Monster Hunter: World

The PC version of Monster Hunter: World will launch via Steam on August 9, Capcom announced.

Pre-orders will include the following bonuses:

  • Origin Set – The Origin Set armor is a nostalgic must-have for series fans. This full armor set (head, chest, arms, waist, and legs) comes with enough defense to carry you through the early quests, and also features plenty of skills useful for gathering.
  • Fair Wind Charm – The Fair Wind charm carries a skill that increases your attack power, and one that adds a chance of reducing the damage you take. The charm also has a nice visual impact, as equipping it will add a glowing aura effect to your left arm!

A Digital Deluxe edition will also be available and include the following:

  • Samurai Set – Layered armor sets will change the look of your armor without changing the properties underneath. Equip this Samurai set over your favorite armor to take on the striking appearance of a feudal Japanese samurai warrior!
    Note : No weapons are included with this set
  • Gestures – Enjoy three new amusing gestures you can use when interacting with other players in the game.
    • Gesture: Zen
    • Gesture: Ninja Star
    • Gesture: Sumo Slap
  • Stickers – Fun stickers you can use when chatting with other players in the game.
    • Sticker Set: MH All-Stars Set
    • Sticker Set: Sir Loin Set
  • Face Paint: Wyvern – Add a new face paint for character customization in Monster Hunter: World.
