Monster Hunter World PC launch date and system requirements announced

Monster Hunter World PC

Capcom has officially announced the Monster Hunter World PC launch date. The game which was launched for the PS4 and Xbox earlier this year, will arrive on August 9th on PC.

This is the first game in the main series, to be released for Windows. Monster Hunter World is a third-person open world RPG game, similar to the Elder Scrolls, The Witcher, and in a way to Capcom’s own Dragon’s Dogma (except you play with a solo character).

The game does not use a traditional attributes and skills system. Instead, everything depends on the character’s gear and weapons. The crafting system in Monster Hunter World depends on the loot which you get from monsters that you slay, exploring, and completing quests.

Monster Hunter World PC

Monster Hunter World PC is available for pre-order on Steam for $60. Pre-order bonuses include the Origin Set armor and a Fair Wind charm. There is a Deluxe version available with some cosmetic bonuses.

Hopefully this will provide for a great experience until Assassin’s Creed Odyssey arrives, followed by Just Cause 4.
