In Monster Hunter, creatures from all walks of life coexist with mankind. The struggle to hunt or be hunted rules the world. As monster hunters, players will face a variety of quests and battle against powerful beasts either alone or with the aid of others. Players begin by creating and customizing their very own character, selecting the type of hair, face, voice, and other various features they want their monster hunter to possess.

The world continues to expand as difficult missions are successfully accomplished.
