Monster Hunter: World will release worldwide on January 26, 2018

Good news for fans of hunting monsters today, as Monster Hunter: World has announced its release date as January 26th, 2018! The slightly less-good news is that’s just for the versions on Xbox One and PlayStation 4; players on PC will have to wait for an as-yet unspecified date. But it’s still happening, and a firm release date just makes it seem that much more likely in the near future.

You can also check out a new rather narrative trailer just below, showing off the landscapes and (most importantly) the monsters players will encounter in the game. Those of you who remember that a rather similar title pushed its own launch to 2018 might be looking forward to the battle for hearts and minds, but if you’re a stalwart Monster Hunter fan, you can be happy just to know that there are only a few short months before the game is open to the world. You can also check out our hands-on from E3 this year.

I can’t express how happy I am that this is coming out in January. I’ll definitely be picking up the CE of this game. I’ll be playing on PC. Happy hunting.

… and now the realization that pc isn’t dropping at the same time </3

Not gonna lie. For whatever reason, this makes me kind of happy! I hope they give some announcements for the PC version soon!

This is my most-anticipated game right now. Monster Hunter is literally my favorite game series. I imagined we would have to wait a little longer into 2018, so this is a nice surprise. My hunting partner (and PCMR elitist) best friend is gonna throw a fit that I’m getting the PS4 version, but I don’t want to wait any longer than I have to for MHW.

Cool. If the pc version isn’t a networking disaster then I’m just going to throw caution to the wind and say I’m in. I’ve always wanted to try one and here is my chance.

I don’t mind grind if I think it’s fun. Every MMO is just grind with few exceptions. Hell when I played FFVII I kept going to just for bigger and bigger Buster Swords.

That’s fine with me, I’ve been looking for a wot replacement and this or Dauntless looks like it will do nicely.

yeah the only surprising thing is that it took so long to happen.
