Capcom has released the launch trailer for Monster Hunter: World, which is available now for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. A PC release will happen later this year.

Here’s a synopsis: In Monster Hunter: World, follow the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. As hunters set out on their quests, the Commission’s sights are set on Zorah Magdaros, a colossal elder dragon that rises from the earth like a volcano.

The series’ rewarding skill-based progression and robust crafting system is at the heart of the game. With the most accessible and seamless gameplay experience in the series to date, players can take on quests to slay increasingly more challenging and dangerous monsters in the food chain in order to earn materials that can be used to craft stronger weapons and armor with unique abilities based on their fallen foes. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role during the hunt as players can strategically use the surrounding environment and wildlife to their advantage. Hunters can now move freely across map areas and use their cunning to draw a monster into a tangle of vines and unleash a flurry of attacks while it’s vulnerable, or lure it into a more fearsome creature’s domain to encourage a territorial face-off that yields massive damage to the target.

There will be plenty of post-launch content released, including PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration event quests that will allow players to earn materials for unique themed equipment. Hunters can have their Palico companions look like a machine from Horizon Zero Dawn with quests that start today and run through February 8. Aloy also appears in the game with her bow and full armor set through quests from February 28th through March 5th. The first major content update will arrive in the Spring and includes the Deviljho monster and more.
