Wild Hearts, the new monster hunting multiplayer title from EA and Omega Force has launched today, bringing crossplatform play to PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

Wild Hearts is a new take on the monster hunting genre made popular by, well, Monster Hunter. Developed by Koei Tecmo and Omega Force, who are best known for the Dynasty Warriors series, Wild Hearts transports players to Azuma, a world that is hugely inspired by feudal Japan.

Players will spend their days hunting Kemono, beasts that were once peaceful but now spend their time rampaging the landscape. 

Via the game's Steam listing:

"No one remembers why the Kemono began their rampage through a once-prosperous Azuma. Fueled by desperation, they wield the power of primal nature at its most destructive. For a while, it seemed that none could stand against their overwhelming might. But hope arrives in the form of a formidable hunter armed with deadly weapons and ancient technology called Karakuri that could turn the tide of battle."

Wild Hearts is available across PC (via Steam, EA Play/Origin and the Epic Games Store), as well as Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5. The monster hunting game features full cross play between all platforms, but it should be noted it does not include cross progress or cross save. This means you won't be able to buy multiple versions and carry your progress over, but if you and a friend on different platforms want to slay Kemono together, you're able.

We're working on our review right now and should have more in the coming days. In the meantime, check out Wild Hearts' Steam page for more info.
