Monster Hunter World’s first console beta event is slated for this weekend

You have nothing to do but play video games this weekend, right? No crushing holiday shopping you should be getting a jump on? Great because Capcom’s gonna need your help testing Monster Hunter World’s beta testing starting on December 9th, and there’s some loot in it for you if you do, including gear and face paint that’ll work post-launch.

“The beta features 3 quests across 2 environments from the game. In the Ancient Forest, you can hunt a fierce yet beginner-friendly Great Jagras or as a more experienced player confront the mighty threat of an Anjanath. In the Wildspire Waste, a massive, dry expanse with swamplands, you can face off against the intermediate level mud-slinging Barroth.”

Here’s the downside: It’s the console beta, meaning that you’ll need to have a subbed PlayStation Plus account to take part. Womp womp.

As we’ve previously reported, the game will launch for both consoles in January, with the PC version to follow. It was announced last June and quite impressed MOP’s Andrew Ross at E3.

Grrr this article reminded me that consoles need the subscription service to play this. Guess I’ll just wait till it’s out on PC then DX

Well, guess I will just have to suck it up and play it in PS4, on the couch, with a controller, and less hackers … Like I was planning to all along.

Here’s hoping this opportunity comes to PC as well some point down the road. Til then, I look forward to the deluge of Youtube videos that’ll come out after this weekend. The preview footage thus far has looked pretty darn promising!

Time to see if this game has any more depth, than the extremely shallow Dauntless game.

I still have hope for Dauntless in the long run (Capcom is not really known for long term title support) but for now it is too much of a mud puddle.

It’s going to be so hard to wait for this game to come to PC! I only hope that they make an outstanding port to match that wait time and not a half-hearted one.

Just hope the PC port (or even the base game) has more social and grouping features, than games like Destiny 2 have.
