Monster Hunter: World’s Elder Dragons look spectacular

Plus, you’ll get one more chance to try the beta

Capcom offered some new details on Monster Hunter: World today, including a look at some of the game’s new and returning Elder Dragons and the first piece of free downloadable content.

As seen in a new trailer posted above, Monster Hunter fans will face some big, bad dragons on their adventures. From Capcom:

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.

Monster Hunter: World’s first piece of DLC will see the return of Deviljho, who can be seen at the end of Capcom’s Elder Dragons trailer.

Curious hunters will have one more chance to try out Monster Hunter: World thanks to a final beta test, which will be playable for all PlayStation 4 owners in North America from Jan. 18-22. The final beta will include the previously released Great Jagras, Anjanath and Barroth quests, as well as a battle against Nergigante.

Check out a fresh batch of Monster Hunter: World screenshots in the gallery below. The game comes to PS4 and Xbox One on Jan. 26. A PC version is planned for fall.
