Good news, hunters! Today Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter: World will be available for Xbox One globally on January 26, 2018. Capcom will also begin pre-orders today including bonus incentives for the standard version of the game or the newly announced Digital Deluxe and physical Collector’s editions. In addition, Capcom also released assets including a new trailer for the game showcasing various new monsters as well as a peek at Astera, the base of operations for the Research Commission as they explore a new world.
The TGS 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 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.
Players that pre-order Monster Hunter: World in North America on either Xbox One or PS4 either digitally or at participating retailers will receive access to special pre-order bonuses, including the 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.
*Please note that the Origin Set armor and Fair Wind Charm talisman may be made available through alternative means at a later date.
