Monster Hunter: World heads out on consoles next week, but Capcom aren’t slowing the hype train down one bit. This time around it’s the Coral Highlands area on display. You can also check out the Rotten Vale if that interests you.
This setting features in the following nine-minute-long sliver of in-game footage. Pursuing a winged Paolumu, the narrator warns players: “do not let his cuddly exterior fool you, this monster will make swift work of hunters who take him for granted and subsequently find themselves rather unprepared.”
While braving the bat-like monster’s guard-breaking “tremendous gusts of wind”, there’s also some footage of flying mounts being used by the player, and relying on some inadvertent backup from a Tzitzi-Ya-Ku creature. Other flora and fauna are unique to the Coral Highlands as well. Overall, the area bears a lot of resemblance to a seascape on the ocean floor.
Check out the trailer below:
If you’re interested in more MHW action, you might want to check out footage of the Palico companions; or if you’re looking for more news on the PC release, check out Capcoms dev update on the topic.
But a new area trailer wasn’t the only thing MHW fans got this week. A spate of new TV commercials were also released. Monster duels and ferocious combat abound, check them out.
The game will release worldwide on January 26th, for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming this fall.
