  • End Time: December 12th, 2017 at 8:59am PT / 4:59pm GMT / 5:59pm CET


What’s There To Do?

The Monster Hunter: World  Beta will feature three quests across two of the game’s locations; the Ancient Forest and the Wildspire Wastes for hunters to tackle. With each one having a monster of varying difficulty to slay including:

And according to Capcom, completing all three quests prior to the Beta ending, can net you special items for when the full game launches early next year.

“complete each quest and you’ll get some useful bonus items in the full game! Just make sure you use the same Sony Entertainment Network account for both the beta and the full game.”


Furthermore, hunters will be able to wield 14 of Monster Hunter: World‘s  weapon types, which can all be tested in the new “Training Room” feature from the game. There will also be potions and various supplies provided to aid in questing.



Yep! At the recent 2017 PlayStation Experience event, Capcom showcased an amusing new trailer found below, featuring the iconic Mega Man,  another franchise that they own. This crossover is to celebrate Mega Man’s  30th anniversary that’s happening in 2018.

Hunters will be able to outfit their Palico companions in an 8-bit, cel-shaded Mega Man  costume, all complete with its 8-bit tunes echoing in combat. Another crossover previously revealed for MH:W  was with Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn.
