‘Monster Hunter: World’ Coming to PC

Capcom’s action role-playing game “Monster Hunter: World” is coming to PC on Aug. 9, the company announced on Monday.

The game was originally planned to launch this fall, which means PC fans are getting their hands on it a bit early. Updates and fixes made in other platform versions will make their way to the PC port gradually, Capcom said. It will also get new content and gameplay features in the future. Its event quest schedule will differ from other platforms, so Capcom said fans should stay tuned to official Capcom channels for more details on additional content release dates.

Monster Hunter: World” is the first game in the long-running franchise with complete drop-in functionality in online co-op. It first launched on Jan. 26 and is already Capcom’s best-selling game of all time, shipping over eight million copies globally.

Here are “Monster Hunter: World’s” full PC specs:
