Monster Hunter: World is coming to console in January, but later on PC


Ahead of Tokyo Game Show, Monster Hunter: World has got a new trailer and a release date announcement. Capcom’s fantasy ARPG is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018… but we’ll have to wait a little longer. Capcom say “a PC release will follow at a later date.”

Monster Hunter: World is the first time the series has come to PC. You’ll play a member of a research commission, which has been sent to explore a dangerous, undiscovered new territory.

The TGS trailer shows off the expedition’s base of operations – a pleasant-looking village called Astera – as well as a very shouty man who insists that everything has to be done “NOW!” and a variety of intriguing monster designs. Some of them fly despite having improbably small wings for their body size – it’s wild.
