Monster Hunter: World is a remarkable game and many PC gamers might have never played anything like it.
When we reviewed the console version of Monster Hunter: World back in January, we praised it for its combat and the depth of its gameplay mechanics while criticising the difficulties of playing with friends. Regardless, Monster Hunter was finally free of the shackles of handhelds and went on to become the best-selling game in Capcom’s history. Now, Capcom has just confirmed the release date of the PC version of the game along with its system requirements.
While it was originally scheduled to release during fall 2018, Monster Hunter: World will launch on August 9, 2018. All of the additional content that has been released since its original launch will be available on PC for free but at a later date.
The game is capable of running at high framerates, but Capcom’s system requirements used 1080p and 30 fps as a reference point. You will need at least an i5-4460 or AMD FX6300 along with a GTX 760 or R7 260x to play the game at low graphical settings. For high, it is recommended to have at least an i3-8350, i7-3770 or Ryzen 5 1500X along with a GTX 1060 or RX 570X. At first glance, it is disappointing to know that the GTX 1060 wont be able to run the game on high at 60 fps but dropping a few settings should allow you to maintain that framerate.
Monster Hunter: World is a remarkable game and I doubt many PC gamers have played anything like it. It is all about hunting large monsters and utilising their parts to hunt even bigger monsters. Although, it is highly recommended to play with friends since playing solo, while manageable, does get monotonous.
