Wild Hearts – Video shows seven minutes of gameplay from the hunting game

With Wild Hearts, we should get a genuine Monster Hunter alternative from the EA Originals program on February 17 next year for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, from which games like It Takes Two and Unravel have already escaped.

Only a few days after the action-adventure was announced, the first connected gameplay of the hunting game can be seen today, which already shows the special trick of the game: In Wild Hearts we don’t just thrash monsters with the katana, we have to gain a tactical advantage on the battlefield with special structures.

Buildings against huge monsters

In the gameplay video, which lasts a good seven minutes, we now see the fight against a wild boar Kemono. Kemono, FYI, simply translates to the Japanese name for the huge beasts we fight in Wild Hearts.

Buildings for locomotion in the game world: As you can see in the video, we use, among other things, a self-built rope pull to get to higher places. If we then have to go downhill again, we get a wooden propeller glider from the inventory.

With the glider we move over the Asian-inspired game world.

However, the main purpose of the mechanical devices is in the fight against the Kemono and we can now get a first impression of what that looks like in detail.

Catapults, Jumppads and more: To give us an advantage in battle and deal more damage from above, jump devices are placed, among other things. We can also keep the beasts away from us with built walls or place stone catapults on the battlefield for extra damage.

How smoothly all of this plays in practice and whether we’re getting a fresh version of the Monster Hunter formula with Wild Hearts, you’ll find out from us in the coming week.

What is your first impression of Wild Hearts? Can we expect a genuine Monster Hunter alternative here?
