Ryozo Tsujimoto, the game's producer, posted a video to the official Monster Hunter: World YouTube channel yesterday with a release window for the PC version. Unfortunately, it won't be out until sometime "Autumn 2018." That means folks who are waiting to enjoy the first "next-gen" Monster Hunter title on their suped-up computer will have to wait a while longer.

Based on the news post announcing the beta over on the Monster Hunter: World website, it sounds like this will be the very same beta that was PS+ only a couple weeks ago. The beta can be played alone or with up to four friends online, and it will feature three hunting quests (Great Jagras, Barroth, and Anjanath). You'll be able to try out and use each of the 14 weapon types, and regardless of whether you team up with others or not, your friendly Palico will be along for the ride.

The open beta will run from December 9 to December 12 and all you'll need to participate is a PlayStation Plus membership. No sign up or limited space thing here, just go download the beta when it goes up on the PSN Store next month. The beta itself will include three specific hunt missions (a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, and a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste) and it will support four player online co-op as well. There will also be a variety of weapons, Mantles, and other goodies you can try, as Community Manager Yuji Araujo detailed in the PlayStation Blog post:

The entire presentation is 42 minutes long, and while they talk a lot about the overall features, there's really not any discussion of the co-op here. However, if you're interested in just knowing more about Monster Hunter: World, then there are plenty of goodies. You can see the full intro of the game starting around the 7:35 mark, the character creator in action around 9:45, a little discussion of some of the NPCs you'll encounter around 20:00, and jumping into action and showing off the new Exploration Mode around 23:00. After that, it's a whole lot of monster slaying/hunting.

In addition to all that, Capcom revealed two special editions of the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition "includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter." The Collector's Edition includes all those bonus goodies, swaps the digital edition for a physical copy, a 5" (or 125 mm) Nergigante figure, a download code for a special 10-track soundtrack from the game, and a 32 page hardcover artbook. Pre-orders for these items have not yet gone live, but the Digital Deluxe will retail for $69.99 while the Collector's will go for $149.99. Pre-ordering any version of the game will net you a code for Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman, which offer improved starting defense and offense stat boosts for the hunter as well as a useful gathering skill. It's worth noting, though, that the bonus digital items you get in the Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition and the pre-order bonus items will all be made available for purchase separately at some point after the game's release.

The MH:W devs were, naturally, at Gamescom 2017, so it was inevitable that we'd get to see a little more gameplay footage out of it.  This time around, a community manager known only as "Socks" leads a few folks through one of the game's many hunts.  The video more or less cuts right to the action, so don't click it expecting the preparations and planning that typically come beforehand.

There are a number of videos from a variety of outlets floating around there, but the one we're picking here is from Casey DeFreitas and Brandin Tyrrel of IGN. Casey has extensive knowledge and playtime with the entire Monster Hunter series, while Brandin is brand-new to it. Both cover some of the new features and gameplay aspects they liked from both a veteran and novice perspective, and then start discussing a little bit of the co-op aspects around the 2:55 mark. Cooperation and coordinating roles/attacks with your teammates in order to bring down your prey have been a hallmark for the series, but the various tweaks, improvements, and new features (like a greater interaction between monsters and the world around them) seem to raise this higher and allow for a better introduction to the game for new players.

Choosing your weapon is a key part to the Monster Hunter experience. Not only can you craft some pretty slick looking implements of death from the materials you've harvested from your fallen prey, but there are also strategic elements in play as well as your actions/moves are different and the different weapon types deal different damage. There's also some consideration to be given when grouping up with friends to ensure your weapons complement one another.

While there's no mention or sight of the four player online co-op in this clip, it's still a good rundown of the game's mechanics and some of the new features players will be able to enjoy, like pitting two monsters against each other in order to weaken your prey.

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.
