Capcom has released brand-new and action-packed gameplay footage for Monster Hunter Wilds. In case you missed it, the trailer below (aired during today’s Sony State of Play) introduces the characters in the story, new monsters, the unique Seikret mount, and a few glimpses of the Windward Plains locale.

In Monster Hunter Wilds, veterans of the franchise can use their favorite weapons as all 14 of them make their return. While there won’t be any new tools at our disposal, each one will have new movesets and action features to master. Additionally, a focus mode has been added to the combat, allowing players greater control over how they guard, aim, and strike the monster’s weak spots.

Monster Hunter Wilds Overview

A wild and unrelenting new frontier.

Dynamic, ever-changing environments. A story of monsters and humans in a world with two faces: one in which the lands are harsh and unforgiving, where monsters fight for scant resources—and another in which the lands are vibrant and brimming with life.

You play as a professional monster hunter, protecting the balance of the ecosystem and hunting monsters. Use the resources you gain from hunts to craft ever more powerful weapons and armor in your quest to unravel the mysteries of the new lands.

Experience the most evolved action and improved immersion in any Monster Hunter to date.
