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 video you can see some of the creatures you can expect to come across within the New World, the newly discovered continent where Monster Hunter: World is set, including the Great Jagras which has the ability to swallow its prey whole and one of the Monster Hunter series favorites, Rathalos.

Monster Hunter World is going to sport some features that have never been seen in the series. According to what executive producer Kaname Fujioka recently said, the changes are implemented due to the seamless gameplay design, and not to make things more streamlined, as some fear.

If you want to ask where we draw the line between ‘change this’ and ‘don’t change that,then that’s what the difference is: do our new seamless gameplay design and seamless monster interactions necessitate a change, or do they not? It certainly isn’t appeasement to get sales to a casual western audience – the new gameplay has to mesh with the new concept or else it would just be a mess.

Monster Hunter World launches next year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
