We’re less than two weeks away from the release of the highly anticipated Monster Hunter World, but we still have one more Beta to go through before we can get our hands on the full game. Capcom announced a final beta to happen before the game’s launch, running from January 18th through January 22nd.
The Beta will give players a final chance to get aquanted with the game, bringing back all the hunts from the last two Betas, and including a brand new battle with the game’s terrifying and challenging flagship monster, Nergigante.
The announcement of the Beta came along with a new trailer showcasing Monster Hunter World’s major hunts, the Elder Dragons, which featured several new and returning favourites. Capcom provided a quick look into a couple of these Dragons, which from the descriptions, do not f**k around.
“The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Another monster introduced in the trailer is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.”
Capcom has also officially confirmed that Monster Hunter World will see post-launch support with regular content updates, as well as major title updates for free. The first of which will be coming in Spring with the addition of a fan favourite monster, Deviljho.
Capcom previously confirmed that Monster Hunter World’s main campaign will clock in at 40-60 hours with plenty of additional content to go through as well. Some early shots of the case of the Japanese version has shown that this rendition of Monster Hunter won’t be a beast in your hard-drive either, taking up only 16GB of space.
