Monster Hunter Wilds: Everything We Know About Monster Hunter Wilds
Monster Hunter has been around since the first game was released back in 2004, and many fans have stuck with this unique series. The action role-playing series does exactly what its name suggests: Players hunt monsters.
Now, with the release of Monster Hunter Wilds just around the corner, many are preparing themselves for a whole new level of monster hunting.
Here is everything we know about Monster Hunter Wilds.
While there isn’t an exact date that Monster Hunter Wilds is expected to release, there is at least a window, so players have some expectations for the game’s official release. On Capcom’s official website for the game, it is stated that the game will be released sometime in 2025.
While that release window may be an entire year, at least we know that the company is shooting to have the game drop by a specific time. Still, delays do happen, meaning we could see the game release even later.
While the expectation has been set for a release in 2025, many are hoping the game releases sooner in the year and not during the back end. Only time will tell, though.
Will Monster Hunter Wilds be Available on PS5 and Xbox?
The big question when any game releases is what platforms will it be available on. With the console wars being more prominent than ever, some games may only be released on one platform. You also have the Nintendo Switch, a system that has its exclusives, while also getting big releases every once in a while.
So what consoles will Monster Hunter Wilds be available on? Well, fans will be happy to know that the new Monster Hunter game will not be exclusive and will be available on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The game will also be purchasable on Steam, making it available on PC. Switch players, though, will have to wait and see if the game comes to their system in the future, as it has no plans at the moment for release on the Nintendo console.
Will Monster Hunter Wilds have a Multiplayer Mode?
Playing with friends is always better. Monster Hunter Wilds will have a playable multiplayer mode and an online multiplayer mode, allowing gamers to fight monsters together from all over.
But will the game allow crossplay between different systems? While there is no answer on this yet, it would be a huge win for the series if they made crossplay available. In the past, though, no other Monster Hunter game has had crossplay, so it may be unlikely we see it in this new title.
Still, there is hope for the newest instalment in the Monster Hunter series, as many fans are hoping that crossplay becomes a thing. Many games are starting to do it, so it would not be unheard of.
What Will Monster Hunter Wilds be Rated?
At the moment, the game is still pending a rating. In the past, though, the other Monster Hunter games have been rated T for Teen. The new Monster Hunter will likely be rated T also, but this is still up in the air.
While the game is violent, it isn’t comparable to games like The Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA V and others. This gives the series a much broader audience, as more younger gamers can purchase the game.
With physical copies of video games starting to dwindle out, more and more younger gamers will be able to buy mature games without getting stopped. This makes the problem of whether or not a game will sell more copies based on its rating seem sort of pointless.
Will Monster Hunter Wilds have a Sequel?
While the plot of the new Monster Hunter Wilds game is still under wraps, it is safe to say that another instalment will eventually be released after the upcoming one. Monster Hunter games have been dropping for quite some time now. Their success within the gaming industry has given the series no reason to stop making new games.
So exactly what will the next Monster Hunter game be about after Monster Hunter Wilds? Will it be a direct sequel? Or just another game within the same world? Only time will tell.
