adventure that takes players to Plover 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. ​


“The long wait is finally over! Over a year ago we launched Maneater, and the community response has been fantastic,” said Sean McBride, Creative Director at Tripwire Interactive. “The team has been hard at work and Truth Quest is finally here! With it, we have tons of new challenges, an entirely new area to explore, lots and lots of new things to eat, and evolutions to unlock. Find out what Scaly Pete was referring to when the locals talked about 'Gub'ment Experiments' lurking the waters of Port Clovis. Bring a tin foil hat, because you are about to swim deep down the rabbit hole of conspiracy and military coverups. Trip Westhaven is going to blow this whole thing wide open!”


Maneater: Truth Quest Key Features Include: ​

The original Maneater is a single player, open-world action-RPG (ShARkPG) where YOU are the shark. Starting as a small bull shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this, you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies -- both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. This is fortunate, because to get revenge on the cruel fisherman that dismembered you will take evolving into a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.​

PSA:

XBox One

Xbox One players are seeing a message saying that the DLC is not available for their platform. We have worked with our partners to identify the cause and a fix is now being worked on. We hope to resolve this shortly with our partners and believe this to only be a store indicator issue.

As far as we are aware, if you purchase it, and the game is updated to the latest patch, you will be able to play, even if you see this message.
  • Please make sure the game has updated to the latest patch (there is no separate DLC to install, everything is included with the patch)
    • On Xbox One this will be update: 1.0.12.0
  • Always attempt to launch the base game - do not attempt to launch/install any DLC. If you purchased the DLC while in game, you may need to relaunch the game.
  • If you have a save file with the base Maneater story completed, you will see a new indicator for the Maneater Truth Quest Pilot to navigate to on the map and hud



All Platforms
We are investigating reports that some users are being asked to purchase the DLC after they have purchased it. We are gathering information about why this may be happening now and ask that players close down the game/platform and relaunch to see if that addresses the issue as a first step.


PlayStation Store
An issue where the DLC would not show as available for purchase on the PSN store has been fixed.

Purchased DLC on PS5 today via psn product page. Upgrade button from within game is broken, and game won’t recognize that it is already purchased. Seeing multiple reports of the same issue on Reddit. Upgrade button gets this “content not found ws-116129-0” error. Currently unable to enjoy the new content yet. 🤷‍♂️ 6ABA6CE1-E8DA-4472-A487-ACAB0CA306A0.jpeg

Working now tonight. Cheers to the quick resolution. 😊🖖
 
Purchased the game on PC via steam : I had completed the base game at 100 %
Sarted the DLC was doing the first tower mission and I died, the game crashed while it was sending me to the grotto.
Now whenever I launch the game and try to reload the game, I have an UE4 crash occuring.
file integrity on steam does nothing.

I'm having an issue on the second quest for the dlc. Got through the first quest no problem but I'm unable to start the "Chase Champion" quest at all. I've swam up and down the light beam nothing, restarted the game nothing, died to reset the world state nothing. Is this a known problem?
 
I completed the story of Maneater and I just bought the Truth Quest DLC, go to the Plover Island thingy and I cannot go in the Island, it says you need to upgrade to truth quest. I press upgrade and there was a screen showing the playstation 4 store and it had nothing in it. Is this a bug? Please fix it Tripwire, I really beg you because I LOVE the Truth Quest. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
 
Jesus Christ i'm literally about to hop off this forum to go into the DLC for the first time and I'm seeing other players getting ****-up errors already.
I said it before, this game needs the living bejeesuz played out of it by the team that makes it before making the players error finding guinea pigs like the base game.
I absolutely love this game. it's fresh, it's fun and just out there in the best way but it means little if it doesn't work as intended.
Goin' in now, wish me luck🤞
 
Played for 30mins, the game is still overheating my machine :mad:
I run way more demanding games on my system just fine so Maneater is just a little **** for this.
 
<< START UP ERROR MAYBE NOT A BIG PROBLEM >>
I'm on PC so not sure if it's valid on other consoles.

I'v been getting a message pop up when I start the game after I've bought the DLC saying something along the lines of "You don't have Truth Quest anymore" but if you have bought it and played it a bit this might just be a harmless (if annoying) error but it might be ok.

I've played a couple of sessions and this message pops up everytime I load it up with the option to spawn in Port Clovis.
If I click yes, I'll spawn in a grotto of the base game map, stripped of any DLC upgrades but there's the portal to get to the new area.
Once through, I'm able to re-access my new upgrades in the new grotto and it also saved all my previous progress so I can just continue on where I left off.

As of typing this I've been staying in the new area but I'm not sure what'll happen when I portal back to Port Clovis but I think it'll be fine if it's in the same game session and the error might only come when the game is closed and re-opened.

An annoying start-up error but if anyone else if getting the start-up message then I hope this helps ease them . . . . that is if it's as simple as my issue.
This of-course should be addressed in a patch/fix.
 
Yet another issue to look into.
I've gone into the game the last few times with the same "You no longer have the DLC. Spawn into Port Clovis?" and that's ok, the progress is still saved with the new organs and body set able to be accessed once I go back to the new area but now it's dropping levels.
I spawn in at level 30 but I eat 1 thing and it jumps me right back up to level 40.
I know now to just eat a fish as soon as I go back in to get back to 40 but should definitely be looked into unless this is only happening to me?
