Good news, hunters! Today Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter: World will be available for Xbox One globally on January 26, 2018. A PC release will follow at a later date. Capcom will also begin preorders today including bonus incentives for the standard version of the game or the newly announced digital deluxe and physical collector’s editions.
The new trailer shows the wild and wonderful variety of creatures featured in the game, from the lizard-like Pukei-Pukei with its extending tongue, to the terrifying monster Nergigante. The beautiful but dangerous Coral Highlands stage was also unveiled–don’t stand around too long gazing at the gorgeous scenery or you might risk ending up as monster fodder! Players have a wide variety of gear to assist them in navigating the fantastical environments in the game, including the Glider Mantle. You can use this to extend your air-time after a jump and, as seen in the new trailer, in some areas, you may even be able to catch a lift on a rising wind draft to quickly reach higher ground.
The newly announced 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 physical Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the Deluxe Kit, plus an art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and soundtrack CD, all bundled in a custom collector’s box.
