Capcom was the very best publisher of 2018, at least according to the scores its games received from critics. The company garnered an average review score of 79.3 across all its games, from well-regarded collections to excellent new releases – just check out our Monster Hunter: World review for the biggest example.
Tag: Monster Hunter: World
Monster Hunter: World is a year old now, and even though we didn’t see it appear on PC until August, we get to join in the Appreciation Festival event along with everyone else. That means a whole new selection of event quests and special gear to hunt for over the course of the festival, plus a chance to grab past limited-time offers that you may have missed.
Crossovers have long been a feature of Monster Hunter games, and Monster Hunter: World is continuing the tradition – the Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia will be visiting the New World some time this coming year, and we’ve now learned there’s an Assassin’s Creed collaboration as well.
While Geralt may hate portals, it seems he can’t get away from interdimensional passages. Monster Hunter: World marks his latest crossover journey, and it least means the Witcher will get to do what he does best: hunt monsters. Geralt will become part of Capcom’s game in a free update next year.
Capcom has just issued a special developer update for Monster Hunter World. In a livestream that took place earlier this afternoon, the game’s producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto issued several announcements, the most important of which is an expansion featuring a brand-new biome – Monster Hunter World: Iceborn.
Monster Hunter: World waited more than seven months to come to PC after launching on consoles in January, so we’ve been playing catch-up when it comes to the game’s limited-time seasonal events – until now. When the Winter Star Festival kicks off for consoles, PC players will get to join in the fun too.
The Game Awards 2018 will air in less than a month, and while the focus will as always be more on the announcements than the actual awards, we’ve still got a chance to celebrate some of the best games of the year. (In addition to those games you really hate but everyone else seemed to like.) Today all the nominees were confirmed, and while the list skews a bit toward the console side this year, there are plenty of PC games up for top honours.
Monster Hunter: World PC players will finally have the chance to hunt Lunastra later this month, as the Steam version continues to catch up with the free content provided for the console versions of the game. The Elder Dragon will be available on November 21, and a host of other changes are in store soon – including connection error fixes and the option to turn off depth of field blur.
The first set images for the live-action Monster Hunter movie have appeared online and, uh, it seems the Hollywood adaptation won’t follow the games all that closely.
Starting Friday, Monster Hunter: World players will be able to earn special Mega Man palico gear, and play a special limited-time event quest.
