One of the core parts of Monster Hunter World (and every title in the franchise) is that it usually doesn’t matter how you take the monsters down so long as you do so. Even a slow takedown is a good one. But when the championship event for the title starts on July 28th, the rules are different, as groups of players will compete to take down monsters faster than anyone else. It’s a real test of skill to pit players against beasts not just to defeat them, but to do it quickly. And with panache, if possible.
Registration for the tournament is open until July 26th, but the event is being held in San Francisco, so odds are that you probably should already be prepared if you want to take it on. (It’s not really a weekend jaunt sort of thing.) The winners will get to represent the US in the finals at the Tokyo Game Show as well as a trophy and themed watches, so best of luck to the participants trying to bag a big monster efficiently.
