Monster Hunter World will be rolling out for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this month and Capcom has now confirmed the game’s PC release window. According to Capcom, Monster Hunter World PC release window is autumn 2018. While PC version didn’t have any release date to begin with but such a long delay is unexpected.
The announcement for Monster Hunter World PC release comes from the game’s producer Royozo Tsujimoto. According to the producer, Monster Hunter World is being properly optimized for PC but that will take time and that is the reason why the game will be released in Autumn.
Capcom has also 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 an open-world action adventure game developed by Capcom and is scheduled to launch on January 26, 2018, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and the PC version will launch later this year.
