Capcom has released a new gameplay video for Monster Hunter: World, the newest entry in the fabled Monster Hunter franchise due for release early next year.
The 23-minute video gives players an idea what to expect from Monster Hunter: World. While there have been growing concerns that Capcom has made the game easier to target western audiences, the company has assured us that this is not the case.
The footage shows, for a fist in the series, voiced NPCs as well as vast open landscapes. The character can be seen following monster footprints as well as Scoutflys in an effort to locate the beast of the quest. The denser the cloud of Scoutflys, the closer the monster is.
Players can now use sound and sell as a way of luring monsters, but the opposite also works, monsters can hear and smell players when they’re nearby. A new stealth mechanic has been added to help players sneak by unnoticed.
Monster Hunter: World is due for release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox in early 2018 with the PC version following soon after. Attendees of this years Gamecon will also get the chance to goes hands-on with the game before release. Let us know what you think of the new gameplay footage. Do you think that Capcom has changed the core of the series too much? Personally, I’m pretty excited and I can’t wait to give it a shot.
