In a rather surprising turn of events, Sony announced a new Monster Hunter game during their E3 2017 press conference. The reason why this is surprising is because the main Monter Hunter series has been associated with handheld consoles for several years now. That’s no longer the case it seems because the newly announced Monster Hunter: Worlds will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and even PC. Another interesting thing to note is that unlike its predecessors, this newest installment will launch simultaneously in all regions. In fact, this is the first Monster Hunter to launch in this manner.
The latest installment in the highly popular Japanese series is said to feature an open world, a drop-in multiplayer co-op mode, and of course, lots of new monsters to slay. Players can try to tackle the beasts either alone or together with up to three other players. And for the first time ever, Monster Hunter: World will feature cross-play between Japan and the west. Thanks to the improved crafting system, beautiful environments, and stunning visuals, World may very well end up being the best Monster Hunter game to date. Or, at the very least, the most impressive looking one.
“Monster Hunter: World delivers a seamless gameplay experience allowing players to move freely across map areas that comprise the living ecosystems and dynamically transition from day to night. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role in each quest as players strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to their advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present. Hunters must use their cunning and abilities to track and maneuver their targets throughout the intense, evolving battles.”
Monster Hunter: World is scheduled to launch early next year for PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC release to follow at a later date.
