Hey there Maneater players! The team at Tripwire and I have been absolutely astounded by the crazy amount of love you all have shown towards our game on Xbox! Which is why I’ve stopped by to share some good news.
In celebration of the sharkiest 7 days of the year, Maneater’s first piece of playable DL-Sea – The Tiger Shark Evolution – will be available for free to all current and future players. Once you’ve downloaded the DLC from the Xbox Store, head on over to the nearest grotto, open up that evolutions menu, and give your shark the hot-rod paint job she deserves! Sea life hasn’t looked this good since I tricked out my ’68 Plymouth Barracuda in Forza. You will also find that this particular evolution allows you to collect more nutrients from predators, prey, and nutrient caches, which will help you level up faster if you’re just starting out.
We’re incredibly thrilled that so many of you have taken the journey from pup to predator, and I can’t wait to share our future plans for the world of Maneater on Xbox One. I can’t share any details yet, but when I can you’ll be the first to know.
