Monster Hunter: World Arrives on Steam August 9th

After having been confined to consoles since its release Monster Hunter: World is coming to PC. Unlike most game timelines, this game actually got bumped up earlier than expected. Originally slated for Fall 2018, this game will now release on August 9th, 2018. The latest entry in the Monster Hunter Series, in this installment

players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. In Monster Hunter: World, follow the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. As hunters set out on their quests, the Commission’s sights are set on Zorah Magdaros, a colossal elder dragon that rises from the earth like a volcano.

Future updates will add new content and gameplay features. Updates and fixes made in other platform versions will be gradually applied to the PC version.

One of the most notable aspects of this port “the Event Quest schedule will differ from other platforms so fans should stay tuned to official Capcom channels for more details on additional content release dates.” Sometimes it can feel like the difference between platforms is nothing at all but having different schedules is a fun way to differentiate things. Many Monster Hunter fans praise this title for its visual beauty and well done presentation so players with a really elaborate rig are in for a great experience.
