The Epic Games Store revealed its latest mystery freebie today in the form of Maneater, an open-world action RPG (or, more cleverly, “”ShaRkPG”) developed by Tripwire Interactive that puts players into the fins of a terrifying female bull shark who must evolve and survive by eating all sorts of things (e.g., humans, reptiles, fishes) and growing strong enough to defeat other apex predators. Maneater costs $39.99 but is available at no cost until next Thursday, June 16, at 11:00 a.m. (EST). A warning on the game’s listing can confirm that it incorporates DRM in the form of Denuvo Anti-Tamper. Tripwire Interactive is the same developer behind the Rising Storm, Red Orchestra, and Killing Floor games.

Starting as a small 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 become a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.

  1. Sounds cool, but I couldn't get into it.... swimming around eating things gets old kinda quick. Also I could never seem to get past the first challenge where you have to eat XYZ number of license plates. Some of which are not in the water.

    So... meh. It's free, give it a shot I guess.
