Monster Hunter Wilds supports cross-play across PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam when it launches in 2025 worldwide simultaneously

Capcom has released a new trailer for Monster Hunter Wilds at the Summer Games Fest 2024 event. It introduces the fearsome Balahara monster. Plus, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto confirmed live on stage that Monster Hunter Wilds will support cross-play across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam) when it launches in 2025 worldwide simultaneously.

In the new "The Hunter's Journey" trailer, the protagonist is running away rapidly from a pack of sandworm-like creatures alongside a companion. They make an effort to dodge their projectiles, but are quickly swept into a sand trap that funnels the main character and their companion underground.

Players must learn to fight Balahara when they play Monster Hunter Wilds sometime next year. Another new monster was teased near the end of the trailer that can fire lightning bolts from its mouth.

Watch the new trailer below, along with more information and screenshots.

The latest Monster Hunter Wilds trailer, “The Hunter’s Journey” gave Summer Game Fest livestream viewers a deeper look at the Hunter’s foray into the Forbidden Lands, including the colorful characters and a mysterious crescent-shaped mountain players will encounter as story moments seamlessly blend into gameplay. As the hunter delves deeper into unknown territory, local wildlife including the treacherous new Balahara Leviathan monster demonstrated how hunters must adapt and harness new techniques to coexist in the Windward Plains region’s volatile conditions. In the ferocious lightning storms that herald a change between the harsh dry season and abundant monsoon season, an even greater threat was glimpsed bolting behind the billowing sand clouds.
