Publisher and developer Tripwire Interactive has announced first details for Maneater downloadable content “Truth Quest,” which will launch this summer for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $14.99 / €14.99 / £12.99.
“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 Tripwire Interactive creative director Sean McBride in a press release. “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.”
Here is an overview of the downloadable content, via Tripwire Interactive:
Maneater: Truth Quest continues where the story left off following the thrilling conclusion in Maneater, the original award-winning action RPG (shARkPG) where you play as a shark.
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 to 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.
With two new episodes and an entirely new region, the Maneater: Truth Quest downloadable content 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:
