Monster Hunter Wilds Gets New Trailer While Confirming Several New Monsters – State of Play 2024

Capcom has released a brand new Monster Hunter: Wilds trailer, offering a new look at the anticipated sequel while showcasing several monsters.

The trailer shown during Thursday’s State of Play stream showcased a whole new cinematic look at the game, including a handful of combat gameplay. We also took a look at a number of weapons and their functions in combat, including confirmation that all 14 weapon types are returning from previous games as well as new actions. And we saw more of the game’s biomes plagued by sandstorms, the Windward Plains.

The new trailer represents the first big wave of monsters confirmed for Monster Hunter: Wilds. Newcomers to the series are the Dalthydon, a herbivorous wyvern with a seasonal migration pattern, and Ceratonoth, who travel in herds so that the males can protect the group from sandstorms with their lightning rod-like dorsal horns. There are also big monsters, like the fanged Doshaguma and the Chatacabra… a creature with a huge tongue and ridiculous saliva. Previously, Capcom revealed Rathalos, who is one of the main recurring monsters in the franchise.

Mount Hunter Wilds tasks players with joining a Research Commission team investigating a place called the Forbidden Lands, where they encounter new companions and a mysterious child who becomes integral to the plot. New Wilds features include full voice acting, smooth flow from story sequences to gameplay, and new mounts called Seikrets that allow riders to perform actions on the move, like sharpening weapons or collecting materials.

Monster Hunter Wilds was first announced during The Game Awards 2023, where it was confirmed to be coming to PS5, Xbox, and PC. It is the sequel to the hits Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter: Rise, which together sold some 40 million units.

As always, Monster Hunter: Wilds will pit up to four players against a multitude of fantastical and challenging beasts, with the final game taking place in a desert setting. Monster Hunter Wilds does not have a firm release date but is expected to release sometime in 2025. Players who link Monster Hunter: World to save data will receive special bonus items. More information is expected to be revealed during Summer Game Fest, which begins on June 7.

In the meantime, several other games were revealed during the stream. Go here to see everything that was announced during State of Play, and be sure to tune into Beyond’s post-show immediately after the stream ends.
