Come January 2018, get ready to start the year as a monster hunter as Capcom has announced that it will be releasing Monster Hunter: World globally.

Considered as Capcom’s most anticipated title release to date, Monster Hunter: World will offer a true, next- generation experience built around the core gameplay formula of the franchise. This includes a vast open-world map with seamless navigation, intense battles with monsters at a furious 60fps rate.

For veteran monster hunters, all fourteen weapon archetypes will be returning from the previous titles of Monster Hunter 4 and Monster Hunter Generations. Players will be able to build and reinforce their chosen hunter weapons through looting, materials from slain monsters and acquire unique weapons from completing quests. Expect grinding to be tedious and dangerous as the game will require you to explore maps riddled with stronger monsters as you venture deeper into the unknown.

Monster Hunter: World will allow for four player cooperation and players from all over the world will be able to team up on monster hunts.

The title will release in January 26, 2018 for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version release date will be announced at a later date.

The newly announced Digital Deluxe Edition for North America is MSRP $69.99 and includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter.
