Catching up with Monster Hunter: World

By Blackwalt - Posted on 26 August 2017

I realized I am posting hand-ons before we even talked about the game

    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. The first worldwide launch in the series on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in early 2018.

So it is possible, although unlikely, that I occasionally go off on tangents about different games. Sometimes this works out (Borderlands, Dead Island) and sometimes it doesn't (Operation Raccoon City). Sometimes the games are only of interest to certain Clan Members (The Crew, Ark Survival Involved, Fortnite). If nothing else, it does provide us with content.

Monster Hunter: World appears to be one of those tangents. It will probably land in the third category edging toward the first. It is a four player cooperative game, it is open world, and it targets giant monsters which appear to be a cross between dinosaurs and dragons. No zombies that I can tell but it still hits many of the HoC Points of Interest.

I did go directly to a Hands-on video with out really thinking about it. Today I am going to make up for that with trailers and game information and features directly from the Monster Hunter: World Official Site.

    Venture into uncharted territory and blistering heat in Wildspire Waste in Monster Hunter: World. Gear up with your fellow hunters to take down the fearsome creatures that have claimed this territory as their own. These beasts won't slay themselves...


    Monster Hunter is an action RPG series that puts you in the boots of a hunter, facing off against gigantic monsters in magnificent, lush environments.

    As a hunter, you'll take on quests to hunt monsters in a variety of habitats. Take down these monsters and receive materials that you can use to create stronger weapons and armor in order to hunt even more dangerous monsters.

    The series has achieved worldwide sales of over 40 million units, thanks to the ability to play by yourself or with other players co-operatively.

    In Monster Hunter: World, the latest installment in the series, you can enjoy the ultimate hunting experience, using everything at your disposal to hunt monsters in a new world teeming with surprises and excitement.


    A World That Breathes Life: There are various locations teeming with wildlife. Expeditions into these locales are bound to turn up interesting discoveries.

    A Diverse Ecosystem: Both prey and predator alike abide by their natural instincts.

    The New World: The hunter arrives in the New World as a member of the Research Commission. Here, in unknown territory, the hunter encounters a wilderness filled with dangers and surprises. Open up the world by utilizing not only your weapons and armor, but the various flora, fauna, and even the New World itself to your advantage.

    The Hunter's Arsenal: There are fourteen different weapons at the Hunter's disposal, each with their own unique characteristics and attacks. Many hunters acquire proficiency in multiple types, while others prefer to gain mastery in one.
