YES! Trailer For Monster Hunter: World Looks Magnificent And Big Advancements Are Coming

Monster Hunter debuted on September 21, 2004 and since then there have been 36 different titles and spin-offs have been released, which have resulted in an astounding 40 million units sold. And today we see the future of the franchise with the exciting trailer for Monster Hunter: World that promises lots of changes and advancements.

During Capcom’s E3 2017 press conference on Monday, they unveiled the next generation of Monster Hunter that may change the motherfucking game. Grab your gigantic sword because the next edition of the popular fantasy-themed action role-playing video game promises a “seamless gameplay experience allowing players to move freely across map areas that comprise the living ecosystem” and “a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system” for up to four players across regions. Translation: NO LOADING SCREENS!!!

Here’s more from Capcom:

Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing terrain.

Retaining the series’ skill based progression and robust crafting system, players gear up to venture on quests to seek and slay monsters, progressively improving their skills to become the ultimate hunter. Loot collected from fallen foes can be used to create new equipment and armor upgrades styled after the monsters they’ve slain, allowing hunters to survive the elements and defeat the tougher opponents that await them.

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.

With flexible online multiplayer options and an accessible quest structure, players can tackle challenges alone or join up to three other hunters online for cooperative play. For the first time in the Monster Hunter™ series, players from Japan and the west can play together online, providing an expanded base of cooperative hunting companions. With the new online drop-in functionality, solo players can hail for assistance from the worldwide group during quests when their opponents are too daunting to take on single-handedly.

This may very well be the Monster Hunter game you’ve always dreamed of. Monster Hunter: World is slated for release in early 2018 on PS4, and Xbox One, then later on PC.
