GENRE RPG

PLATFORM PC, Nintendo Switch

PLAYERS SINGLE

Wings of Ruin is a little different from the Monster Hunter games you’re probably used to - though it’s not a drastic departure. The game places a huge emphasis on its story, is less about killing monsters and more about collecting them Pokemon style. It’s a pretty great entry to the franchise for newcomers and an equally fun treat for fans who want to experience a slightly different take on their favourite monsters.

Instead of taking the role of a hunter, Wings of Ruin puts you in the boots of a rider. Riders have found a way to bond with their monster friends and fight alongside them, rather than skin them in the endless hunt for better gear. Picture How to Train your Dragon - the premise is basically the exact same.

You play the descendant of a well-known monster rider called Red, and have to live up to their legacy within a community of riders. Things heat up when the Rathalos monster mysteriously disappears, causing mass chaos and strange events to occur in the world, like monsters turning violent and attacking the populace of a small island. You’ll have to figure out what caused the disappearance of Rathalos and the creation of these new angry monsters threatening everyone’s lives.
