This demo includes the full version of the opening movie, and allows you to try out three quests with all the Hunting Styles and Weapon Types (including the two new Hunting Styles):

  • the Yian Kut-Ku (found in the Ancient Jungle), Easy
  • the Barroth (found in the Desert), Normal

The time limit for all three quests is 25 minutes. Once you’ve cleared a quest, the completion time is displayed on the screen: you can try and replay the quest in order to beat your best time!
