New Monster Hunter World Trailer Shows Off a Brutal New Area

Wildspire Waste looks really sick.

Capcom released a new Monster Hunter World trailer today for the upcoming installment for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The new trailer gives players a deeper look into a new, terrifying region called the Wildspire Waste.

Wildspire Waste is an area planned for Monster Hunter World and I already hate it. From the trailer, Wildspire Waste is a barren, desert region with pockets of woods and swamps. It doesn't matter, because it's full of gross lizard monsters, chicken monsters (Kulu-Ya-Ku who apparently steals other monster's eggs), and giant ants. The game looks amazing by the way, but that just makes all the gross little details in the Wildspire Waste video stand out.

Monster Hunter World was announced earlier this year at E3 and is the first console Monster Hunter game since Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. Monster Hunter World will feature 14 different weapon types, all recently showcased in a series of video trailers for each weapon.

However, some fans have mixed feelings towards Monster Hunter World. The Monster Hunter community is worried that Monster Hunter World might be ditching the series' infamously difficult systems for a more mainstream, action-oriented approach to appeal to a broader audience. According to some early hands-on previews, this fear might not be completely unfounded.

Still, for those looking for a traditional Monster Hunter experience, Japan will be getting a version of Monster Hunter XX on the Nintendo Switch. The only problem is there's no word yet on a western release. Fingers crossed though.
