Monster Hunter World is almost here, and as we gear up to welcome the latest chapter of the beloved series, players are still wondering when Monster Hunter World releases, and when they’ll be able to dive into the living, breathing world that Capcom has created. Today we’ll go over everything you need to know about when Monster Hunter World releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and even PC.
When Does Monster Hunter World Come Out?
Currently Monster Hunter World is set to release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on January 26, just a few short weeks from now. We’ve already seen two betas for the game on the PlayStation 4, and both have given fans a great taste of what they can expect from the latest chapter of the series. Of course, one of the biggest questions still weighing on people’s minds is ‘when will the PC version release’.
Unfortunately, there’s no real news on the PC release of Monster Hunter World, but that doesn’t mean PC players should give up just yet. Capcom have already made it clear that the PC version is in the works, they’re just working to make sure it’s up to snuff with the other editions available. Until official news is released we’ll simply have to wait until Capcom releases more info on the PC version of the game.

Players who preorder Monster Hunter World on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will receive the Origin Set Armor, which comes with the head, chest, arms, waist, and legs.
