These immersive ecosystems are populated with wildlife acclimated to their environment, including smaller monsters like Dalthydon, a herbivorous wyvern that migrates seasonally, and Ceratonoth, which relies on males to protect the herd from raging storms with well-developed dorsal horns that They serve as lightning rods.

Of course, great monsters also roam the Windy Plains, including Doshaguma. Although huge and territorial, these fanged beasts are sometimes seen curiously stalking the plains in aggressive packs. Meanwhile, the formidable Chatacabra amphibian uses its environment and its adhesive saliva to become an even stronger adversary by armoring its body with natural materials such as minerals.

New game, new mechanics to explore

To help hunters meet the challenges that await them in Monster Hunter Wilds, the series' beloved gameplay has evolved with an arsenal of new features. Players will enjoy a seamless flow between plot and gameplay sequences.

To navigate the vast environments of this world, the game introduces Seikrets, a new type of mount. These agile creatures can guide their riders to their destinations and allow hunters to perform actions on the fly, such as sharpening weapons, gathering materials, and swinging the sling. Hunters can also switch to a secondary weapon with their Seikret, allowing hunts to adapt to changing field conditions without having to return to base.

Additionally, the game introduces completely new systems, such as Focus Mode, which gives hunters more precise control when aiming, protecting themselves, and attacking monsters' weak points. The new Sling Hook also gives hunters additional abilities, such as contextual actions and the power to collect items from a distance, even when mounted on their Seikret.
