Monster Hunter: World releasing in January 2018
Special editions of the game now up for pre-order
Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World will be available globally on January 26, 2018 for consoles. A PC release will follow at a later date.
Players that pre-order in North America on consoles 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. For those that pre-order any digital version from the PS Store, they will also receive instant access to a custom PS4 theme.
The Digital Deluxe Edition for North America is $69.99 and 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 PS4 version of the Digital Deluxe Edition also includes 14 weapon-themed PSN avatars. The contents for the Digital Deluxe Edition will also be available for purchase separately.
Last but not least, the North American physical Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code all bundled in a custom collector’s box for $149.99.
Monster Hunter: World will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
