Capcom has released new information and screenshots of Monster Hunter: World introducing house pets, the Health Mantle, and the Palico Tool.
Get the details below.
In the New World where the game is set, various creatures exist in the environment, and the creatures you capture can be released in your House. Depending on the type of House (grade), the amount and variety of environmental creatures you can place will change.
“Special Equipment” possess outstanding effects, and can manifest those special effects when used as items. Since they can only be reused after a cooldown period, they must be used with caution.
—The Rocksteady Mantle
The “Health Mantle” special equipment absorbs a fixed amount of damage. If the amount of damage it can absorb is exceeded, the effect ends. The amount of damage it can absorb is approximately equal to one bar of the player’s health gauge.
Palico Tool: “Cheer Instrument”
A Palico Tool that uses musical instruments to play various sounds. Depending on the sound, effects such as increased attack power and additional resistance manifest. The higher your proficiency, the more sounds you will be able to play.
Each Palico Tool has a proficiency, which gradually rises each time it is put to use. As proficiency rises, the effects that manifest when using the tool will also enhance.
Monster Hunter: World is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018. A PC version will be released at a later date. In Japan, Monster Hunter: World will only be available for PlayStation 4. A PlayStation 4-only beta will run from December 9 to 12.
