Monster Hunter World represents a return to home consoles, with this version having been developed from the ground up specifically for current-gen hardware, not just a port of the handheld version.

During Sony’s E3 2017 briefing, Capcom showed the first trailer for the game. Although it was made up entirely of gameplay footage, it made it look more like a single-player action game than the group action we’re typically used to from the series.

Fear not, though, as this is a true Monster Hunter game that supports drop-in, drop-out co-op with up to four players. Interestingly, the player firing the flare at the end is how you’ll be able to bring in others into your game.

All of this and more is covered in Alex’s video above. It also sounds like many of the features Monster Hunter fans are used to such as using monster parts to craft items, cooking before a hunt and so on will all make a return.
