Monster Hunter World Coming to PS4 – Screenshots, Trailer, Artwork & More!

After years of fan begging, Capcom finally deliver on the biggest fantasy the world of Monster Hunter has had: “big” console support! Monster Hunter World is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018.

The latest entry in the critically acclaimed 40 million unit selling action RPG series, Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles. Venture on quests alone or with up to three other hunters in a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system which allows cross-region cooperative play between Japan and the West, uniting the global player base for the first time ever. Monster Hunter: World will also be the first game in the series with a worldwide simultaneous launch window and is planned for release on PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One in early 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date.

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!

Monster Hunter World FEATURES

  • Welcome to the new World: Taking on the role of a hunter, players are tasked with going on a research expedition to a newly discovered continent known only as “new world” as they venture on quests to discover more about this mysterious land.
  • Living and breathing ecosystem: Utilize the surrounding environment and wildlife to your advantage. For example, pit monsters against one another to lure the main target creature to the right place, but be careful not to become hindered by the hazards they present.
  • Global simultaneous release: For the first time in the Monster Hunter series the latest title will release within the same launch window and unite hunters across the world with cross-region cooperative play options.
  • Online drop-in multiplayer: When the battle is too daunting to take on single-handedly, hail up to three other hunters to assist during quests by sending up a SOS flare to a worldwide server full of potential teammates.
  • Hunt to craft new gear: Defeat monsters and collect loot from fallen foes to craft equipment and weapons styled after the monsters that have been slain. Selecting the right loadout can help exploit enemy weaknesses to gain an advantage in battle.
  • Master the beasts: A variety of ferocious creatures inhabit the new world landscape including the series mainstay Rathalos and the all new Anjanath. Players can mount the monsters with the dynamic riding mechanic, allowing them to travel along the monster’s body and deliver locational damage.
  • Seamless gameplay: Players and monsters can move from one map area to another freely and without loading screens whilst gameplay also dynamically transitions between night and day.

    While I never could get in to the Monster Hunter series, the sheer level of ambition on display here is making me giddy. I likely won’t buy it, but I’m rooting for them nonetheless.

  5. Avatar ElvesRule says:

    I’ve never played a Monster Hunter. Is it just a series of missions against large monsters, like Toukiden, or is there a narrative and variety like Nioh? I’m going to need a new multiplayer game after the last Nioh DLC.

    I am happy that Japanese-developed games are in the ascendancy at PlayStation again. Now gimme that Demon’s Souls remaster!

    I have been waiting for this for years. As a fan from the PS2 original and avid player of the PSP versions, I cannot wait for this.

    Monster hunter is a series that hasn’t done itself justice by remaining on less powerful consoles. My only hope is it retains the multiplayer ethos as myself and my brother are beyond hyped to go hunting together

    it has generally been set missions you go on to hunt a specific target. No story, just the ideals of growing stronger and hunting larger foes. It is a concept based heavily around gameplay and the intrinsic reward of beating these creature a, as well as experimenting with various types of gear and tactics to do so whilst gathering materials to create better weapons.

    Nice to see them expand the mounting system from the 3DS games with that contextual grappling hook. Will be coming back for this! Looks like it’ll be lit in multiplayer – Esquire

    Realy excited about this one. The biggest plus for this game in my opinion is that it is for PC, a big market for this franchise that was completly ignored outside Asia. Finally i can aim my ranged weapons with a mouse.

    I am so very hyped for this game! And cross-region play between Japan and the West has been confirmed. Finally!

    I already started a PS4 community if someone wants in.

    Community Name: Monster Hunter World – Co-op
    PSN ID: MercwithMouth82, same as here

    No invite needed, but if you can’t find it just let me know here and I’ll invite you.

    considering how item and resource heavy Monster Hunter games tend to be can we expect a wiki section for it? I think it would make a lot of sense.

  11. Avatar Fexelea says:

    Already made the wiki, but we are at e3 so I can’t edit much. Feel free to add pages though!

  12. Avatar XuitusTheGreat says:

    …. hype isn’t a powerful enough word for this!

    … super hype? mega hype? Super mega hype?

    Perfection? The wait for this will be torture…

  13. Avatar MercwithMouth82 says:

    Oh if we only already had official information. I don’t even think the new monster name has been revealed but I’ll keep following.

    We are seeing it today on the floor so I’ll have more info, but please go ahead and edit or add any pages in the meantime! Let’s make a great wiki :)

  16. Avatar MercwithMouth82 says:

    I envy you!!!!

    The Monster Hunter Wiki doesn’t appear for me, yet.

    Updating as a loong day gets to a close

    I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game but I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I was probably going to get the one on Switch, but this will almost certainly be better I think.
