Monster Hunter Online Gets Recommended Hardware Specs, Screenshots and a Farting Baboon

by on June 7, 2013 11:08 PM 8

Tencent announced that the first beta test of Monster Hunter Online for the Chinese market will begin on June the 28, and together with the announcement we finally got to know the hardware specs recommended to play the game smoothly:

  • Intel Core Duo 2.4 Ghz CPU
  • 4Gb RAM
  • NVidia GeForce GTS 250, 512 Mb video card
  • Windows XP/Vista/7/8 operating system
  • DirectX 9.0c

Those are definitely rather low specs considering the visual fidelity of the game, ensuring that even the PCs that aren’t exactly top notch will be able to grant a good experience.

We also got the reveal of another of the game’s alpha monsters: the iconic Congalala.

The Congalala will come with its signature Jet Stream attack. If you ever played a Monster Hunter game besides the first you probably know what it is. Basically it will fart noxious gases right in your face. Not pretty.

Despite its questionable social habits the Congalala is a proud beast, and when its fur is ruined  he will go into a  Reckless Rage that will prompt a series of violent attacks on the unfortunate hunters that caused the disruption. After finishing the attack it’ll waste some time combing his fur again.

Killer Belly Flop does exactly what it says on the tin. The Congalala will jump high and then smash down belly-first on its enemies causing terrible impact damage. Finally Belly Assault causes the overgrown monkey to inflate its belly with air making it impervious to attack as he charges straight at its enemies.

Below you can see a series of new screenshots, including five portraying the Congalala itself.

    looking great. Better than any of Capcom’s outings graphically.

    Hopefully the game will be just as good. Though I doubt we’ll get the chance to see

      Considering the fact that it’s a PC game, I’d say they should focus on bringing it to western PCs before thinking about other platforms.

        People say it’s coming, people say it isn’t… Do you know if we’re going to get this game in the west or not?

          At the moment there’s no official info. The initial announcement from Crytek proved to be a blunder on their part, which is why some people say it’s coming.
