This new Monster Hunter World trailer stars the fugliest flamingo beast ever


In preparation for Gamescom, Capcom shared some new footage for Monster Hunter: World, starting with a look at one of the new locations, Wildspire Waste.

The Wildspire Waste is described as "a massive, dry expanse with swamplands", where beasts have strategically adapted to the environment in order to survive. The first step is to take on a quest.

Retaining the series' skill based progression and robust crafting system, players gear up to venture on quests to seek and slay monsters, progressively improving their skills to become the ultimate hunter.

In the trailer above, you are introduced to a magnificent bird-like creature called the Kulu-Ya-Ku - a monster that steals the eggs of other creatures in both the Wildspire Waste and another area called the Ancient Forest, which was revealed last month.

The trailer introduces the Barroth, a enormous creature that consumes ants and marks its territory with mud.

You can see some of these awesome creatures, screenshots of the world, and more in the gallery below. North American hunters will get their chance to play the game at PAX West in Seattle.

Monster Hunter: World is now in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the console versions arriving in early 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date.
