Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World is now available to satisfy all your hunting, crafting, and cooking needs! (Unless you’re on PC; sorry.) So whether it’s solo monster-hunting or co-op party play you’re into, the new installment in the Monster Hunter franchise should offer up plenty of hours of entertainment, which may or may not be interrupted by a few minutes of sleep here or there.
The launch trailer for the game is now available. It does a solid job at showing off the game’s visuals and the rich, exotic world populated by monsters of all sorts. There’s a bit of actual gameplay thrown in for good measure, but the launch trailer is just to catch the attention of folks who didn’t know that a new Monster Hunter was in the world; die-hard fans have likely been aware of the game’s style and mechanics since the betas were released late last year. The good news is that Monster Hunter: World is now here, and it looks fantastic!

Hunting monsters is hard work and, sometimes, hunters need to unwind. Petting an adorable Poogie is the perfect way to get your mind off those razor-sharp Anjanath fangs that closed on you just moments ago. Pet it (the Poogie, not the Anjanath) the right way and it’ll eventually start warming up to you, even letting you pick it up and take it all over Astera! You might even be rewarded for your kindness…
