Capcom has posted a new 23-minute gameplay video for Monster Hunter: World, giving a lengthy look at a quest to slay a giant new monster, Anjanath, in a lush Ancient Forest. The video gives a voice-over tutorial on hunting strategy, camp preparation, and the like. Check out the video here:
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 favorites, Rathalos.
Players are able to utilize 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 will have a simultaneous worldwide release in early 2018. It will be released exclusively for PlayStation 4 in Japan, but North America and Europe will also get Xbox One and PC versions, the latter of which will be released at a later date.
In case you missed it, we chatted briefly with Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Director Yuya Tokuda back at E3 2017 about preparing this latest Monster Hunter game for a worldwide release. We also translated an interview with Japanese outlet Game Watch about several gameplay components.
