Last week it was revealed that Nexon’s Project DH is named Dragon Hound and that it will be showcased in Nexon’s line-up of games for this year’s G-Star convention. Now we finally have solid gameplay footage of the new monster hunting game. If you have yet to hear about G-Star, it is an enormous game show convention in South Korea that takes place every year for several days where game companies like Nexon reveal many of their new works. G-Star 2018 began on November 15th and will continue through November 18th.
The gameplay footage below shows what appears to be a tutorial level gameplay set in a futuristic fantasy world with large vehicular mechanisms and overgrown beasts. Several players can be seen hunting dragons and wyverns with gattling guns, cannons, and other long-range weapons that are mounted on horses. Combat appears to be mainly long-range with enemies mostly attacking from afar like flying dragons shooting large balls of fire.
Nexon’s mounted combat MMO called Dragon Hound, previously only known as ‘Project DH’ will be making an appearance in this year’s G-Star event. G-Star 2018 is a large game show convention in South Korea that takes place every year. Dragon Hound was first introduced two years ago in G-Star 2016. The game uses Unreal Engine 4 and is developed by DevCat, the same folks behind Vindictus.
Initially revealed at the 2016 G-star event, Nexon’s and Devcat’s Project DH is set in a steampunk themed world where giant beasts are ravaging humanity’s dominions. Players set out to hunt these monsters together with their mounts. Not much is known about the game as of now, but we know that it is currently in development for PC with a mobile version planned for a future release.
The video below offers a 16 second glimpse of the mounted combat gameplay of Project DH. At this time, there is no release date and no announcement of a release plan for Western regions.
