Monster Hunter: World Launches for PC on August 9

Capcom has confirmed the Windows PC release date for Monster Hunter: World.

The latest in their monster-hunting franchise will launch for Windows PC (via Steam) on August 9th. The game’s PC version will support up to 4K resolution, as well as 60FPS performance.

Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game’s PC version. If you pre-purchase the game, you’ll get the following bonus content:

  • 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!

There’s also a Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes:

  • 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
    Enjoy three new amusing gestures you can use when interacting with other players in the game.
