Wild Hearts is a monster hunting action RPG developed by Omega Force and published by EA.
It is set in the fantasy world of Azuma, which is inspired by feudal Japan and is populated by once-peaceful Nature-infused beasts who are now rampaging the countryside.
We got access to an early build of Wild Hearts and played through the game's opening and first few hunts- here's what we think of the game so far.
The story for Omega Force's triple-A hunting game will take less time to complete than, say, Capcom's Monster Hunter World.
More details are also revealed about Dragon Karakuri, which can create permanent structures, and the hunting ground's various resources.
Find out more about material-gathering in the zones, the different types of available weapons and Karakuri requirements.
The seven-minute long gameplay trailer features solo and co-op combat set in Hanagasumi Hills, one of the four hunting grounds.
Omega Force also chose to maximize the performance of current-gen consoles instead of previous gen to make the world "more compelling"
Electronic Arts "contributed a great deal" to the title with "their wealth of experience" and are committed to having it reach a global audience.
Omega Force's hunting game will cost $69.99 and launch on Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC via Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
Giant Bomb's Jeff Grubb alleges it to be the "partner title" that Electronic Arts previously noted would release in the quarter ending March 31st, 2023
EA and Koei Tecmo's Monster Hunter competitor is officially called Wild Hearts, and will be revealed in full later this week.
EA has announced that it is teaming up with Koei Tecmo and Omega Force on developing and publishing what is very likely a new Toukiden game.
