Monster Hunter: World Coming to PC on August 9

Capcom revealed today that Monster Hunter: World will get a PC release next month, on August 9th. Originally released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in January, Monster Hunter: World has been well received by gamers and critics alike, so this news should be welcome.

Action RPG fans who wish to pre-order the latest installment in the Monster Hunter franchise should set aside US$59.99 for the Standard Edition, or US$70.48 for the Deluxe Edition, which includes the game plus some extra digital goodies.

The publisher also shared a list of minimum and recommended system requirements:

MINIMUM:

    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: WINDOWS® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4460, 3.20GHz or AMD FX™-6300
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760 or AMD Radeon™ R7 260x (VRAM 2GB)
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 20 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectSound (DirectX® 9.0c)
    • Additional Notes: 1080p/30fps when graphics settings are set to “Low”
RECOMMENDED:

    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: WINDOWS® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 3770 3.4GHz or Intel® Core™ i3 8350 4GHz or AMD Ryzen™ 5 1500X
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 (VRAM 3GB) or AMD Radeon™ RX 570X (VRAM 4GB)
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 20 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectSound (DirectX® 9.0c or better)
    • Additional Notes: 1080p/30fps when graphics settings are set to “High”

The mention of 1080p/30fps might raise a few red flags, but according to Capcom representatives, Monster Hunter: World will not feature a 30 frames per second cap (and our own experience with the company’s MT Framework engine suggests that the recommended requirements will probably deliver a 60fps experience).
