I’ve been holding onto this all day, but Capcom released a new trailer for Monster Hunter World that gives some insight into some of the returning monsters, mostly elder dragons.
The trailer showed that there are two returning elder dragons, the first being Kushala Daora, a personal favorite of mine, which is a metal covered dragon that favors icy climates and has mastery over the wind. Kushala excels at keeping hunters at bay by creating cyclones that stop projectiles and jumping hunters. Teostra is the next returning elder dragon. Teostra isn’t afraid to rush down hunters and fill the area around him with explosions. Teostra is hyper aggressive and isn’t afraid to send explosions towards uninitiated hunters. A tip for new hunters, with both of them being elder dragons they are both susceptible to dragon element. And finally, the trailer shows off a new monster named Dodogama, a rock eating monster that has an explosive spit that can turn boulders into traps and cover hunters in spit.
Not only has Capcom dropped a new trailer, they also announced one last beta test for all PlayStation users from January 18 through the 22nd. The beta has the same three monsters, Great Jagras, Anjanath, and Barroth, but this time it’ll contain the brand-new flagship monster, Nergigante. I’ve been dying to test out this hyper-aggressive monster. Again, if I had to guess he’d be weak against ice and dragon. We’ll figure out more once the beta goes live.
And lastly, at the end of the trailer, Capcom showed that all of the DLC for the game is going to be completely free, and that spring of 2018 will bring the first massive patch and brings with it, my personal hardest monster to go against, Deviljho. Deviljho is a t-rex style monster who has to constantly eat to keep up with attacks. I’m excited to see Deviljho again but extremely nervous to keep tossed around again.
Monster Hunter World releases to PS4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018, and will release on PC later in Autumn 2018.
