For the first time in nearly a decade, the Monster Hunter franchise is coming to consoles. It promises to bring the same experience that players love around the world with new features along the way.
While Monster Hunter World can be played solo, it will have four player co-op in a drop-in drop-out multiplayer that will have cross-region between the West and Japan for the first time ever.
Like previous Monster Hunter games, you’ll be able to hunt, loot, cook and craft your gear out of fallen foes. There will also be new gear that will give you more freedom of movement than ever before. Grappling hooks can give you an advantage and you’ll be able to destroy parts of the environment as you see fit. You can even pit monsters between each other and see who comes out on top. There will be a dynamic day and night cycle with no loading screens in the game.
Monster Hunter World will be out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early 2018 with the PC version coming out later that year.
I cannot wait for this game to come out. I played a little bit of the Monster Hunter games when I had a 3DS and had a lot of fun with them, so having a console version has me hyped. I hope it lives up to the franchise and show why these games are so loved. Early 2018 is packed.
