Today Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter: World will be available on PS4 and Xbox One worldwide on January 26, 2018, with a PC release arriving later. Capcom also unveiled some new assets for the game, including a trailer showing off Astera, the base of operations for the Research Commission in the game.

Additionally, Capcom will open pre-orders today for the standard version of the game and the Digital Deluxe and physical Collector's editions. Players that pre-order Monster Hunter: World in North America on either Xbox One or PS4 will receive access to pre-order bonuses, including the Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman. 

The Digital Deluxe Edition for North America, set at $69.99, includes the digital game, and additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter. The PS4 version of the Digital Deluxe Edition also includes 14 weapon-themed PSN avatars. The contents for the Digital Deluxe Edition will be available for purchase separately on January 26.

MHW collector's edition

The North American physical Collector's Edition includes a physical copy of the game, a voucher for the customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition, a 32-page hardcover art book, flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code (physical CD in Japan) all bundled in a custom collector's box. The suggested retail price is $149.99.


Finally, Capcom showed off a brand new Monster Hunter themed PS4 Pro, which appears to be a Japan exclusive. It will go on sale December 7.

The game looks very good, but I'm legitimately jealous of that Pro. I wish they would let me send my normal black pro in and etch in the dragon for me :)

Looks pretty good actually I could see myself playing this and a lot of Japanese gamers for that matter. Collector edition is way to expensive though. Seems like this game is going ton get decent pro support as well and the pro bundle looks decent enough.

I usually don't care that much about special edition consoles, but that console design looks sick as hell.
