Monster Hunter: World’s PC release date has been revealed, along with its system requirements.

If you’re one of the fans eagerly awaiting news on Monster Hunter: World’s PC edition, today’s news should whet your appetite. A brand-new Steam page has revealed that it will launch for PC on August 9, 2018.

Monster Hunter: World for PC should have the same launch-day content as the console versions. That said, special collaborations and additional content will be added for free at a later date. Steam is also offering pre-order bonuses and a Digital Deluxe Edition with the following items.

Pre-order Bonuses:

  • Origin Set: The Origin Set armor is a nostalgic must-have for series fans. This full armor set (head, chest, arms, waist, and legs) comes with enough defense to carry you through the early quests, and also features plenty of skills useful for gathering.
  • Fair Wind Charm: The Fair Wind charm carries a skill that increases your attack power, and one that adds a chance of reducing the damage you take. The charm also has a nice visual impact, as equipping it will add a glowing aura effect to your left arm!

Digital Deluxe Edition:

  • Samurai Set: Layered armor sets will change the look of your armor without changing the properties underneath. Equip this Samurai set over your favorite armor to take on the striking appearance of a feudal Japanese samurai warrior! (Note : No weapons are included with this set)
  • Gesture: Zen
  • Gesture: Ninja Star
  • Gesture: Sumo Slap
  • Sticker Set: MH All-Stars Set
  • Sticker Set: Sir Loin Set
  • Face Paint: Wyvern
  • Hairstyle: Topknot

Otherwise, we can expect Monster Hunter: World to bring the console version’s gameplay experience to PC, along with significant visual updates. Players will be able to hunt creatures across a large open-world that drops the “zones” of past entries. The game is fully playable solo, but up to three players can join in via drop-in online co-op.

Monster Hunter World PC 30 FPS or 60 FPS:

The only question now is whether your computer can run the game. This tweet of the settings screen does show that Monster Hunter: World will support 4K and 60 FPS.
