No Loot Boxes or Microtransactions in Monster Hunter

No Loot Boxes or Microtransactions in Monster Hunter

But PC players will be holding on until an ambiguous Fall 2018 release window to play Capcom's revamped Monster Hunter entry.

Due to the recent proliferation of malfeasance and overreach by the hands of companies like EA and Activision with Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Destiny 2's manipulative in-game monetization schemes, Monster Hunter World fans are surely thankful that the game won't have any kind of microtransaction or loot box system in place at launch. The reason behind the delay is to provide us a better gameplay experience and optimize the game to PC platform. This will happen until the console version is completely ready and essentially "out the door".

While a more polished game is always welcome, one has to wonder why CAPCOM didn't take this into account earlier in the development phase to make sure all the versions were more or less aligned for release dates. However, the game's producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto insists that, although the learning curve for the first few hours feels somewhat shallower to previous games, subsequent monster encounters will prove as challenging as hardcore followers of the series expect. Fortunately, the developers did not leave the PC community in the dark.




Tsujimoto explains that rather than diversifying the development resources between the console release and the PC port, the company has decided that it will instead focus their attention on one project at a time.

"Monster Hunter World" is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One on January 26, while Capcom aims to release the PC version sometime during autumn this year.

Tsujimoto continued by explaining why the PC port is a more hard task for developers, saying that "There's extra work you need for PC as well". So, hopefully, PC users won't mind waiting a little bit longer for us to bring you a really great optimised PC experience.
