If you've been holding out for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World, your wait is nearly over.

The game is expected to hit PC at some point this autumn.


Mods are sort of a staple with PC ports, so I'm sure many people were expecting Capcom to ship Monster Hunter: World with mod support. "This is the first time we've taken a mainline Monster Hunter game to PC", producer Ryozo Tsujimoto tells us in a written Q&A, "so we wanted to take the time to get it right and do the proper research and preparation".

Fast forward to today and it seems that Monster Hunter: World for PC is almost ready to go. In addition to the standard version, the game will also be available in a Digital Deluxe edition, which contains the same assortment of customization items found in the console equivalent. Two editions will come, including a standard edition for $59.99, and a Digital Deluxe edition now discounted 6% at $70.48. Obviously, Sony wouldn't be down with it, but there really is no reason that a Windows Store version couldn't exist with Xbox One compatibility. The company also shared a list of minimum and recommended specifications for the game, and they're surprisingly accessible. Capcom launched Street Fighter V with the ability, for instance, but that won't be a reality for World. Both of the console releases of Monster Hunter World had unlocked framerates but struggled visually as a result. Capcom could limit the PC release due to the complaints stemming from the console community, but would likely face a different sort of frustration from the PC community instead.
