Monster Hunter World first released on PS4 and Xbox in January 2018, going on to be released for PC in August 2018. This open world RPG allows players to take on the role as a hunter, using different weapons to define their character's skills and attributes. Players are thrust into the "New World" and are tasked with hunting monsters that appear in the world, either for research or protecting the command base known as Astera. Equipment that players get is obtained via loot from different monsters that players hunt, which when paired with the right abilities can create powerful combinations and attacks. The game supports both single player and co-op where up to four players can play together.
