Monster Hunter World update coming Spring 2018
According to the press release:
The Deviljho must feed constantly and will devour anything in its way, even feeding on the largest of monsters with its massive jowls. This wild beast really is one for only the bravest of hunters to take on!
We've also got more details about the Monster Hunter World trailer that was shown during the Capcom Live Stream this week.
Featuring numerous Elder Dragons, Capcom goes into more detail about what we're about to face in the Monster Hunter World beta, which takes place between January 18 to 22.
“The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Another monster introduced in the trailer is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.”
The Monster Hunter World release date is January 26, 2018.
