Monster Hunter: World sees players take to a land dominated by ferocious monsters, both small and large. Tasked with taking down the beasts, you can wield several different weapon types and upgrade your armor along the way, seeking to gain any advantage you can over your prey. For PC players, the game will let you hunt at up to 4K resolution at 60 FPS, if your rig can handle it. The game also supports playing with either a keyboard and mouse or a controller.

Monster Hunter: World is up for preorder now on PC starting at $49.19. If you'd prefer to take on the hunt on consoles, the game is also available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with enhancements for Xbox One X. And for more, be sure to check out our full Monster Hunter: World Xbox One review.
