The birth child of the collaboration between Tencent Games and Capcom, below is the first look at Monster Hunter Online, all using in-game assets. This CryEngine 3 masterpiece will enter its first beta phase in June.
Yoshinori Ono, the producer of Street Fighter IV, was present at the announcement event giving a speech, asking China players to communicate with him via his Weibo account (China version of Facebook + Twitter). He is apparently the producer of the game as well.
Unfortunately, the CEO of Capcom was unable to make it to the event in China, and thus spoke of his confidence of the game succeeding under Tencent’s watch via a pre-recorded video, since above.
As mentioned, this new entry in the franchise is developed using CryEngine 3. Only the sword and shield combo is listed now, with more weapons to be revealed soon. I am not sure if this is new, but every weapon set will have its own unique “ultimate skill” in the game. Even more screenshots here!
