Shark RPG Maneater Goes Even Deeper in Upcoming Truth Quest DLC

After weeks of cryptic social media teasing, shark RPG Maneater is breaching the surface at last with the reveal of its new DLC: Truth Quest, which is planned for this summer.

In the new trailer above, we get a story-driven context for the coming DLC: investigative journalist Trip Westhaven (reprised by Chris Parnell) is back, and is once again working to uncover the secrets of Port Clovis, including a government conspiracy about what’s happening to the marine life in the area, and why there seems to be a coverup about it.

The trailer doesn’t show much in the way of actual gameplay, but in an announcement from developer Tripwire we learned a bit more about what to expect in Truth Quest as we once again dive into the fins of the heroine shark. There’s a new evolution set of organs, the maximum level cap is being raised to 40, and yes, the shark can get even bigger now.

We’ll also see new objective types like time trials and destroying new target objectives. New wildlife will also appear, including a new “Uber” apex predator to fight, and new military forces will appear as a part of the bounty hunter system, sending helicopters and land forces after the shark — and five new boss bounties will accompany this.

Maneater launched last year, and at the time we found it lacked the depth we wanted, though playing as “mutant Jaws on steroids” was extremely fun.
