Developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive is proud to announce that over 5 million players have dared to enter the deep waters of Maneater, the award-winning Action-RPG where you play as a shark (aka shARkPG). Snice its initial launch in May of 2020 and the subsequent release of the Maneater: Truth Quest downloadable content (DLC) in August of 2021, millions of players from around the globe and across all platforms have eaten, explored and evolved as the apex predator of the sea. To celebrate this fin-tastic milestone, Tripwire Interactive is launching a free Ray Tracing update today. Built from the ground up for Xbox Series X and PlayStation®5 systems, today’s Maneater update brings the Gulf Coast to life by enhancing the realism and appearance of real-time reflections on the surface of water as well as the refractions above when looking up from below. The improvements to the visual fidelity of light reflections and refractions off the waters of Maneater are best seen via screenshots here.

In addition to adding Ray Tracing support for Xbox Series X and PlayStation®5, today’s Maneater update also delivers a wide array of quality-of-life and optimization improvements designed to improve stability and performance across all platforms, including PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S console systems.
