Ahead of Gamescom, Capcom has revealed the first look at a new area, The Wildspire Waste Area, a massive, dry expanse with swamplands, this particular area of the New World sees creatures who inhabit the areas adapting to survive.
Capcom has released two videos featuring the new area, as well as a hunting 101 video that breaks down the process of hunting in Monster Hunter: World.
Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter that completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a lively living and breathing eco-system full of predators…. and prey. In the new video you can see some more of the creatures you can expect to come across upon adventuring on your quest. These magnificent beasts include the likes of the Kulu-Ya-Ku, a bird like creature that is often seen stealing other monsters’ eggs from the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. The giant Barroth is a returning Monster Hunter series favourite and can be found marking its territory with mud as it wanders in search of its favourite snack – ants. Don’t be fooled by its taste for smaller meals though, this creature will charge anyone or anything that invades its territory and only the bravest of hunters can take on the challenge to bring it down.
