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.

    Yes! Was honestly worried when they didn't talk about it we might not get it until October. Rather we got it already but a month away isn't too bad. Hopefully there will be enough people playing it on PC to find a group like on PS4.

    If I'm ever to get into MonHun, this is probably the best chance for me. I'll wait until it's tested on PC by Digital Foundry.

    At the start of the year i said I'd probably skip this because I figured by this point in the year there'd be a ton of games that caught my attention.

    But the only big game to do that for me is Pillars of Eternity 2, everything else has been a small indie title. Sooooo, I might actually just get this sooner than I thought.
