That Monster Hunter World Though
Okay, so last night I went to the Sony experience thinking the reveal of Monster Hunter World was an exclusive title. I was just excited and shut my mind out of all of its glory. I am a glaive user in the 3Ds version and having to farm all those hours hunting, carving and burning of meats. It was an awesome adventure to be had. Now that I have all the information I am even more excited to learn that Monster Hunter is coming to Xbox One and PC as well. Let’s take a gander at that trailer.
- Welcome to the new World: Taking on the role of a hunter, players are tasked with going on a research expedition to a newly discovered continent known only as “new world” as they
venture on quests to discover more about this mysterious land.
- Living and breathing ecosystem: Utilize the surrounding environment and wildlife to your advantage. For example, pit monsters against one another to lure the main target creature to the right place, but be careful not to become hindered by the hazards they present.
- Global simultaneous release: For the first time in the Monster Hunter series the latest title will release within the same launch window and unite hunters across the world with cross-region cooperative play options.
- Online drop-in multiplayer: When the battle is too daunting to take on single-handedly, hail up to three other hunters to assist during quests by sending up a SOS flare to a worldwide server full of potential teammates.
- Hunt to craft new gear: Defeat monsters and collect loot from fallen foes to craft equipment and weapons styled after the monsters that have been slain. Selecting the right loadout can help exploit enemy weaknesses to gain an advantage in battle.
- Master the beasts: A variety of ferocious creatures inhabit the new world landscape including the series mainstay Rathalos and the all new Anjanath. Players can mount the monsters with the dynamic riding mechanic, allowing them to travel along the monster’s body and deliver locational damage.
- Seamless gameplay: Players and monsters can move from one map area to another freely and without loading screens whilst gameplay also dynamically transitions between night and day.
There is a lot of beauty in these features with an online drop in and out feature. You know how many times I had to dip out of a mission just to wait for someone to join me in the guild hall before going back in? With that, if I am in a Jam, I could just send an S.O.S to any pal that is playing and they can come and rescue me. I am also curious about the monster we will check out and the animation of the crafting system.
Monster Hunter: World sees players gear up to venture on quests to battle against fearsome monsters, progressively improving their hunting abilities as they play. Loot collected from fallen foes can be used to create new equipment and armor upgrades as players seamlessly move across map areas that comprise the living ecosystems. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role as players strategically use the surrounding environment to their advantage. Hunters must use their cunning and abilities to survive the intense and evolving fights as they battle to become the ultimate hunter!
Be ready to tackle Monster Hunter: World on a fresh new platform with a high-end experience that you will stay talking about with your friends. Just remember to work as a team and be sure to break off parts of the monster first because you get the most carves when you hunt properly. I do hope they are able to use the DLC perks from the Handheld versions with the cat companions. That was fun building gear for them and they helped you a lot in combat.
Expect Monster Hunter: World to be out Early 2018 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but much later in the year for Windows PC. – Beast Out –
