The open world single-player action takes place in the Gulf Coast waters where take on the role of an apex predator in the form of a giant shark. Players will fight to survive against the various dangers in the swamps, lakes, and ocean of the region. The only tools available are the player wits, their jaws, and the ability to evolve with every bite. Success can be found in the simple mantra of eat, grow, evolve.
With NVIDIA Ansel support players can capture high quality in-game screenshots from any position. The shots can be adjusted with post-process filters. HDR images are captured in high-fidelity formats and are shareable in 360 degrees with a mobile phone, PC, or VR headset.
