Tripwire Interactive just released a small Hotfix patch for their shark-sim RPG game, Maneater. The update will let you know if your game saves became corrupted. Developers also assured players that they are looking into the rare issue that caused save game files of some players to become unusable. The game’s overall optimization and stability are also improved upon.

The update made the third Pete encounter slightly more challenging, and you can’t grab humans from the underside of the boat anymore. Xbox players can now Pause the game by pressing the ‘HOME’ button, and in PC, Ansel will work after using fast travel.

The update is now live on PC and Xbox One, whereas the PlayStation 4 update will release soon. Complete patch notes are mentioned below.
