During a Japanese live-stream today, Capcom debuted about 25 minutes of new Monster Hunter World gameplay for all of the world to see. Capcom showed off the same first map that was shown in the reveal trailer during E3, but showcased how online comes into play as 4 hunters took down one of the boss monsters that you will encounter in the game. We can see some new gameplay mechanics in the stream like a damage count display, which shows how much damage your weapon is doing to the enemy; this is a Monster Hunter first. From what we learned from the trailer, we can also see how open and seamless the map is without those loading screens that were present in past entries.
Monster Hunter World is set to launch in early 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Capcom also recently announced that Monster Hunter XX is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but they currently have no plans to bring the game to the west.
