There will be several monsters available to hunt while exploring the new Jungle map in the demo.

Aside from the hunts, there will be Training Quests that can be undertaken, proving especially useful for new hunters, but will also serve as a prompt refresher for returning players. Specifically, the tutorial on the new Switch Skill Swap mechanic is one to play for everyone.

The demo can be played solo or in multiplayer. For those itching to get a taste of what's to come, it's just the thing to download and shake off the rust. Happy hunting!
