Do you hear it? A dinosaur roar in the distance. The sound of blades scraping across its scaly hide. That can only mean one thing – Monster Hunter: World has finally come to PC. It’s an exciting time as we can finally slay those iconic beasts with our own oversized swords and hammers. But given that this is the PC debut of the 14-year-old series it’s quite possible you have never played one of these games before. You know what you need? A Monster Hunter: World guide.
Capcom’s beastie-bashing adventure may be horribly late to the PC party, but we’ll forgive it. After all, we just can’t stay mad at Paolumu – aka The Flying Hamster of Death. Still, coming a full six months after the console versions, you’d hope Monster Hunter World isn’t a phoned-in port. Has the game received any major graphical upgrades over the PS4 and Xbox One editions? Are 60fps Barroth brawls easily obtainable? That’s what we’re here to find out, hunters.

Monster Hunter is a series about exactly what it says on the tin: tracking and killing big beasties in a fantastical land. This is obvious from the first moments you spend with Monster Hunter: World. Before you lies a densely detailed ecosystem, full of snarling life, herbivores snacking in the open while a pair of hungry eyes watch on from behind a leafy canopy. Wait a second and you could witness carnage as a Great Jagras waddles out to gobble its prey whole, before being interrupted by a Rathalos that was flying overhead, the pair of titans then duking it out with all the hisses and yelps of a real animal scrap as they tear down the forest around them.
The Boomsday Project, the second expansion in Hearthstone’s Year of the Raven, releases later today, but as ever with these releases, exactly when you’ll be able to play isn’t always clear. With that in mind, we’ve reached out to Blizzard to determine exactly when you’ll be able to open those fresh new packs.
Co-op third-person horde shooters are tricky to get right. Make a bad one and you’re accused of being a poor Left 4 Dead clone. Come to think of it – do it well and you still risk being seen as copying Valve’s masterpiece wholesale. This is a genre in which it’s hard to make a name for yourself.
Where once there was only Left 4 Dead for competition, Rebellion’s Strange Brigade is a co-op horde shooter launching in the same year as Vermintide 2, Earthfall, and Hunt: Showdown. Rebellion’s game does stand out, however, in part through its setting: a pulpy action adventure set in the unearthed tombs of 1930s Egypt. It also adds to the proven formula a number of puzzling minigames and a full story campaign – which starts with an ancient evil unleashed by a bumbling amateur archaeologist, naturally. How gloriously kitsch.
