Ahead of GamesCom we’ve released a brand new video that showcases some of the action you can look forward to seeing in Monster Hunter: World as well as taking a first look at a brand new location, Wildspire Waste. A massive, dry expanse with swamplands, this particular area of the New World sees creatures who inhabit the areas adapting to survive.
Start your adventure early and take a sneak peek at what to expect when the game launches next year.
Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter that completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a lively living and breathing eco-system full of predators…. and prey. In the new video you can see some more of the creatures you can expect to come across upon adventuring on your quest. These magnificent beasts include the likes of the Kulu-Ya-Ku, a bird like creature that is often seen stealing other monsters’ eggs from the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. The giant Barroth is a returning Monster Hunter series favourite and can be found marking its territory with mud as it wanders in search of its favourite snack – ants. Don’t be fooled by its taste for smaller meals though, this creature will charge anyone or anything that invades its territory and only the bravest of hunters can take on the challenge to bring it down.
For those willing hunters attending GamesCom next week, don’t forget to check out the title on the Sony Consumer Booth in Hall 7 and get ready for your first quest to the New World! North American hunters will get their chance to play the game at PAX West in Seattle.
Monster Hunter: World comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Early 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date.
