Playing the Monster Hunter: World beta this weekend, are you? Well, if you're not quite hyped to give Capcom's creature-slaying test run a shot, then we'd recommend watching this new trailer.

The three-minute video gives us a better idea of what to expect from the game's story. Yes, you'll be spending most of your time taking out beasts and forging the perfect set of equipment, but Capcom's keen to remind us that the title does indeed have a proper narrative, complete with cutscenes and gruff looking characters.

We're also treated to some stunning environmental shots, as well as a bit of action. The best part of all this is when you remember Monster Hunter: World launches next month. 

Now it just has to live up to our lofty expectations.
