Good news, fellow Monster Hunter fans! Capcom has just announced that Monster Hunter World finally has a release date, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And it’s sooner than you think – January 26th, 2018. We’ll know more about the PC release at a later date.

There are several different versions of the game being released. A standard edition, and the recently announced digital deluxe and collector’s edition. The newly announced Digital Deluxe Edition for North America is $69.99 and includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hairstyle 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 also be available for purchase separately on January 26.
The North American physical Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hairstyle option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code all bundled in a custom collector’s box for $149.99.

For those who pre-order the digital copy, they’ll score the Origin Set Armor and Fair Wind Charm talisman for either Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Those who pre-order via the PlayStation Network will also receive a PS4 theme. 

But that’s not all, as Japan will once again get an exclusive custom PlayStation. This time, however, it will be a custom Monster Hunter World PS4 Pro. Yep, we’re finally seeing a PS4 Pro get added in a bundle. It looks pretty bad-ass if I say so myself.


If you’re heading to the Tokyo Game Show, you’ll have a chance to get some hands-on with the title. If you do, let us know how it is! We’d love to play it, but I don’t think we’re making it to Japan anytime soon.
