Tripwire Interactive announced today that the recently teased Truth Quest DLC for 2020 Shark RPG, Maneater, will launch on 31 August 2021, allowing players to munch on more humans and marine life, while evolving to become the nastiest and deadliest shark alive. Check out the new trailer below:
Playing as the bull shark from the base game, players will go down a rabbit hole of dark secrets and conspiracies surrounding Port Clovis and the Naval Wildlife Organization (NWO).
“The original stories of animals growing bone like armor, emitting flesh-eating toxins, or using electricity as a weapon were simply just old fisherman’s tales. That is until conspiracy theorists everywhere pointed to the original Maneater as solid proof of a Government coverup. Trip Westhaven, driven to the brink of madness, fires up his ViewTube channel “Truth Quest”, to take his followers, the “Questers” into deep waters in an effort to uncover the dark secrets behind this whale of a tale.”
Maneater: Truth Quest will take players to a brand-new island off the coast of Port Clovis. It’ll feature new evolutions, challenges, wildlife, and more. If you’re interested in the DLC, a free pilot episode will be made available and will showcase some of the new objectives players can sink their teeth into. The pilot episode features approximately 10-15 minutes of gameplay and is intended to provide a small taste of what’s to come with the full version of Maneater: Truth Quest.
