The vast environments of the video game ‘Monster Hunter: World’ are home to incredible forms of life — from thundering behemoths to ravenous hunters. While the game focuses on battling monsters, every creature on this continent has a life of their own, with unique day-to-day patterns, biological intricacies, and roles within the larger ecosystems.
