Monster Hunter: World is rapidly approaching its release, and we’re bringing you a taste of the thrill of the hunt even sooner with our online Beta for PS4 coming up in December, exclusively for PlayStation Plus users!

Monster Hunter World PGW-01

From December 9 to December 12, you and up to three friends can start getting your feet wet in the dangerous locales of the new world. In this Beta, you’ll be tasked with hunting a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, and a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste. While these are your main quest targets, be on the lookout for other deadly monsters roaming each ecosystem.

Monster Hunter World PGW-02

Aside from your robust arsenal of 14 unique weapon types, we’re also equipping you with a variety of new Mantles to try out, a full stock of healing, buffing and trapping items, and one of the most powerful tools introduced in Monster Hunter: World — the environment itself! As you explore each unique location, take a moment to note entangled vines, rock formations and even water leaks, as these may be clues for potential natural traps you can use in your hunt.

Monster Hunter World PGW-03

Speaking of expert hunting tactics, we are very proud to reveal a special collaboration with Horizon Zero Dawn, which will bring Aloy’s bow and armor into Monster Hunter: World! This hunter armor set, along with machine-themed armor for your Felyne Palico will be available for free and only on PlayStation 4, though you’ll have to prove your worth by completing a unique Event Quest and gathering the required resources. We’ll have more info on this exclusive content soon.

Monster Hunter World PGW-04

In the meantime, take a look at this gear in motion, along with a brand new ecosystem and its deadly inhabitants in the Rotten Vale trailer at the top of this post.

Monster Hunter: World will be available on PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro on January 26, 2018, and you can already pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition to get an exclusive Dynamic Theme and Weapon Icon avatars for your PlayStation 4, as well as the Samurai Set and Origin Set of armor for your hunter. We’ll look forward to hunting with you online in the Beta this December!

Is this an Open Beta? Or do I have to sign up for something?

Some scenes looked like there are some MMO elements. Is that accurate or are those so NPCs in that community?

    There are Hub towns where up to 16 people can be in the HUB at one time but there can still only be 4 people on an actual hunt at a time.
