Welcome to the New World, Hunters!
The newest installment in the Monster Hunter series has caused quite a stir, becoming quite popular with both new and old players. As someone who has enjoyed the series since 2006, I have made this guide in order to help those who are starting their journey in the New World.
I hope you take the time to enjoy yourself; get a feel for the game, the environment and the challenging beasts you will be facing. Now then, without further ado, let’s start!
Part 1: The Monsters
The stars of the series. It wouldn’t be a monster hunter game without monsters (seriously, they are part of the title). All of these fantastic beasts have their own behaviors, weaknesses and patterns that are just waiting to be discovered.
The main objective of this game is to take down these vicious foes and craft equipment from their parts. Sounds a bit morbid, but such is the way of life. Equipment from one monster might give you an advantage over the next, while also making you extremely vulnerable to others.
It is up to your discretion on how to approach each hunt or quest. Thankfully, the game wont throw you into the jaws of the most powerful beasts, but don’t let your guard down; each of these critters will provide a unique challenge that you must overcome. Patience, preparation and adaptation will be your key to survival!
Next week I’ll talk about weapons and the elements of battle.
