About The Game:Master ancient tech to hunt down giant beasts. WILD HEARTS™ is a twist on the hunting genre where technology gives you a fighting chance against giant nature-infused beasts. Hunt alone or with friends.
Tame A World Gone Wild:No one remembers why the Kemono began their rampage. These giant beasts wield the power of nature itself, and none could stand against their might. Until you, hunter, armed with deadly weapons and ancient Karakuri technology, could turn the tide of battle.
Welcome to Azuma:Despite the destruction wrought by the Kemono, the land of Azuma remains quite beautiful. In WILD HEARTS™ you'll explore this fantasy world inspired by feudal Japan – from its flower-filled meadows to towering ruins.
Hunt Giant Natured-Infused Beasts:Kemono are the embodiment of the power of nature. These giant beasts fused with natural elements over time, modifying their environment to accommodate their needs. How can mere humans hope to take down such massive foes?
Craft Your Hunting Ground:You are the only one in Azuma able to wield the Karakuri technology. This ancient tech enables you to adapt your environment into creative hunting grounds ideal for taking down the giant Kemono.
Gear Up to Hunt, Hunt to Gear Up:The more you hunt, the more you progress. Create your character, then gather materials from each hunt and build an array of armor and weapons to bring down even bigger beasts.
Hunt In a Pack Or Be a Lone Wolf:For some, the thrill of the hunt is best savored alone. But even the most deadly hunter may face a beast they cannot take down on their own. In WILD HEARTS you can unite with up to two friends (or other players) to stalk and hunt your prey.
