Monster Hunter: World confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early 2018! PC version coming at a later date. #MHWorld



EDIT: Details sheet



Looks like a "modernized" take on Monster Hunter, including detective vision/glowy bits tracking, stealth mechanics, non segmented level design, faster machine gun like bowguns (you can even move while shooting), environmental destruction, monsters fighting each other, and, uh, a grappling hook? Actual melee combat wasn't really shown much except for MH4-style mounting.

Need to see whether this will deliver. If it does the better, if it doesn't, let's hope the Switch rumours still hold.

It looked like something I don't want to buy. The gameplay looked really bad. The visuals were great though!

But at least the visuals mean they have some good HD assets for the next mainline game. TGS should be fun.

C+p from the other thread.

Man that sure was different to what I thought I'd see. Dissapointed that we didn't see any actual Monster Hunting instead glowy item gathering and cinematic mumbo jumbo. Hopefully the other part of the runour is true and we'll see an actual MH in line with previous ones on switch

So it obviously was the best looking game in the series. But it didn't wow me compared to other games shown for PS4/XB1.

It also appeared to make significant changes that might not appeal to Japan.

I'm not sure this is going to be able to stand out. Seems like a rather muted reaction so far.

Still disappointing that it is a "westernized" version that won't put as much weight in hunts preparation as the normal games.

Looked great, I'm surprised reactions are so mixed.

Guess it wasn't mind blowing.

After watching it I know nothing about how it will actually play. Similar to any MH reveal trailer.

Want to see more but I know I'll get it just because its called MH

Visuals look outdated when i saw it on the stream and combat looks pretty jank. Will reserve judgement until theres a gameplay slice.

Same. Looked bland and felt off on a lot of details.
Stealth next to a monster, particles to show places/items to loot, grappling hook, old animations with new graphics, etc.
Will try on PC at least, but it's at the same time better and worse than expected.

an MH title back on sony console is HUGE
whose to say if this becomes successful the mainline won't jump over?

Since there were multiple unanswered questions about why I no longer cared about the Switch MH. It's because.

Because I'll be getting that for PC (likely) or PS4 instead? I was only going to get the Switch version because I didn't think Capcom would ever bring it to PC or Console due to wanting to keep development costs down.

But, we'll see.

Yay Monster Hunter on PC (that is coming overseas that is :p) could be so nice, even through I will probably still prefer portability for this series. Shall see how this goes then, cause it does look kind of bleh for now.

I hate when Japanese devs westernize their games like FFXV. It's still early, but I'm not excited.

Sorry, but portable-only for me. Gotta have my local multiplayer. Gonna skip this one altogether.

Wow the rumor was true. Looks good. I wonder if it will sell. I can see the "westernized" style.
