Monster Hunter: World – Unseen Archive
In the recently released video, we see that the panel is hosted by the games Director ‘Kaname Fujioka’ and Producer ‘Ryozo Fujimoto’.
They gave a presentation on the immersive and interactive world of the Ancient Forest. Which has a living and breathing ecosystem that players will find in Monster Hunter: World.
The developers go on to explain how the Ancient Forest is dominated by the “Ancient Tree”, and presented a diagram of the surrounding High and Low humidity ‘Zones’ that are each home to vastly different creatures.
They also shared the extent of their research in order to mold a believable environment. Their team had actually flown to Australia to observe its foliage and vegetation.
Also, the Director and Producer showcased a tech demo on the creatures skin translucency, fur simulation, and its muscle shaders.
