The kill-and-craft subgenre of action-RPG pioneered by Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has achieved great popularity as of late, thanks in large part to Monster Hunter: World and indie darling Dauntless, and now it appears that NetEase and Yoozoo Games are looking to expand the genre to mobile platforms with Rangers of Oblivion. In the game, players take on the role of the titular rangers, who are charged with defending the land of Malheim from savage creatures — and of course using those creatures’ parts to craft new armor and weapons.
Gameplay footage of the upcoming title shows a clear Monster Hunter influence, with groups of four players wielding a variety of different weapons squaring off against massive monsters. The footage also shows off a variety of non-combat activities in which players will be able to take part, such as fishing and horse-taming. Rangers of Oblivion is slated to launch on Android and iOS on January 14th, but in the meantime, you can check out the latest gameplay trailers just below.
