The next-gen enhancements will be coming to the game’s PC version next year.
Blindside Interactive and Tripwire Interactive released their open world action RPG (or ShaRkPG, as they like to call it) Maneater earlier this year, being generally met with solid reception from critics and audiences alike. Now they’ve announced that the game will be receiving an upgraded next-gen release, and that it will be available for Xbox Series X / S and PS5 at their respective launches on November 10 and November 12 respectively.
On PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, Maneater will feature 4K support (presumably that won’t be available on the Series S), ray-tracing support, new lighting effects, and improved performance at 60 frames per second. You can also expect all of these improvements to come to the game’s PC version some time in 2021 via a free update.
Additionally, it’s also been confirmed that if you have Maneater on PS4 or Xbox One, you will be able to upgrade to the game’s PS5 or Xbox Series X / S version (respectively) for free.
“The Tripwire team has been overwhelmed by the great reception Maneater received since it launched earlier this year, and we can’t wait for players to experience the thrill of playing as a deadly shark in all of her powerful glory on next-gen consoles,” said Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson. “With next-gen Maneater has never looked better with amazing ray traced water and smooth 4k 60 frames per second gameplay, but the adventures won’t stop there, as fans can expect even more exciting news about the future of Maneater soon.”
Maneater is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A Nintendo Switch version is also in the works, but has no set release date. You can read our review of the game through here.
