Monster Hunter: World[a] is an action role-playing game developed and published by Capcom. A part of the Monster Hunter series, it was released worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in January 2018, with a Microsoft Windows version in August 2018. In the game, the player takes the role of a Hunter, tasked to hunt down and either kill or trap monsters that roam in one of several environmental spaces. If successful, the player is rewarded through loot consisting of parts from the monster and other elements that are used to craft weapons and armor, amongst other equipment. The game’s core loop has the player crafting appropriate gear to be able to hunt down more difficult monsters, which in turn provide parts that lead to more powerful gear. Players may hunt alone, or can hunt in cooperative groups of up to four players via the game’s online services.
Announced at E3 2017, Monster Hunter: World adopts the series’ standard formulas from its older home console roots and recent handheld games to take advantage of the higher processing power provided by modern consoles and computers. Changes made in Monster Hunter: World include creating environmental spaces that are fully connected and removing the “zones” that were necessary for the PlayStation 2 and handheld games, more advanced monster artificial intelligence and physics to create seemingly living ecosystems that could be taken advantage of during hunts, a more persistent cooperative multiplayer experience, and a refinement of the game’s user interface, menu systems, and tutorials to help with bringing new players into the series. These changes led Capcom to plan for the game’s simultaneous release across both Japan and Western markets, since Monster Hunter as a series has generally languished in the West compared to Japan partially due to disparate release schedules. Capcom also opted to support online play between these different geographic regions for similar reasons. The delay for the Windows release was attributed to Capcom seeking to make sure its first foray into the Windows market was optimized for players on computers.
Monster Hunter: World received critical acclaim upon release, with critics praising how Capcom was able to make the game more accessible to new players and to Western markets, without detracting from the series’ core gameplay elements and enjoyable difficulty, and fully taking advantage of the computational capacity of modern consoles to create living ecosystems. Within a few weeks of release, the game became the fastest-selling game in Capcom’s history, eventually becoming their best-selling game with over eight million copies shipped by July 2018.
Newly introduced in Monster Hunter: World are cloak items called Mantles that provide beneficial effects. The Ghillie Mantle conceals hunters from enemy view temporarily. The effect expires if you perform an attack or take damage.. The Glider Mantle increases jump airtime and grants the power to ride strong winds in various areas as well as making it easier to mount monsters.. The Rocksteady Mantle eliminates damage reactions, prevents wind effects, protects the hunter’s hearing, and grants tremor resistance. The Rocksteady Mantle also protects hunters so they receive less damage. The Challenger Mantle prompts monsters to target the hunter more often and makes them easier to lure with the effect expiring after being attacked.
On the offensive side, Hunters can utilize a new item called the Slinger in combat. This wrist-mounted slingshot that allows hunters to fire a grappling hook to traverse or interact with environmental obstacles. The Slinger can be used to fire rocks and other items at monsters.
Gathering and using items in Monster Hunter: World has been streamlined allowing for Hunters to quickly obtain items in the field. Hunters can interact with flora and fauna in various ways, like the Vigorwasps that can be used to recover health or the Paratoads which will produce a paralyzing toxin. New guides known as Scoutflies are used to track monsters. By gathering monster samples on the field, such as drool, mucus, or footprints, Scoutflies hone in on the exact location to monsters. Scoutflies can also be used to guide players to selected areas on the map, such as specific flowers or fauna. Hunters can now hunt freely without being limited to a main objective or questline. Once the quest is complete, Hunters can choose to continue exploring the area via Expedition Mode.
The Hunter’s feylne sidekick, the Palcio, can interact with other felyne clans, such as the Grimalkynes. By doing so, the Palico can learn the language of small monsters, like Jagras and Kestodon, and befriend them. During hunts, the Palico may befriend a small monster which will then aid the player.
Hunters can register equipment pieces they wish to craft by using the Wishlist. The wishlist displays the equipment’s material requirements and can be reviewed at any time, hunters will receive a notification when all the required materials have been obtained.. Charms can be crafted and upgraded by using materials.. Some armor sets possess a unique skill that can only be obtained by wearing enough pieces of the equipment set.. The Handler can make meals for the hunter at the Base Camp by using food items, such as Raw Meat. She may also give an additional item like Rations. This depends on the items that the hunter uses.
