Monster Hunter World is out on January 26th but the first review for the game has been published by the popular Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu. The game will be available worldwide on January 26th for the PS4, Xbox One and will launch later in Autumn 2018 for the PC.
Monster Hunter World has received a score of 39/40 from Famitsu. This is the second time since Famitsu has given a Monster Hunter game near perfect score. The only game in the series to get a perfect score from them is Monster Hunter 3 with Portable 3 coming close second.
Monster Hunter World is a brand new take on the series with a focus on consoles. The series was previously exclusive to the handheld platforms with a release on the Sony’s PlayStation Portable and Nintendo 3DS. It is finally making its return to the consoles with a multiplatform release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Capcom has also announced an open beta for the game ahead of its launch on January 26th. This open beta will be available to all users on the PS4 and doesn’t require PS Plus subscription. This is the third and final beta test for the game. Capcom also confirmed that they will release new monsters as free DLC after the launch of the game, with the first free DLC monster set to release sometime in Spring 2018.
