Capcom has released two new trailers and a set of screenshots for Monster Hunter: World showcasing a new location called “Wildspire Waste” and the game cycle.
Wildspire Waste is described as “a massive, dry expanse with swamplands, this particular area of the New World sees creatures who inhabit the areas adapting to survive.” The trailer features more of the creatures you will come across on your monster hunting quests, including theKulu-Ya-Ku, a bird like creature that is often seen stealing other monsters’ eggs from the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. The giant Barroth is a returning Monster Hunter series favorite and can be found marking its territory with mud as it wanders in search of ants, its favorite snack. It will also charge anyone or anything that invades its territory.
The game cycle consists of four steps. The first step is to take on a quest. The second step is to hunt the monster. The third step is to collect the materials from the monster. And the fourth step is to upgrade your equipment.
Monster Hunter: World will be playable at the Sony Interactive Entertainment booth at Gamescom 2017 from August 22 to 26, as well as at PAX West 2017 from September 1 to 4, and Tokyo Game Show 2017 from September 21 to 24.
Monster Hunter: World is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2018. A PC release will follow later. In Japan, the game will only launch for PlayStation 4.
