Monster Hunter World Confirmed PC Release Date

Monster Hunter: World is one of our most anticipated games of 2018 and it launches in a couple of weeks in January! For console players… But don’t worry they haven’t forgotten about the master race. A PC build has been announced by Capcom to arrive sometime this “autumn”. Considerably later than its console counterparts but better than never.

Monster Hunter World is due to launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 26th. A PC version was confirmed for release when the game was first revealed at E3 last year, but Capcom has been notably vague on its status since then.

However, the publisher has now, finally, offered an update, revealing that Monster Hunter World “is currently being optimized for PC and is planned for an Autumn 2018 release”.

In a video message, Monster Hunter Worlds producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, thanked PC players for their patience, noting that more details would be revealed “later”. Tsujimoto also reiterated that the game’s console launch will be followed by a number of free updates, adding the likes of new monsters, “so you’ve got lots to look forward to”.

Monster Hunter World will take players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing terrain. Retaining the series’ skill-based progression and robust crafting system, players gear up to venture on quests to seek and slay monsters, progressively improving their skills to become the ultimate hunter. Loot collected from fallen foes can be used to create new equipment and armor upgrades styled after the monsters they’ve slain, allowing hunters to survive the elements and defeat the tougher opponents that await them.
