Monster Hunter Wilds Has Cross-Play Support, New Trailer Shows More Monsters

Capcom has revealed even more gameplay footage of Monster Hunter Wilds at Summer Game Fest 2024, after a big reveal a few weeks back during the May 2024 State Of Play showcase.

The publisher and developer has now revealed that the upcoming title will support cross-platform play (cross-play) across PS5, PC and Xbox Series X|S. This is the first for the series.

The previous game in the series, Monster Hunter Rise only supported cross-play within the same console family (PS4/PS5, Xbox One/Xbox Series). Monster Hunter World was released in 2018, before cross-play became a normal thing to expect out of multiplayer games, before Fortnite popularised and normalised the concept.

The new trailer shows more new monsters that players will be hunting in the previously revealed biome, Windward Plains. Balahara (Leviathan species) can be seen slithering through the sand and secreted black goop and create quicksand trap. The larger monster is the Doshaguma, where multiple Balaharas were attacking it- which also means monsters will fight other monsters just like in previous games.

There is one other larger monster, with the lightning attacks. Though Capcom is not namedropping who that is yet.

While most players would just want to go hunt monsters to get materials to build weapons and gear to hunt other monsters out of Monster Hunter game, Wilds will also feature a rich story as we see more plot points featuring the cast of characters, in particular the boy Nata.

More Monster Hunter Wilds news will appear at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2024 this August. The game will also be playable at Gamescom 2024’s show floor.

Monster Hunter Wilds will be out in 2025 for the PS5, PC (Steam) and Xbox Series X|S.
