Sony unveiled a new trailer during its Tokyo Game Show conference on Tuesday for Capcom's upcoming Monster Hunter: World game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The trailer reveals the game's simultaneous worldwide launch date of January 26 for the PS4 and Xbox One, and also reveals a new monster named Nergigante.
Capcom also revealed the game's Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector's Edition versions.
The Digital Deluxe Edition comes with the Samurai Set armor, three additional gestures, two additional sticker sets, an additional face paint, and additional hair style.
The Collector's Edition contains everything from the Digital Deluxe Edition, and also includes a Nergigante figure, a download code for the game's soundtrack, and the "Monster Designs" art book.
Those who pre-order any edition of the game will receive a download code for the Origin Armor set and Fair Wind charm. In addition, digital pre-orders will also get an exclusive PS4 theme.
The PC release will follow after the game's console release.
The new game will be an open world game that will no longer have the previous games' loading screens in between areas, and will thus no longer allow players to use zone transitions as safe zones. The game will have a "living ecosystem" that will allow players to use and destroy elements of the environment, and use monster behaviors against other monsters.
Capcom's latest Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter XX, shipped in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on March 18, and shipped for the Nintendo Switch console on August 25. Capcom's Monster Hunter Stories role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS shipped in Japan in October 2016, and it will arrive in the West this fall.
