Monster Hunter Online Free-To-Play Game Has Both Old And New Monsters


Capcom have teamed up with Tencent Games to develop Monster Hunter Online, a Monster Hunter game for the PC targeted at China. Monster Hunter Online, unlike the other games in the series, is built using Crytek’s CryEngine 3. You can watch a trailer for it below:



Monster Hunter Online will be different from traditional Monster Hunter games in that it’s a free-to-play title. Note that the game is not the same game as Monster Hunter Frontier, which is a separate online Monster Hunter game for PC and Xbox 360 in Japan.


Siliconera reached out to Capcom to ask if there are plans to bring Monster Hunter Online to other territories, to which the publisher replied: “No announcements have been made beyond the game’s development for China.”
