WATCH: Monster Hunter World Introduces Elder Dragons In New Video, Plus DLC Details
For those that just can’t wait until Monster Hunter: World releases, good news! Capcom has just released a bunch of new information about the rapidly approaching title including Elder Dragons, DLC plans, and the final beta period before launch! Basically, it’s like a second Christmas.
According to the press release we received:
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.
For those that may have missed previous beta periods, there’s one more left for players to get their hands on before launch. The final beta is planned for PlayStation 4 players in North America on January 18 and will last all the way until January 22nd. Additional content will also be available for this testing period, “In addition to the previously released Great Jagras, Anjanath and Barroth quests, players will now be able to battle against the game’s terrifying and challenging flagship monster Nergigant.”
They also clued us in on their plenty post-launch content plans – there’s definitely going to be more than enough to keep us busy:
Capcom today confirmed that there are plans for post-launch support of Monster Hunter: World with regular content updates, as well as major title updates for free. The first major title update will be coming in Spring 2018 which includes the addition of the fan-favorite monster Deviljho. Players will be able to put their hunting skills to the test against this brute. 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!”
Monster Hunter: World launches worldwide on January 26th for PlayStation and Xbox One, with a PC release slated for the following Fall. What did you think about the latest video?
