What You Need to Know:
- We're just as pumped as you are for when Monster Hunter: World officially releases on consoles early next year, and after watching the latest footage of all those amazing weapons that hype is only growing larger. Players can choose from 14 different weapon types based on their preferred playstyle and these can be changed mid-quest, depending on what the hunt demands.
- The three videos demonstrate that there’s a vast range of unique weapons for players to choose from, whether they’re new to the hunt or already a seasoned veteran. Swords and blades can be useful in cutting damage and executing fast paced attacks, impact weapons like hammers can cause high damage and stun opponents while ranged weapons such as bowguns allow you to attack beasts from afar. If the hunt is too overwhelming, support style weapons can be very useful such as the hunting horn which plays melodies that provide buffs for the team.
- Which class will you choose? We'll see you in the wild early 2018 when Monster Hunter: World releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC!
