Capcom released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Monster Hunter: World game. Featuring a brief look at how quests unfold as well as a giant new monster, long-time fans are in for a treat…

Actually, what’s shown is interesting even if you’ve never played a MH game before. World places hunters on a newly discovered continent. Because of this and the new monsters they’ll face, new tools and skills were made available – the slinger or camouflaging ghillie suit come to mind.  

Some of the gameplay changes aren’t tied to the new environment as a lot of it has to do with the fact that MH: World is coming to the Xbox One and PS4; it would seem that Capcom is concerned with the Western market this time around. That said, from what I’ve seen, World is still very much a Monster Hunter game. Personally, I’m looking forward to the changes. Every series needs to evolve at some point.

Monster Hunter: World will be availabe on the Xbox One and PS4 in early 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date!
