Sony reportedly automatically reimburses players who have purchased Maneater in the past month.
Yesterday Sony revealed PS Plus games for January 2021 including Maneater, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and GreedFall. Now, apparently in anticipation of refund requests, the company automatically reimburses players who have recently purchased the open world Shark-life RPG.
“Bought Maneater last month. Hit the PS5 to notice that they refund me,” u / BraeWhyit announced on Reddit, and said that the confirmation said: “As a PlayStation Plus subscriber, we will refund the purchase price of this product to your PlayStation Store wallet, as this is a PlayStation Plus monthly game. This will not affect your ability to play the game as we have not removed the game from your library “.

BraeWhyit – which has a US account and has had its claims substantiated by other players on the thread – added that they “got to keep the original license as I have access to both PS4 and PS5 versions atm”, so “if I quit plus I do not lose the game “.
According to other commentators, the refund will be credited to the players’ PSN wallet, but perhaps because it is still the holiday season, not everyone has received the payment yet.
It seems that the offer has not been extended to players who have recently bought the other two games that were offered in January, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and GreedFall, although it is possibly because they are for PS4.
Maneater is a single-player, open world RPG with a difference – you start as a baby shark. We walk Maneater 4 stars out of 5 in the GamesRadar + review, saying: “This is not a worthy exploration of human cruelty to the natural world, and I suspect marine biologists would have a say in much of science, but it is the perfect distraction from a world that has become “Crazy and strangely therapeutic. When you do not fill the water with blood or shoot an innocent person into the air with a flick of the tail, the water is a pretty playground, and there is always evil to be done in resorts, water parks and marinas.”
