Monster Hunter World is set to launch later this month but before the game launches, Capcom has planned another Monster Hunter World Beta, however, this beta is exclusive to PlayStation 4.
The news comes from Twitter user ‘黒凧 BlackKite’ who revealed that Monster Hunter World beta will start on 19 January 2018 and will continue until 22 January 2018 and will be exclusive to PlayStation 4.
According to him, the upcoming beta for Monster Hunter World will feature a new monster for players to take on along with 3 monsters featured in the previous beta.
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
Furthermore, Capcom has also confirmed the PC release window of Monster Hunter World. According to game producer Royozo Tsujimoto, the game will launch for PC in Autumn. He added that the game is being properly optimized for PC but that will take time and that is the reason why the game will be released in Autumn.
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”.
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.
