Maneater celebrates Shark Week with free DLC

Tripwire Interactive have cast a free nugget of DLC into the ocean for Maneater players to devour.

Over the years, our fascination with these waterborne predators has led to a annual celebration known as Shark Week and now Maneater wants a bite of that exposure.


What better way to wave in this week-long run of Discovery Channel programming than by giving away some free content for the so-called ShARkPG?

Maneater is celebrating Shark Week with a free gift for all players. Both current and new Maneater players on all gaming platforms can grab the Tiger Shark Adaptation for free. Named after the legendary Tiger Shark, often referred to as “the garbage can of the sea,” this evolution provides extra nutrients when consuming prey in addition to providing a sharply striped cosmetic upgrade. The Tiger Shark Adaptation is now free for all players. To equip the Tiger Shark Adaptation, download the latest Maneater update, players can visit their nearest Grotto, and select the Tiger Shark Adaptation under Body Evolutions.

We reviewed Maneater when it first launched on PC and consoles back in May. The bizarre action RPG didn’t make a huge splash though proved quirky and inventive enough to snag a respectable 6/10. Here’s what we wrote:

“Maneater is a crazy concept come to life, Tripwire somehow managing to cobble together a silly ShaRkPG that is more than just a ten-minute novelty. There’s no denying it’s an exotic catch, but when it comes to quality open world action games, there’s plenty more fish in the sea.”
