Today Monster Hunter World Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto showcased a ton of new PS4 gameplay during a Sony Interactive Entertainment stage event at Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong, that kicked off yesterday.

While the gameplay showcases the same demo that has been shown before, there are plenty of new elements to enjoy.

First of all, we get to see a female hunter. In previous events the character model was always male. We also see the Anja armor (made from materials salvaged from the Anjanath) on a female character. Gotta say, it looks quite sexy for those who enjoy a bit of fanservice. On top of that, we see the Ingot armor and the Vault armor set.

Looking at weapon, we take a look at Dual Blades, Insect Glaive, Switch Axe and Light Bowgun in action.

You can check it out for yourself below (both a recording with just the gameplay, and the full video of the show), If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a series of trailers showcasing all fourteen weapons included in the gamethe full recording of the San Diego Comic Con panel with a ton of info and footage, the announcement trailerthe first screenshots, and some really impressive direct feed gameplay.

Monster Hunter World will release in early 2018 (before March 31st, to be a bit more precise) for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release following at a later time.
