We're gonna need a bigger subscription base: Gamepa$s adds Jaws-inspired ARPG "Maneater"

The Xbox Game Pa$s catalog has expanded to include Maneater, a highly chaotic ARPG about disrupting the food chain in the bloodiest manner imaginable. This is the 13th title to reach Xbox Game Pa$s in February.

Developed by Roswell, Georgia-based Tripwire Interactive, Maneater stars a female bull shark on a quest to take revenge on a shark hunter who ki1led her mother and left herself disfigured while she was a wee pup. The game was released in 2020 to a decent response from players and critics alike, with many reviewers praising Maneater for its vast open world and addictive gameplay loop revolving around unlocking a wide variety of upgrades that help the bull shark get incrementally better at eating everything from people to boats.

Maneater has now been added to Microsoft's subscription library just three months shy of its four-year release anniversary. It joins a dozen other titles that have already reached Xbox Game Pa$s in February, and is already available across all tiers of the service as of the early morning hours ET on February 27. Its Xbox Game Pa$s debut coincides with a generous sale that currently allows Steam users to grab Maneater at $12.59, or 65% off. Speaking of Valve's storefront, this chaotic game currently has over 10,000 user recommendations to its name, thus being above Steam's "Very Positive" review threshold.

I always thought that was such a broad statement and untrue. I can see how Gamepa$s could he beneficial to games that didn't meet their sales goals when released initially, but find success from casual gamers once put on Gamepass. Or for indie developers who maybe wouldnt get the attention otheriwse. I also see how it'd hinder major releases. To say developers hate gamepa$s is too broad of a generalization. It has its benefits for sure.

This.

Low-budget, low sales projection game developers are going to love it. They get a guaranteed ROI.

Higher budget games with a little more hype and marketing are probably not a good fit because they'd need to ask for a higher licensing fee from MS, and if they take a low offer and end up being a hit, they're going to leave a lot of money on the table.

Devs don't universally love or despise gamepass, it's just one of many calculations that studio CEOs regarding their business strategy.

Microsoft's Xbox Game Pa$s service now has 34 million subscribers. That's up 36 percent from the 25 million Microsoft previously reported more than two years ago.

Damn CoD and Diablo dropping on there this year too. I wonder what that will do

They do use the same games and devs for those sales all the time. Sometimes it’s other games, but sh1t a$s CREED (all of them) and Watch Dogs are always on sale.

Gamepa$s does take away games and bring them back. Older games and games that didn’t sale well should be on gamepass. I think Marvel vs Capcom infinite maybe on gamepass, that is the perfect game for it. I don’t know if that Power Rangers fighting game is on gamepa$s or not, but that would work well.
