Capcom’s launch trailer by Create Advertising for Monster Hunter: World showcases the game’s striking graphics, jungle setting and savage beasts through a combination of animation and gameplay.
“Embark on a journey … to an uncharted land ... that fights back,” according to the promo.
The game focuses on a once-a-decade migration, called the Elder Crossing, as elder dragons trek across the sea to travel to the land known as the New World.
To get to the bottom of the mysterious phenomenon, the Guild has formed the Research Commission, dispatching them in large fleets to the New World. As the Commission sends its Fifth Fleet in pursuit of the colossal elder dragon known as Zorah Magdaros, players assume the role of a hunter, tasked to either kill or trap roaming monsters to build up weapons, armour and other equipment. Gamers can hunt alone, or in groups of up to four players.
Monster Hunter: World is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release planned for the fall.
