Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World is finally available for digital purchase on PC via Steam. The game released for PS4 and Xbox One earlier this year to critical acclaim and has since gone on to become Capcom’s best-selling game in company history with over 8 million units shipped globally.
In this entry, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. Materials collected from fallen foes can be used to craft new gear and take on even bigger, badder beasts.

In Monster Hunter: World, follow the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. As hunters set out on their quests, the Commission’s sights are set on Zorah Magdaros, a colossal elder dragon that rises from the earth like a volcano.
Special collaborations and other additional content that has been released post-launch for Monster Hunter: World on console will be coming to PC for free at a later date.
EF Games will bring you a full review of Monster Hunter: World later this month.
