Monster Hunter brought joy to fansat gamescom in Germany this week. Last week we released two featured videos, and this week, we showed live gameplay of the game’s new Wildspire Waste ecosystem and hosted the first public playable demo of Monster Hunter: World. New players and veterans alike were excited to see for themselves what a current gen console Monster Hunter experience feels like. But hey, don’t take my word for it; check out these gameplay sessions posted by our friends in the press below:

Yuri Araujo: And if you’re in the mood for more deep dive videos, our YouTuber buddy  Arekkz recorded breakdowns of some of the weapons and other new features. Check out his take on the Glider Mantle, one of my favorite new features:

Patrick Kulikowski: We’ve got a very cool remix of music from Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, courtesy of our friends over at OverClocked ReMix . Remixers David L. Puga and Mak Eightman wove Jun Fukuda and Masafumi Takada’s “Wesker’s Beginnings,” Misao Senbongi and Shusaku Uchiyama’s “The Mercenaries: Wesker” and Kota Suzuki’s “Wind of Madness” into one big arrangement entitled “(Progeny) of a Frail Humanity.” The chilling piano strokes and ambient twang of the guitars, followed by a crescendo of drums and electric guitar noodling are sure to conjure up some bleak and sinister images of the cold and calculating Resident Evil supervillain. Give it a listen!
