For PlayStation Plus members, they are able to get Monster Hunter: World Beta free until December 12, 2017. The game is free from December 9, 2017, for a quick preview of what will be in store for players.
On the website, it gives more information stating that:
“A new world awaits you, where a living, breathing ecosystem of flora and fauna is the setting for pulse-pounding battles against fearsome creatures using an arsenal of powerful weapons. The beta features three quests set across two different maps: the dense, verdant foliage of the Ancient Forest and the arid sands of the Wildspire Waste. Track your prey across each of these unique landscapes, using the very environment itself to your advantage. Each quest features a different monster for you to try your hand at hunting, but you don’t have to go it alone: up to four players can team up online in co-operative multiplayer.”
The three quests are for each difficulty. For beginners, the first quest is to hunt the ‘Great Jagras’ an ancient forest. The second quest is to hunt a ‘Barroth’ in a place called the Wildspire Waste. And finally, for experts, the final challenge is to hunt the ‘Anjanath’ in the ancient forest again. Capcom, the video game developer of Monster Hunter: World spoke about one of the new locations called Rotten Vale a couple of months ago saying that:
“The deeper players journey into the inner layers of the Rotten Vale, the tougher the environment gets with a dangerous and toxic mist blanketing the land obscuring the perils that lurk nearby until the very last minute.”
Players will be able to take a sneak peek into seeing what this map looks like over the next few days with the Beta version. As well, Capcom has given a few hints and tips beforehand saying that they recommend fans to test their weapons out first in the Training Ground and to make sure they look at the sharpness of your weapons over time.
The full version of Monster Hunter: World is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018.
