Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy Comes to Monster Hunter World in New Trailer

In a treat to PlayStation fans, Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy will be coming as a playable character for Monster Hunter World.

October 30, 2017

Very few people are more excited for us regarding Monster Hunter World’s upcoming release, but developer Capcom just made the game far more enticing to PlayStation fans. In a brand new trailer debuted at Sony’s Paris Games Week 2017 Press Conference, it was revealed that Aloy — the protagonist to one of 2017’s best games, Horizon Zero Dawn — will be a playable character exclusive to the PlayStation version of Monster Hunter World.

Seen in the trailer below, Aloy takes on her signature outfit as she tackles dragons and other monsters — that, frankly, aren’t too much bigger than the ones she would take on in her own game. With that said, the fit seems natural — given that Capcom has added various characters from other game series in the past.


Monster Hunter World will be making its way to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 26, 2018. With that said, you can only grab this playable character on the PlayStation version. Make sure to check out Aloy — in all her glory — in the newly revealed trailer below:
