Over the weekend Capcom finally launched their highly anticipated Monster Hunter World video game making it available to play on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. PC gamers waiting to get their hands on the new action role-playing video game will unfortunately need to wait until Q3 or even possible Q4 2018. Monster Hunter World offers both single player and multiplayer modes, in the form of an online four player cooperative mode, although there is no local online multiplayer available.
Monster Hunter World has been designed to offer an open world environment, removing the individual zones that were used in previous editions. But as before the new game is played from a third-person perspective and follows the storyline theme set by previous games. Offering gamers the ability to take on the role of a hunter who travels to an unpopulated “New World” full of monsters, that need to be captured for the Research Commission to be studied from their central command base of Astera. Check out the launch trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the new console game which will also be later available on the PC towards the end of 2018.
For the new Monster Hunter game Capcom has created a living ecosystem within which monsters react to the presence of other monsters, allowing players to exploit these new mechanics to make monsters fight each other and make them weaker before capture. When not in combat players have the ability to quick travel to the regions base camps. Offering safe areas that players can re-equip and upgrade before once again heading out into the wilderness to capture a new monster.
