Monster Hunter World Gameplay Demo and Developer Interview

Monster Hunter World first debuted at E3 2017, and Capcom were on hand afterwards to take questions on PlayStation's YouTube livestream, which you can see below. Capcom are clearly looking to take full advantage of the power of consoles like the PlayStation 4 Pro, saying that whereas before they were only able to produce small open areas in past Monster Hunter games, they're now able to implement large open map areas for Monster Hunter World.

The developer from Capcom also explained that each different type of monster in the world will have different personalities, meaning you can potentially use monsters against one another, swooping in to finish off any that remain and reap the easy rewards.
