Monster Hunter World schedules another PS4 beta, talks post-launch plans
Capcom is keeping those Monster Hunter World deets coming! The studio says it’s planning on a third beta round for North American PlayStation 4 players ahead of its official release. It’ll run January 18th to 22nd, with the PS4 launch still planned for January 26th. Of special note, players should expect “regular content updates as well as major title updates for free.”
“In addition to the previously released Great Jagras, Anjanath and Barroth quests, players will now be able to battle against the game’s terrifying and challenging flagship monster Nergigante,” Capcom says. “The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Another monster introduced in the trailer [below] is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.”
Earlier this week, the studio told players the PC version is coming in the fall. Cue long sighs all around. But hey, at least there’s a new video!
