With this unique approach to the action RPG genre, Tripwire Interactive looks forward to taking players to uncharted waters, where they will fight to survive in open ocean, swamps, and rivers with danger lurking at every depth, using their wits, jaws, and the uncanny ability to evolve as they feed.
