Capcom reveals release date and system requirements

Monster Hunter: World enthralled console gamers into the New World, inviting them to liquidate haunting creatures that populate the continent; soon enough PC gamers will be able to replicate that very experience.

Earlier today in a blog post, Capcom announced a solid date for when we can expect to start slaying some monsters; formerly arriving Q4 2018, Monster Hunter: World is slated to release 9th August. Players can visit Steam to pre-order the game for $59.99, granting access to two exclusive in-game rewards:

Origin Set
The Origin Set armor is a nostalgic must-have for series fans.
This full armor set (head, chest, arms, waist, and legs) comes with enough defense to carry you through the early quests, and also features plenty of skills useful for gathering.

Fair Wind Charm
The Fair Wind charm carries a skill that increases your attack power, and one that adds a chance of reducing the damage you take. The charm also has a nice visual impact, as equipping it will add a glowing aura effect to your left arm!

Players can also opt-in to purchase the Deluxe Edition comprising of the following digital cosmetics:

Samurai Set
