We finally have a release date for Monster Hunter: World for Playstation 4 and Xbox One! The global release will be January 26th, 2018, and a PC release date will follow after. Pre-orders have begun for bonus incentives for the standard version or the Digital Deluxe/physical Collector’s Edition. Players that pre-order Monster Hunter: World in North America on either Xbox One or PS4 either digitally or at participating retailers will receive access to special pre-order bonuses, including the Origin Set Armor and the Fair Wind Charm talisman (this may become available through alternative means later), which offers improved starting defense and offense stat boosts for the hunter as well as a useful gathering skill. For those that pre-order any digital version from the PS Store, they will also receive instant access to a custom PS4 theme.
The Digital Deluxe edition for North America is 69.99 and includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options for in-game use: Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint/hairstyle. The PS4 version also includes 14 weapon-themed PSN avatars. The contents for it will be available for purchase separately on January 26th. 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.
