This leviathan uses its serpentine body to slither through the normally impassible jagged landscape with ease. The Balahara secretes a slick substance that allows it to greet any creature unfortunate enough to wander into its territory with a salvo slung from afar.

Ever the cunning predator, the Balahara will often burrow into the smooth desert sand and coil itself in wait, using its flexible body to create a pit of quicksand that will ensnare its prey.

The Forbidden Lands are an unforgiving region–Sparse in resources and plentiful in those competing for them. Violent clashes over territory are an everyday occurrence in the desert and not just between the titans that inhabit it.

In the released footage, a pack of Balahara can be seen attacking a large Doshaguma, and we can see a Chatacabra under attack from a group of small monsters. Yes, even small monsters can be observed defending themselves against larger predators if they feel threatened. Knowledge of this type of behavior can be used to your advantage. Be sure to keep a keen eye on your surroundings so you can act appropriately when the time comes.

Immersive, seamless connection between story and gameplay


The development team is working to craft a story unlike anything seen before in the Monster Hunter series, blending a compelling and intriguing narrative with interesting characters to meet during your journey.

Here’s a glimpse of the story told through a few cutscenes and gameplay segments.

Hunters can brandish their weapons while mounted atop their Seikret to deter an approaching pack of predators, or the Seikret can be directed to avoid monsters automatically.

The Balahara tracks down the hunter and the battle begins.

A mysterious large monster approaches…


The Windward Plains is a locale that showcases a rich and vibrant ecosystem full of monsters, contrasted by the harshness of nature. During your adventures, you’ll discover the mysteries of this land and the monsters that inhabit it.

Amongst these harsh conditions, you’ll need to be wary of the Sandtide, a violent sandstorm rife with lightning. Also in the trailer, there was a scene where a large mysterious monster was attacking a Doshaguma with lightning.
