PC players join the hunt when Monster Hunter World Arrives Next Month!

PC players wait will finally be over when Monster Hunter World arrives on Steam August 9th!

Monster Hunter World August

It was originally slated for release this fall but Capcom just sent out a press release confirming a release in August! I will be covering the game as much as I can!  I have played the PS4 version heavily and enjoyed every minute of it.  Monster Hunter World has become Capcom’s best selling game in company history with over 8 million games shipped.

You can check out the press release below!

In this entry, 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. A new trailer has been released today to mark the upcoming PC release which can be downloaded here.

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. 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.

Full PC specs are as follows:

The PC minimum specs are quite good. They allow someone with a budget gaming PC to easily run the game on lowest quality. In regards to the recommended specs, you don’t need a monster pc to run the game beautifully either. Will be able to do comparisons once I get the game.

I am super excited about the game and cannot wait to play it on my PC.  Are you picking this up? Let me know in the comments!
