The beta is scheduled to begin on January 18th through January 22nd for North American PlayStation 4 owners. In addition to the previous quests available from the first beta, players will also have the opportunity to battle the flagship monster Nergigante.
In addition to the beta announcement, Capcom announced regular content updates post-launch for free starting Spring 2018. The first update will include the fan-favorite monster Deviljho.
Monster Hunter: World launches on January 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in addition to PC in Fall 2018.
I’m ecstatic that Capcom decided to have a beta days before the game releases. If I find myself captivated by Monster Hunter: World’s beta, then I could finally start my first Monster Hunter adventure.
