Who are the ferocious Elder Dragons introduced in today’s Monster Hunter World trailer? And who’s waiting in the wings to attack later this spring?
Capcom showed off some of the new monsters MHW players will be facing during their livestream in Japan early this morning. Here’s what the dragons do and what makes them dangerous:
The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Another monster introduced in the trailer is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.
That’s not all either. There is a fourth dragon, Deviljho, who will appear later as DLC and shows up at the end of the trailer. If the name rings a bell, Deviljho appeared in an earlier Monster Hunter game.
Before Monster Hunter World comes out, there will be one final beta test, which will occur for Playstation 4 players in North America from the 18th to the 22nd of this month. The full game will be released January 26th for Playstation 4 and XBox One.
