Japanese video game developer Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World is a popular role-playing game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game was released on Microsoft Windows as well. This action game will be coming in a completely new form. According to reports, Monster Hunter: World will be incorporated into a board game by Steamforged games with a Kickstarter campaign next year. Kickstarter is a platform that helps in starting a project belonging to any professional sphere.
According to reports, the adaptation of Monster Hunter: World into a board game will be backed by a Kickstarter campaign in 2021. In addition to this, the pricing of the board game will be somewhere close to 100 dollars. Rathalos, a monster character, has been a part of the Monster Hunter games since the first part, and Steamforged will leave no stone unturned in creating a perfect plastic model of the most famous monster. The board game will be based on cooperative gameplay, just like the video game.
Unusual for Open-Ended Experience Video Game to be Adapted into Board Game
It will be unusual for an open-ended experience video game to be made into a video game, but the maker’s approach to this project will be very unique. All those who are a part of the board game will be able to fight monsters on the board and change their weapons at the end of an expedition. The best part is that even though the game will be played on a board, each weapon will have its own specific and unique attacks. The board game will stay true to the video game and give you the feeling of a video game environment wherein you go on to find a beast and defeat it in intense combat.
A Trip to an Unpopulated Land Mass Filled with Monsters
In the game, the characters go to the New World, an unpopulated land mass filled with monsters. The character is a part of a research commission tasked with studying the land from their central command, Astera. The players have to kill or trap monsters to protect their base or study them. The hunter’s weapon is selected from a range of 14 archetypes. You can either get a sword, hammer, bow, etc.
The selection of your weapon will determine the combat moves and abilities of your character. It all depends on how you match your armor and weapon to progress in the game. Simple equipment can be purchased from the in-game money, but most of it you will get from loot boxes by killing or trapping monsters, rewards from completing quests, or collecting items while roaming on the unpopulated landmass.
Monster Hunter: World- a Exciting Narrative in the Form of a Video Game
The story of Monster Hunter: World revolves around a player controlling a hunter. In the game, the hunter’s character has the task of finding monsters to either trap or kill them. Also, the hunter will see these monsters roaming in either one of the numerous fictional environmental spaces. If you win the battle, you will receive rewards such as elements used to make a suitable gear and armor to hunt down monsters. Gamers can either play the game alone or up to 4 via the game’s online multiplayer mode. The game’s installment received a lot of appreciation upon its release because the makers decided to increase its accessibility to new players and Western countries.
