Monster Hunter: World Ancient Forest Gameplay

The highly anticipated Monster Hunter: World was revealed at this years E3, so of course, I am hyped with many other hunters that we are getting a console release. Right now we have game footage of the Ancient Forest mission where we will get a deeper glimpse on the strategy of hunting monsters. This is good for you new hunters out there to see how intense and what upgrades there will be while tracking down said monsters.

This was a pretty good video showing you options of other monsters around the area while you are doing a mission. I for one am the type to take a bit on the side and hunt more than one, but since this is a time attack mission. It would be tasked to take on both huge monsters, especially when the main target is putting up such a fight.

Weapons are Key!

I have been a hunter since the PS2, moved on to PSP and then the 3DS XL. I love the glaive weaponry, but I tend to switch long sword at times for the high defense and power. I am not sure as of yet what other weapons they will add, but the grappling hook will utilize a lot. I hope they still let us build traps for the hunt, but don’t get me wrong using the environment is a nice touch as well and brings a whole new tactic to the game.

Palico Power!! 

Oh-kay I am a big scary dude and I love these little guys ever since they became your sidekick in the 3DS XL version and having to build their little weaponry as well as armor. I am not expecting the same level of content that Nintendo brought to us that made that fun to farm, but dammit I want a Kratos Palico or weaponry for my little buddy! Now only is having a Palico a great idea, but scout flies will play a huge part in the game. I am digging all the tools that are being granted to us.

That Good Meat…Pause! 

Carve it up and make sure you leave nothing to rot in the background. I did get a bit annoyed when after doing all that damage and finally taking off the tail. The player left the freaking tail behind and I am screaming at the scream, “You better go back and crave that thing!” They are showing off the bow gun and it is all right, but I am more into melee. That is the beauty of Monster Hunter: World is the team based combat where everyone can use different weapons that fit their play style so you all can handle situations differently.

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!

I do hope the next video goes in-depth about the weapons and armor farming, but for now, we just have to wait for more information develops. Monster Hunter: World will be out sometime in 2018 and I hope to see you in the next update. – Beast Out
