Monster Hunter World is the new installment of the popular series of action RPGs developed by Capcom. The title at first debuted only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; the PC version was released a bit later. What’s interesting, it’s the first entry in the series that debuted simultaneously in Japan and on western markets.

Plot

The story isn’t very important in Monster Hunter World released on PC, PS4 and XONE. The player assumes the role of the titular monster hunter who is exploring a newly discovered continent known as “the New World”. He learns the secrets of the area and defeats powerful beasts as part of bounty contracts received during his adventure.

Mechanics

Monster Hunter World for PC, PS4 and XONE features a vast, open world that can be freely traveled through on foot or on the back of a tamed creature. The game includes a day and night cycle and the possibility to climb on some elements of the environment. However, the centerpiece isn’t exploration, but elimination of various beasts. Each opponent has a unique set of advantages and weaknesses – in order to win the player must carefully observe the behavior of the beast and develop a proper tactic that considers creature’s weaknesses, topography of the area and the plants growing on the battlefield. For example, the latter enables the player to hide in the high grass when needed. In addition to that, the world is designed in such way that it seems like a living ecosystem – the player can, for example, lure one creature to another and weaken or even defeat the target without leaving a safe hideout.

The battles are played in real time and they enable the player to use varied melee weapons, ranged weapons and gadgets like a grappling hook, thanks to which the protagonist can immediately reach distant targets. The title also features character development system based on obtaining better weapons and armors. In addition to that, the corpses of fallen monsters are the source of resources that can be used to create upgrades for weapons and armors.

Game modes

Monster Hunter World for PC, PS4 and XONE was developed primarily for single players. However, the title also features a cooperation multiplayer – when things are becoming too hard, the player can summon up to three companions. Their backup can frequently change the outcome of the battle.

Technical aspects

The three-dimensional graphics of Monster Hunter World are of high quality – the developers succeeded in creating the best looking entry in the series.
