Monster Hunter Online coming to China from Tencent

Tencent will publish Capcom's new MonHon MMO

Tencent and Capcom have announced Monster Hunter Online, a new free-to-play MMO coming to China. Tencent will publish and operate the title in the region. Monster Hunter Online is a new game, not to be confused with Monster Hunter Frontier Online, which was released for Xbox 360 and PC in Japan back in 2010.

The title was built using Crytek's CryEngine3. Open beta for Monster Hunter Online is scheduled to begin in June and there's been no word of release outside of China.

Youtube user luferhyz posted the announcement trailer for the title, featuring the same gameplay the Monster Hunter series is known for.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
