Monster Hunter World Beta Happening This Weekend, Here's What We'll Get

Monster Hunter World Beta Happening This Weekend, Here's What We'll Get

The beta is available to PlayStation 4 owners who subscribe to PlayStation Plus.

In addition to requiring a Plus subscription, expect the beta to take up 5.9 GB of free space.

If you've been a big fan of Monster Hunter, then you're probably excited about the next installment, Monster Hunter: World which is coming out next year.

Capcom confirmed that there will be three quests available in the Monster Hunter: World beta.




In the Ancient Forest, you can hunt a fierce yet beginner-friendly Great Jagras or as a more experienced player confront the mighty threat of an Anjanath.

You can try out Monster Hunter: World with the beta this weekend only if you are a PlayStation Plus member. The third mission is in the Wildspire Waste where players can traverse the swamplands to do battle against the Barroth.

Since the aim of the beta is to gather feedback that will be useful to unlocking the game's full potential in time for its launch, players are warned that the aspects of the "Monster Hunter: World" beta involving balance can end up being very different from the final version. Capcom has also promised a few rewards for completing each quest; players can receive bonus items for use in the full game - just make sure the beta and full game are under the same Sony Network account to redeem them. Switching weapons is easily done at camp, and there's even a Training Room included in the beta to test each one. The video is in Japanese, but it runs over nine minutes long and shows off the game's story, some of the major NPCs, its breathtaking environment, and several gameplay elements. More details on the beta are at the game's website.
