Monster Hunter World Will Add New Monsters As Free DLC
The hunt never ends.
Capcom had already confirmed that Monster Hunter World will receive an assortment of DLC following its release, including a set of Horizon: Zero Dawn gear and Mega Man armor for your Palico. That won't be the extent of the DLC coming to the game, however.
In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu (via Gematsu), Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto revealed that Capcom plans to continue supporting the game following its release by adding new monsters. Tsujimoto didn't share any details on what kinds of monsters players can expect or give a time frame for when they will arrive, but he did confirm that the monsters will come as free post-launch updates.
PlayStation 4 owners who are interested in trying Monster Hunter World before it releases still have an opportunity to do so; a limited-time Monster Hunter World beta is going on right now for PS Plus subscribers. The beta ends at at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM GMT on December 12 and features three sample quests in the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste levels. The monsters you can hunt in the beta include the Great Jagras, the Anjanath, and the Barroth. Players who complete all three quests will earn "some useful bonus items" in the full title when it launches.
Monster Hunter World releases for PS4 and Xbox One on January 26; a PC release is slated to follow later in 2018. You can read all about it in our Monster Hunter World review. Capcom still hasn't announced if a similar beta will be available for Xbox One and PC. However, the company did share a new trailer for the game during Sony's PSX stream last week, which showcases more of the game's story, as well as the aforementioned Mega Man armor. You can watch that trailer above.
