You Get to Play as a Shark and Eat Everyone & Everything in this Game

Sharks have had a bad rep ever since Jaws, the classic monster film by Steven Spielberg, came out in 1975. The movie’s awesome, but if you say that it’s a good depiction of the animal to a wildlife expert, they might just feed you to one.

Wildlife expert Forrest Galante¬†said that “great white sharks have no interest in eating people,” and in cases where that happens, the animal is either provoked or it’s a case of misidentification because of dirty water.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun being a shark. Maneater is an open world ‘shaRkPG’ (RPG) where you get to play as a shark on a mission to eat, explore and evolve your way up to the top of the food chain.

The game’s trailer shows a bunch of crazy stuff you can do like emitting a shockwave, spinning in the air to avoid bullets from shark hunters and of course, biting and ripping s**t apart with those massive teeth.

Don’t expect any groundbreaking storyline in the game, but it does look super fun. With ocean pollution¬†rapidly destroying coral reefs and aquatic life the world over, whether you’re an animal lover or not, this might just be the revenge story-game that we all need.

Maneater will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox 1 and PC on 22 May 2020 and on a later date for Nintendo Switch.
