Today, as in right this second, you can play Maneater on PC via Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and even the Nintendo Switch. Though the game was available on the PC before today, it was locked to the Epic Games Store. We reviewed the initial release of the game back in June 2020 if you want to check that out. We found the game to be pretty decent, but nothing super great.

The version available for Game Pass is for both the PC and Xbox. It will stick around for a period of six months starting from today.

In Maneater, you play as a shark. You need to grow big and strong to take on ever larger aquatic foes. You are also dealing with some pesky humans along the way. The game retails for $39.99 (USD) with a bonus 15% discount for the Steam version at launch.

Maneater is a single player, open-world action-RPG (ShARkPG) where YOU are the shark. Starting as a small bull 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, tailoring the shark to your play style. This is fortunate because getting revenge on the cruel fisherman that dismembered you will take evolving into a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.

Maneater Key Features Include:
  • Eat: Feed on humans, consume nutrients, and find rare shark loot to evolve past what nature intended.
  • Explore the Gulf: Explore seven large regions, including bayous of the gulf coast, resort beaches, industrial docks, the open ocean and more. Experience a living world with a full day/night cycle.
  • Evolve Into a Legend: Unlock and equip various Evolutions that improve and enhance your shark as you progress through the campaign.
  • Unique Story: Play through a full narrative, story-based campaign narrated by Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty, Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock) and set against the backdrop of a reality TV show.
  • Diverse, Compelling Combat: Battle fierce wildlife including other apex predators or fight against various types of human hunters ranging from town drunks all the way up to the Coast Guard.
  • Includes the Tiger Shark Evolution: The Tiger Shark is often called the 'garbage disposal of the sea.' Appropriately enough, this evolution allows you to digest nearly anything, increasing your ability to gain vital nutrients from all varieties of prey.
  • Includes Nintendo Switch™ Features: Maneater for the Nintendo Switch™ is the most portable version of the award-winning Action-RPG (aka shARkPG) to date! Playable in Docked, Tabletop, and Handheld mode, Maneater also supports Rumble and Vibration on the Switch Pro Controller and Joy Cons as well as the Nintendo Online Save Backup system.
