Monster Hunter Stories Is Now Out On Smartphone In Japan Along With A Demo Version

Monster Hunter: World launches on PS4 and Xbox One on January 26th, with a PC version due later in 2018. Beginning on December 9, Capcom will launch a Monster Hunter: World beta for PlayStation 4 at 9 AM Pacific. Expect to allot 5.9 GB of free space on your hard drive. Each of the beta's quests can be played alone of with a group of up to three other players, but the PS4 will need to be connected to the internet either way. 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. Maybe a massive dry expanse with some swamplands is more your speed?

Don't worry, there's rewards.

I've never played Monster Hunter before, so this will be my first time playing the game, even if it's the beta.

Players will then be able to play solo or with three additional friends in taking down or hunting a monster in the RPG world. With fourteen different weapon types available based on playstyle, which can be changed during quests at camp.

One new feature that will be present in the Monster Hunter: World beta is the Training Room, where players can try out the different weapons to choose the best one for them. Potions and other supplies will be provided on quests during the beta, but you'll have to fetch your own food and drinks outside the game for those long gameplay sessions. Those who have made significant progress in the beta and are anxious about starting over again in the full version need not fret, as the beta will reward them with bonus items that will remain with the full release. Earlier reports suggested that offline single-player questing would be possible in World, so I've asked Capcom for clarification that this online requirement only applies to the beta and not the full game.

Capcom unexpectedly released Monster Hunter Stories on iOS and Android in Japan and it is now available for 1,900 yen.
