It’s all in the game’s title, Monster Hunter Online will have you chasing down and killing wild monstrous creatures. The latest trailer shows off a whole menagerie of the beasts that will be falling under your sword.
What was new to me was how much blood these animals are packing. It seems like even a papercut would have them spraying out plumes of the red stuff.
Monster Hunter Online looks to have you and your friends try to bag big beasties via a blend of twonking them with massive melee weapons or cutting them down from a distance with rifles. It’s all looking lovely in the CryEngine 3, though it’s not looking as a high-quality as the stuff coming out from Crytek’s own development studios.
The game’s closed beta will be launching in China on 6 July. We’ve still had no word of an international release.
