Capcom just released a new trailer for their Wildspire Waste area of Monster Hunter: World. The area is described as a desert, peppered with swamplands. Monster Hunter: World will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2018. The PC version will follow at a later date. 

Capcom is going at it with the trailers ahead of next week's gamescom. Today we got a first look at a brand new location in Monster Hunter: World. The new area is called Wildspire Waste. The location will be a part of Monster Hunter: World, which is due for an early 2018 release.

Monster Hunter: World is an action RPG series that puts you in the boots of a hunter. While occupying said boots, you'll be "facing off against gigantic monsters in magnificent, lush environments".

As a hunter (in the boots), you'll go on quests to hunt monsters in a variety of habitats. The quests work like every other quest in an RPG: kill monster, get reward, use reward to power up and kill bigger monsters. In a word, fun.

Well, Capcom wants you to know that you'll have a variety of environments to kill monsters in, the latest being Wildspire Waste. According to them, it's a "massive, mostly dry expanse with swamplands".

Monster Hunter: World's environments will not only feature meek prey, there are also scary predators just waiting to steal your boots. The monsters. 

Most of the creatures have names, of course. One of them is Kulu-Ya-Ku, a "bird like creature that is often seen stealing other monsters’ eggs from the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste". Seen in the trailer being very graceful while dropping the egg.

A returning monster fans of Monster Hunter series will recognise is the giant Barroth. It can be found "marking its territory with mud as it wanders in search of its favourite snack - ants". Of course, Barroth will charge you if you step foot into its territory, especially if you're wearing your dirty boots.

Monster Hunter: World will be at the Sony Consumer Booth in Hall 7 at gamescom, just waiting for you to check it out. The game will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2018. The PC version will follow at a later date.
