Monster Hunter World developers recently held a livestream on the game and shared some new details on the state of the game. First they showed a huge gameplay video that showed the hunter exploring the world alone, hunting the various monster leading to a 4 player co-op fight. In addition to the video, Capcom has confirmed some of the monsters that will be in the game but refused to reveal how many monsters will be available in the whole game.
The following monsters will be featured in Monster Hunter World: Great Jagras, Anjanath and Rathalos. Aside from them, there will be more monsters but Capcom hasn’t revealed them yet.
Monster Hunter World will also require PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold for multiplayer, as confirmed on the livestream.
