If you've been enjoying this month's PS Plus title Maneater on PlayStation 5, then there's even more content on its way to keep your belly satisfied. During a Reddit AMA with developer Tripwire Interactive, it was confirmed that more DLC is planned for the shark RPG. Specific details weren't shared as art director Sean McBride remained fairly vague about the whole thing, but some sort of expansion is certainly on its way.
McBride said the following: "DLC has been confirmed! The team has been working on it for a while now. Hoping to share more information very soon." Short but certainly sweet for fans of Maneater. Elsewhere, he explains how the team discussed having a weather system for the game, but due to time constraints, it opted to focus on the time of day shifts instead. "Weather is one of those things I really wish we had the time to do properly."
What sort of DLC do you hope Maneater receives? A new area to explore, or maybe new sharks to play as? Post your requests in the comments below.
Tried it for about 20 mins and didn't like it.
The controls and camera really put me off. The combat seemed a bit stale as well but I did only play 20 mins.
Enjoyed my time with the base game. Platinumed it in one sitting. Although, I'm not sure I'd be willing to jump back in. Had to tap the R2 button so much I got worried it was going to fall off.
I played a bit of it over the weekend, didn't really like it, just felt really repetitive and controls were not too my liking. Glad it was free on plus as I had been tempted to buy it a few times.
Did a few areas on the map, but ultimately it's a very dull game with loads of repetitive objectives. Definitely has an audience out there, I'd imagine some people really enjoy it.
Cool. I would like yo try the poison build out
Played and Platinum’ed this over the weekend. Definitely wouldn’t have played it had it not been a free title, but I enjoyed it in places.
My R2 button didn’t enjoy it much though.
I think I liked the idea of this game more than the game itself.
Found this game extremely underwhelming. Deleted it after around 90 minutes. Controls and camera where tiresome and the environments extremely small. Tasks were limited and a lot of busywork. Won’t be looking out for DLC. Glad it came to plus though as I was thinking of buying it before that.
@KPraj You have to think of it as a flight/dogfighting game. Once you adjust the way you think the character should move, it clicks. It took me a bit, but enjoyed it and even platinumed it.
As reviews go, looking at the comment section here, Maneater ain't doing so well. Will still try it when I get my PS5. Glad I'm not playing it on the PS4 though, by the sounds of it. Those R2 buttons don't stand up to much at the best of times.
@MFTWrecks Yes I see where you are coming from, but i also don't play those type of games either.
Not to mention the R2 mashing (holding down R2 would've been much better). I also didn't think it was even that visually appealing. Maybe I'll like it if in give it more time, but I don't think I will tbh.
Literally playing this right now, I’m 3 hours in. I came into the comments to say how disappointed I was after all the good things I’d heard about it. Uninteresting and very repetitive. Looks like I’m not alone.
Still, ok for a “freebie”.
@KPraj I don't play them a lot, either. I'm just saying, due to the nature of being able to move in a 3D space (instead of a standard plane a human character would be able to move on in a typical third person game) it helps.
It's not a AAA stunner. No one argued otherwise. But it's a stupid fun B+ sorta game with a decent sense of humor. Its tongue is definitely stuck firmly in its cheek the entire time. I enjoyed it for the 15+ hours of mindless summer fun it offered.
@stu123 I think it’s a Bull Shark so you should be ok 🤪
Played about 2 hours of this and this I'm done. Very repetitive.
You enjoyed it for 15 hours and that's fine.
I just don't think I will get the same enjoyment and don't feel the need to test if I will. I tried, I didn't like, I give my thoughts, I move on.
It is a good pick up and play for a bit game. I don't think it as bad as the criticism it is getting. Yes R2 gets some use but doesn't it always.
I tried it. It was OK. Probably won't play much more than the hour I spent on it.
Got to try this game it’s been claimed on plus lol
Man-eater is a bad game, so definitely not looking forward to DLC.
Maybe they should've focused on weather instead of time of day shifts? The time of day shifts definitely made the game worse by making it harder to see at night. Weather shifts on the other hand, I doubt it would make the game fun, but would've had the possibility of not making the game worse.
I actually enjoyed it. Nothing spectacular, but it was good. Just got the platinum. For trophy hunters, this is an easy platinum.
Completed It last week on ps5 and loved it! I was only gonna try it and got addicted to it haha only took about 6 hours
Its a really fun game and a nice return to the says of AA games what were more about unique experiences rather then trying to nap all the GOTY awards. Would be kinda cool if the DLC can rewind the clock back to Dino times and have us an proper true Meg hunting Dinosaurs.
Glad to hear they are making DLC, now I will wait even longer before playing.
@KPraj Also fine. But you sorta talked ***** on its controls and I wanted to point out to people on the fence, that it can be enjoyed. It may just take a change to your approach.
It's not my problem if you miss out on fun stuff. Enjoy yourself out there.
I said "The controls and camera really put ME off." I offered my opinion on MY trial. You are now saying my opinion is wrong.
You said you got used to the controls, I never disputed that. I never said your opinion was wrong.
