Ecology Research Station
Players have a “Research Level” that increases by gathering traces of monsters, etc. As your Research Level increases, so does your Scoutflies’ abilities, such as guiding you to the next trace with fewer traces. A bestiary is also being prepared, which will fill out as your Research Level increases. The bestiary contains rewarding information such as fleshiness, weak spots, resistances, and what comes out when you destroy body parts.
A training-dedicated map where you can thoroughly practice weapon use. In addition to the weapon’s control method and combo explanations, it also displays various other information. There are barrels of various hardness that imitate the fleshiness of monsters, which you can use to check how they can be damaged. You can change your weapon at any time. Ammo-based weapons like the bowgun have unlimited supply.
Monster Hunter: World is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26. In Japan, it will only be released for PlayStation 4. A PC version is due out at a later date.
