Monster Hunter World beta will start next month and will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive and now Capcom has revealed the content for Monster Hunter World Beta. According to Capcom, the beta will feature 3 monsters, 2 maps, and players will be to play it either solo or in 4 player co-op.
The maps featured in Monster Hunter World Beta will be Great Forest map and Wildspire Waste. As for the monsters, players will face GJagras, Anjanath in the Great Forest map while the Barroth will be present in Wildspire Waste.
In related news, Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter World will not feature loot boxes or microtransactions. According to series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and game director Yuuya Tokuda, the game already features randomized loot and including loot boxes will not make any sense.
I think that Monster Hunter has already built that kind of randomized, item reward into the gameplay. You’ve already kind of got loot as a core gameplay aspect without having to shove a microtransaction version of it in. We want people to have the experience that we’ve made for them rather than the option to skip the experience.
Not only the game will not feature any microtransactions but, the DLC will also be free for the game. Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto confirmed that Monster Hunter World DLC will be free like it always has been in the franchise saying “We will continue to release free quests as we always have”.
He also added that console players will have to sign up for console-specific online services if they wish to play online with their friends. He also explained why players will be required to sign-up.
Monster Hunter World is scheduled to launch on January 26, 2018, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and the game will launch for PC at a later date.
