July 10, 2018 — by Manish "Trigger-Happy" Rajesh0

Monster Hunter World released early this year in January and we were told that the PC version would be coming out sometime in fall. And sure enough, Monster Hunter World PC is coming out pretty soon – August 9, 2018 to be exact.

This is actually earlier than expected, as we were expecting the game to come around September or November. Not that we’re complaining, we can’t wait to get the game on PC.

This is the first time a mainstream Monster Hunter game is coming to PC. Not only are we excited to play, we’re also curious to see how the game will run on PC and how the format will work on PC. Technically, there shouldn’t be a problem since games like Dark Souls which have somewhat similar mechanics are already playable on PC, plus we have controller support as well.

We reviewed Monster Hunter: World on the PS4 and definitely loved the game. You can check out that review here.

Monster Hunter World will supposedly have “parity” with the console version at launch. This means that for the time being, don’t expect the graphics to look better than on consoles and we should get at least a steady 30fps at most times.
