Monster Hunter Wilds Shown Off At PlayStation State Of Play

The next highly anticipated title in Capcom’s Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter Wilds, has made a reappearance at PlayStation’s recent State of Play showcase. This upcoming RPG seems to combine elements from both Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter Rise, creating a more interactive and engaging world for players.

First unveiled with a 90-second teaser at last year’s Game Awards, Monster Hunter Wilds introduces mountable companion monsters similar to Rise, but with a greater emphasis on hostile environments and fluid traversal mechanics. In a recent trailer showcased at State of Play, players were given a closer look at the improved density of monsters onscreen and the dynamic changes that can occur in the game world in real-time.

The gameplay footage from the State of Play event highlighted the arid desert biome featured in Monster Hunter Wilds, showcasing the player character wielding various weapons such as a greatsword, rifle, and flamethrower to combat new and terrifying monsters. One of the standout features of Wilds appears to be the shifting environment, with weather conditions like sandstorms and thunderstorms affecting gameplay.

A notable addition to the game is the mountable companion that seamlessly integrates into combat scenarios, providing assistance and unique gameplay opportunities. Monster Hunter Wilds aims to build upon the success of previous titles like Monster Hunter: World and Rise by combining expansive biomes with refined movement systems for an immersive gaming experience.

Monster Hunter: World, released in 2018, propelled the series to new heights by becoming Capcom’s best-selling game. The intricate ecosystems and dense environments of Monster Hunter: World were praised by players and critics alike. Monster Hunter Rise, launched on the Switch in 2021, expanded to other platforms in 2023 with a significant expansion.

As fans eagerly await the release of Monster Hunter Wilds in 2025, it promises to deliver a thrilling gaming experience that merges the best elements of its predecessors. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting addition to the Monster Hunter franchise.
