Monster Hunter World for PC Gets August Release Date and PC Requirements

Capcom finally revealed when PC gamers will be able to enjoy the critically acclaimed hunting action RPG Monster Hunter World.

Today Capcom announced the release date and more details about the PC version of Monster Hunter World. 

The game is already available for pre-purchase on Steam and will release closer than many anticipated, on August 9th. Two editions will come, including a standard edition for $59.99, and a Digital Deluxe edition currently discounted 6% at $70.48.

The Digital Deluxe Edition includes the following (which you can see below in the gallery):

  • Samurai Set
    Layered armor sets will change the look of your armor without changing the properties underneath. Equip this Samurai set over your favorite armor to take on the striking appearance of a feudal Japanese samurai warrior!
    Note : No weapons are included with this set
  • Gesture: Zen
  • Gesture: Ninja Star
  • Gesture: Sumo Slap
    Enjoy three new amusing gestures you can use when interacting with other players in the game.
  • Sticker Set: MH All-Stars Set
  • Sticker Set: Sir Loin Set
    Fun stickers you can use when chatting with other players in the game.
  • Face Paint: Wyvern
    Add a new face paint for character customisation in Monster Hunter: World.
  • Hairstyle: Topknot
    Adds a new hairstyle for character customisation in Monster Hunter: World.

Pre-purchasing the game will net you more goodies:

  • Origin Set
    The Origin Set armor is a nostalgic must-have for series fans.
    This full armor set (head, chest, arms, waist, and legs) comes with enough defense to carry you through the early quests, and also features plenty of skills useful for gathering.
  • Fair Wind Charm
    The Fair Wind charm carries a skill that increases your attack power, and one that adds a chance of reducing the damage you take. The charm also has a nice visual impact, as equipping it will add a glowing aura effect to your left arm!
