PC players: your patience will soon be rewarded: updates for Monster Hunter World that have been on consoles for months will soon be making their way to the Steam version. Monster Hunter’s official Twitter account put out a tweet that details the roadmap for PC updates over the coming months, with the earliest coming as soon as December.
The December updates will entail a collaboration with Universal Studios Japan including new quests, weapons, armor, and Palico gear. The rest of the December update includes a new Arch-Tempered monster, and Title Update 5.0. The first Arch-Tempered Monster on this roadmap is Vaal Hazak; however, the most notable new hunt for December is focused around Final Fantasy XIV’s Behemoth.
January and February’s updates will include two more Arch-Tempered Monsters, and Title Update 5.1. The two new Arch-Tempered monsters are set to be Teostra and Kushala Daora, while the only information available on Title Update 5.1 is that it will bring ultra-wide display support.
Information on content going beyond February is limited to the addition of three more Arch-Tempered Monsters: Lunastra, Zorah Magdaros, and Xeno’jiva.
Despite how long it’s taking for them to catch up with consoles, updates for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World are coming out at a rapid pace, while console updates are starting to slow down a tad. It’s encouraging to see that Capcom is staying committed to their PC player base, and catching them up to players on consoles.
In the meantime, it might be a good idea to start brushing up on strategies for taking down the Behemoth.
