Monster Hunter World comes to PC in August

Monster Hunter: World is coming to Windows PC via Steam on Aug. 9, Capcom announced today. The PC version of the game was originally scheduled for release sometime this fall, meaning patient PC fans will get Monster Hunter a bit earlier than expected

All the special collaborations and additional content updates that have been released as post-launch DLC for the console versions of the game will be coming to PC as a free update. That includes quests and gear based on Street Fighter, Mega Man and Devil May Cry. Capcom plans to reveal more details on these free DLC updates on its Twitter.

Capcom teased a PC announcement over the weekend, that the release date was coming. Not long after Capcom’s teaser, Monster Hunter: World PC’s system requirements reportedly leaked on Tencent’s WeGame platform. The game will be distributed on Steam.

Capcom also released the game’s minimum and recommended system specifications that players will need in their systems to run the game at playable frame rates:
