Step Inside the World of a Monster Hunter

Posted on 06 Jul 2017

Capcom are thrilled today to share with us their exciting new trailer that showcases more awesome gameplay from the upcoming (and first time on PC) release of Monster Hunter: World. We see the player on a quest to take down Anjanath; the biggest, baddest, giant monster that’s inhabiting the lush and dangerous Ancient Forest. This 22 minute long gameplay trailer does an excellent job at showcasing what Monster Hunter: World has to offer, and I for one am incredibly exciting to get my sweaty palms all over this once it releases sometimes early 2018.

Official Press Release

Step inside Monster Hunter: World in the brand new gameplay video!

We’ve just released a brand new gameplay video for Monster Hunter: World. The video takes a deeper look at how one of the upcoming title’s quests unfolds as players set off on their journey to defeat the giant new monster, Anjanath, in the lush and leafy paradise of the Ancient Forest.

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 video you can see some of the creatures you can expect to come across within the New World, the newly discovered continent where Monster Hunter: World is set, including the Great Jagras which has the ability to swallow its prey whole and one of the Monster Hunter series favourites, Rathalos.

Players are able to utilise survival tools such as the slinger and Scoutfly to aid them in their hunt. By using these skills to their advantage hunters can lure monsters into traps and even pit them against each other in an epic fierce battle. Can our hunter successfully survive the fight and slay the Anjanath? He’ll need to select his weapon choice carefully from 14 different weapon classes and think strategically about how to take the giant foe down. Don’t forget to pack the camouflaging ghillie suit!

Monster Hunter: World comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Early 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date. If you’re coming to GamesCom then come and see us to experience the hunt for the first time yourselves!
