What is Monster Hunter: World?
Monster Hunter: World is an epic open world action game which involves hunting large challenging foes either solo or by teaming up with others. You'll play the role of a Hunter who is tasked with finding foes that roam around the environment, and if you manage to take them down you'll be rewarded with items that can be used to craft powerful weapons and gear that can assist you in taking on more challenging enemies! Hunt beasts through a variety of environments using swords, bows, glaives, axes and more - each with their own unique set of playstyle. As you travel the world you'll find new locations including forests, seas, a desert and the village of Aestra which serves as your main headquarters for interacting with locals, crafting gear and picking up quests.
The game itself has been available on console since early this year, but has finally made the jump to PC and it's made the jump with new resolutions, higher framerates and so much more.
