Whether it's fighting giant monsters, crafting epic equipment, or enjoying beautiful vistas, Monster Hunter has it all, and a trial version for players to experience is live in Europe.
We've held our breaths when the first installment of the Monster Hunter saga was announced in more modern days. Luckily for us, the developers have more than delivered on that promise, and there is more to come.
The trial version for Monster Hunter Stories 2 is going live today, June 25, in Europe.
Fans from more eastern locations on the globe, such as Australia and Japan, have had nothing but praise for the game, of course taking into account its, yet, unpolished nature. Quite a few of them described the game as a Disney movie in which you are the main role, and thus get to choose what audience it's made for.
One thing to note though is, as mentioned before, the game is in trial for a reason. So some lags, framerate drops, rendering problems are to be expected, and this is exactly what trial versions are for, so do not be discouraged or disappointed. All progress made, though, will be transferable to the main game.
For those of us who are interested, yet have not been up to date on the game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, as is its full name, is a spinoff in the Monster Hunter series. As the official site states, you play as the grandson of Red, a legendary Rider. The story begins with a fateful encounter with Ena, a Wyverian girl who has been entrusted with an egg with the potential to hatch into a legendary Rathalos which could wreak havoc if awakened to its destructive power.
The plot may sound cliche, but there is a reason cliches have become exactly that. If executed correctly, they are a timeless classic which is sure to bring us through an emotional, as well as action-packed, adventure.
The worldwide release is set for July 9, 2021.
