Game features

Character shooting at ferocious beast

A new world

Take on the role of a hunter venturing into a new continent where you track down and slay ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles. Strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to your advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present. As a hunter, you must use your cunning and skill to track and manoeuvre your targets throughout the intense, evolving battles.

Players teaming up to take down beasts

Cooperative multiplayer

Team up with up to three other hunters and cooperate to take down any threat. With flexible new online drop-in functionality, you can start your quests solo and simply hail for assistance from the worldwide group during quests when your targets are too daunting to take on single-handedly.
