  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Greedfall
Maneater | PS5 Version Only

Maneater is an action role-playing game developed by Tripwire Interactive, released on May 22nd to 7th generation consoles. This version is PS5 exclusive, meaning that the game will not be available for download on PS4 consoles. The game has a 68% on Metacritic currently. In Sony’s words,

“Experience the ultimate power fantasy as the apex predator of the seas – a terrifying shark! Maneater is a single player, open world action RPG (ShaRkPG) where you are the shark. Starting as a small shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies – both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. Eat. Explore. Evolve.”

The game is available for $39.99 for PS5 on Walmart.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Square Enix’s 2018 action-adventure game follows main character Lara Croft as a tomb raider. This is a sequel to 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider, marking the 12th mainline entry in the video game series. Sporting a 77% on Metacritic, the game is described with

“Fight, explore, craft and survive amid the dense and perilous jungles of South America in Lara Croft’s biggest adventure to date as you race to save the world from a Maya apocalypse. Gather resources and master the unforgiving terrain. Outgunned and outnumbered, you need to use your surroundings to your advantage; strike from the shadows and use mud to camouflage your presence. Use advanced traversal techniques to reach long-forgotten tombs and negotiate deadly puzzles.”

The game retails on the PS Store for $14.99.
