Capcom has released the video above for its upcoming action RPG, Monster Hunter: World, which showcases some multiplayer action. Taken at Gamescom 2017, the footage shows Community Manager Joshua Dahdra playing the game with YouTuber Arekkz, and developers Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka.

PlayStation LifeStyle’s Tyler Treese also got to check out Monster Hunter: World at E3 2017, and was quite impressed with it. He writes:

I walked away extremely impressed by Monster Hunter: World, and it further cemented my opinion that the series belongs on consoles. The player has more ways to interact with the environment than ever before, as I saw the warrior parkour off tree ledges, climb vines, and truly use the wilderness to his advantage. Due to how alive the ecosystem is, there seems to be hundreds of ways that a potential battle could unfurl. I’m so excited to develop my own strategies when the game releases in 2018.

Monster Hunter: World isn’t a port or a spin-off, it’s the natural evolution of Capcom’s beloved series. While the developer has managed to keep its signature identity, there are so many new dynamic ways to interact with the world. It’ll provide a fresh experience for even the most hardcore fans, and it looks to be one of the early gems of next year.

Monster Hunter: World releases in Q1 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and sometime later for PC.
