At Sony’s E3 presentation, a surprise announcement took everyone by surprise. Monster Hunter: World was announced for the PS4.
According to Sony:
“Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players strive to become the ultimate hunter. Explore a vast new continent and slay terrifying monsters in heart-pounding co-op battles for up to four players.”
This game marks the series return to the PlayStation family after a few of the games were released exclusively on Nintendo consoles.
From the trailer, it seems like Capcom removed the loading time whenever the player transitions between two different areas and the player is also able to interact with the environment. This will allow players to create various strategies to take down the monsters. Also, according to Capcom, the game will feature a redesigned drop in system that will allow a bigger pool of potential players.
I have only briefly played a demo of Monster Hunter 4 on my 3DS and to be honest, I didn’t like how the game felt on a handheld console. It felt kind of clunky and I thought it would be better suited for a home console so I’m really excited that one is being made for the PS4 and Xbox One.
Monster Hunter: World will be available on PS4 and Xbox One in 2018 and on PC at a later date.
