A New Map for 4th CBT
As the 2nd desert-themed scene in Monster Hunter Online, the map is located in the desert at Ditter. There are countless looming dangers behind the vast land. As an elite hunter, are you ready?
Several New Modes, Including Overwater Fight
Besides normal hunting mode, Monster Hunter Online will add several new modes, such as the airship battle, the hunting ground system etc. Moreover, the "overwater fight" will also be added in this CBT. We don't know much about the system now but it does sound interesting. As Tencent states, it will be a break though for Monster Hunter Online.
Auction & Title System
Monster Hunter Online optimizes the original systems in Monster Hunter series. Not only that, Tencent added new systems in the online version, such as the auction & title systems. Hunters can trade not soul-binded items with others through auction house while various titles can give hunters some buff.
