Monster Hunter World has become Capcom’s most successful game ever, and for good reason. If you’re the sort of person who goes in for its beguiling charms and incessant grind, you’ll fall in love with World’s voluminous content. If you don’t own a current gen console, preferring to game on Pc, you’ve been forced to sit on the side-lines while others team up to corral and cleft all manner of beast.

But no more! Monster Hunter World is coming to PC, and it’s coming next month. According to Steam, you’ll be able to hunt those monsters on your PC on August 9. There are pre-order bonuses available to those who want to drop coin before release, as well as a digital deluxe edition for those who want entirely pointless, superfluous content.

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

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
