Monster Hunter: World Game Launches for PC This Fall

Game launches on PS4, Xbox One on January 26

The official YouTube channel for the Monster Hunter series began streaming on Wednesday an update video revealing that Capcom plans to launch its Monster Hunter: World game for PC this fall. The video also reveals that the game will receive free updates, including new monsters, following its worldwide launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26.

The game will be available in Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector's Edition versions.

The Digital Deluxe Edition will come with the Samurai Set armor, three additional gestures, two additional sticker sets, an additional face paint, and additional hair style.

The Collector's Edition will contain everything from the Digital Deluxe Edition and will also include a Nergigante figure, a download code for the game's soundtrack, and the "Monster Designs" art book.

People who pre-order any edition of the game will receive a download code for the Origin Armor set and Fair Wind charm. In addition, digital pre-orders will get an exclusive PS4 theme.

The new game will be an open world game that will no longer have the previous games' loading screens in between areas, and will thus no longer allow players to use zone transitions as safe zones. The game will have a "living ecosystem" that will allow players to use and destroy elements of the environment, and use monster behaviors against other monsters.

Capcom's latest Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter XX, shipped in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS last March, and shipped for the Nintendo Switch console last August. Capcom's Monster Hunter Stories role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS shipped in Japan in October 2016, and it shipped in the West last September.
