Though still very much restricted to China, Monster Hunter Online is slowly but surely inching its way towards an international release. Tencent Games revealed that it was conducting a closed beta test for localization, and that we’d see beta invites for the game much later in North America and Europe. They also showcased some new trailers for the MMORPG, one with snazzy CG graphics that can be seen above.
The other trailer, thankfully, is gameplay footage and showcases just how the CryEngine 3-developed game looks. And we must say, for a Monster Hunter title and an MMO, it’s quite snazzy. It’ll still take time before we ever see the game released globally and progress is slow but at least it’s there.
Monster Hunter Online is the first game to not be developed by Capcom, with Tencent Games being backed by the publisher. It is currently only slated for the PC.
