New Monster Hunter World trailer features the return of the Elder Dragons

Capcom has released a new trailer for its upcoming online title Monster Hunter World which focuses on the powerful Elder Dragons that players will be able to challenge and also teases the game’s first post-launch update.

According to a press release from Capcom which accompanied the trailer, there will be three different Elder Dragons in Monster Hunter World at launch, and none of them will be pushovers:

“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.”

Along with the trailer, the press release also announced that Monster Hunter World will be getting one last beta period from January 18-22 ahead of its full January 26 launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (the game will also be coming to PC later this year). As for Monster Hunter World’s first post-launch update, it will be coming at some point in the Spring, 2018 season and will add in the fan favorite monster Deviljho for players to find and battle. You can catch a glimpse of Deviljho at the end of the below trailer.
