In Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, you and your friends will take on the role of hunters who (as in the video game) follow the Scoutflies and then get stuck into massive showdowns with huge and terrifying monsters. Explore the Ancient Forest or Wildspire Wastes (via an expansion), gathering resources and crafting items and weapons which can be used to bring down these titanic beasts.

You can get a look at some of the monsters that you will be hunting as part of a campaign-style game. Perhaps you might find yourself going up against the massive Anjanath...

...or face down the winged Rathalos which is going to mean you need to employ entirely different tactics.

A game like this needs a sense of scale and grandeur and this seems to be baked into the miniature design especially here. These imposing challenges can be utterly massive with the largest miniature being 315mm tall, 250mm wide and 210mm long!

Monster Hunter World: The Board Game Pledge Options

Steamforged Games has revealed each of the pledge options that are open to those backing the campaign in April.

More details are to be revealed in the coming weeks and months leading up to the campaign but they have already said that as the pledges grow in size you're effectively unlocking a larger campaign for you and your friends. The Entry Pledge is thirty hours, Core Pledge is sixty hours and finally, the All-In Pledge comes in at seventy-five hours.

Much like other Kickstarter games of its ilk, this means that if this is the game that you're going to be playing, it should keep you going for many, many sessions. Obviously, the proof is in the pudding though and it will be down to the mechanics and the moment-to-moment gameplay to really bring this one home, especially for the higher end pledges.

I'm sure if you're a Monster Hunter World fan then this will have already caught your eye!
