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.
