Monster Hunter: World for the PC just got its release date announced. The game will be coming to Steam on Aug. 9 with pre-orders open now.
Players who pre-order Monster Hunter: World will also get an exclusive Origin Armour Set and Fair Wind Charm to help them out as a hunter. The armour set can help players get through early quests, as it provides them with the defence and skills used for gathering materials.
Meanwhile, the charm comes with a skill that not only increases attack power but also gives the chance of reducing damage taken. The charm also gets a nice visual bonus, as has a glowing effect when equipped.
There is a digital deluxe edition for Monster Hunter: World available as well. This edition includes the Samurai Set, which changes the appearance of a player’s armour. Other bonuses include Wyvern face paint, a new hairstyle, stickers used for chat, and three amusing emotes.
Whether players prefer to hunt alone in the single-player option or take on beasts in a team of up to three others, Monster Hunter: World has something for everyone. It’s a new world where players get to slay monsters for a living, use the landscape and its inhabitants for hunting advantages, and collect material from fallen opponents to craft new gear for epic fights against constantly bigger and badder beasts.
