Monster Hunter World is getting another beta, early post-launch plans revealed

More information will be announced on a later date.

Surprising no-one, Capcom have confirmed that Monster Hunter: World will be supported with post-launch content updates, many of which will be free. But instead of getting launched in summer, the game has been pushed to autumn. The experience mirrors that of the game, where players hunt giant and ferocious creatures before carving them up to create their armour gear or cook their findings on a BBQ to restore their health. Which may explain why there's no vegetarian option available.

The Kushala Daora is a steel dragon that can control storm clouds and is protected by thick metal plates. There's a press/media preview night as well, though it's proving unsurprisingly popular already!

Monster Hunter World will follow the franchise's triumphant return to consoles later this month with its first PC release, now slated for the fall of 2018.

For more details head to Eventbrite. Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto took to Twitter with a brief video thanking fans for their invaluable feedback during the beta testing process and announcing that the game is now being optimized for PC, aiming for an autumn 2018 release.

At the event that Capcom is calling "The Monster Hunter Meat Shack" you'll be eating meat platters and burgers of "epic proportions" served from a huge meat spit in the spirit of how Monster Hunter players can carve up beasts for a nice hearty meal.
