Monster Hunter: World is among the nine games included in the Capcom Summer 2021 Humble Bundle. It’s strange to think that the game that breathed new life into the Monster Hunter series is now four years old, but it holds up well, and if you’ve not yet had a chance to try this amazing action RPG game, now may be the ideal time to do so.
To quote our Monster Hunter: World PC review, “Monster Hunter: World is one of the finest action-RPGs ever made and a rich co-op title.” It’s a game that belongs in the collection of any gamer who is a fan of the genre, especially those who have enjoyed any the earlier Monster Hunter games.
For those who of you who are unfamiliar with Monster Hunter, let us explain the basic premise: you (and a group of friends, if you prefer multiplayer games) head out into a beautiful, sprawling fantasy world where you’re tasked with hunting down different monsters. You find clues which let you know where you can find them, before engaging them in epic battles. You gather resources from the battles, so that you can then make more weapons and items, and consequently, travel to new areas, fight new monsters, and progress the story.
If you’ve played Monster Hunter: Rise and aren’t sure whether it will be worth going back to the previous game, we still recommend giving World a try. Rise and World both follow a very similar mould in terms of gameplay, so it’ll familiar in all the right ways to Rise fans, while also giving a near endless well of new experiences.
As we said, Monster Hunter: World is just one of nine games included in this bundle. Here’s the full list of the Capcom games that you’ll get for $20 (just $2.23 each):
- Monster Hunter: World (2018)
- Devil May Cry 5 (2019)
- Devil May Cry HD Collection (2012)
- Street Fighter V (2016)
- Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (2013)
- DmC: Devil May Cry (2013)
- Ultra Street Fighter IV (2014)
- Strider (2014)
