“Monster Hunter: World” will be released on January 26, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One and later for the PC. Previously there will be an extensive beta, to which additional information has been shared today.
Capcom has announced further information about the upcoming beta of Monster Hunter: World. It takes place from 9 to 12 December 2017. All PlayStation 4 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription will receive access. As part of the preload, the client for the beta may be pre-downloaded from 8 December 2017 at midnight.
The beta of Monster Hunter World will be available on December 9, 2017 at 6pm Central European Time until 6pm on Tuesday, December 12, 2017. Three quests are waiting for you during this time. They can be tackled solo and multiplayer too. Added to this is a training area where you can test all 14 weapon types before deciding which one to take with you to hunt.
“Players can choose their hunter from twelve pre-set avatars,” said Capcom. “There are also six Palico companions available for those who want to challenge themselves in solo mode, and each preset is just a foretaste of the variety of Hunter and Palico personalization available in the full version of the game Hunters from all over the world can join forces online to tackle quests together or hunt along with friends thanks to the Game Seekers option in Online Multiplayer, where players can communicate with voice chat, stickers and gestures. ”
The beta already supports full localization in German and English as well as Japanese language and text output. Participants will be rewarded with special bonus items that can be added to the full version of “Monster Hunter: World”. After successfully completing a quest, there is a special face paint personalization option for the hunters. In addition, each quest offers a different object pack of useful items, including maxi potions, life powders, or shock traps, which you can get when you complete the quest and also use it in the full version.
