Koei Tecmo and Omega Force have recently announced a new game that will be published by Electronic Arts: Wild Heartsa Monster Hunter-style video game that will also allow you to play in cooperative as is typical for the genre. However, the maximum number of users per session will be three, instead of a more classic four. The reason? In four, the game would be too easy.
In an interview with IGN USA, the director Takuto Edagawa stated that the four-player cooperative mode would make the game too easy due to the power of Karakuri, or the ancient technology that allows hunters to create structures in an instant that are useful to face the powerful beasts that populate the game world. According to Edagawa, the three-player co-op will ensure that Wild Heart maintains a sense of tension.
“We originally planned to have four players play cooperatively,” revealed the director. “However, during development, we realized that, due to the power of the Karakuri, three-player combat offers the best balance to maintain the sense of tension and cooperative combat. We also took into consideration the fact that it is easier to bring three players together. ”
Wild Hearts will be released on February 17, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and PC, meaning it will not arrive on PS4 and Xbox One. Here because.
