Monster Hunter: World Graphics Getting a Boost With Free High Resolution Texture Pack

High-end PC players will be able to make Monster Hunter: World look that much better.

Avid fans of Monster Hunter World had to wait a while for the PC release, but it looks like they're finally ahead of the game. Capcom announced today that title update 5.2 will add support for free High Resolution Texture Pack DLC.

Players can download the High Resolution Texture Pack as free DLC on the Steam store. It'll require at least 40GB of free space and 8GB of VRAM graphic memory. There are more system requirements, but Capcom is holding onto those until after the update.

The title update offers more than just new DLC support. It'll also add a new anti-aliasing option for temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) and fast-approximate anti-aliasing (FXAA) at the same time, a new mouse control options, a new "Friends Can Join" options for private sessions, and several other bug fixes.

Title update 5.2 comes ahead of the upcoming Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World. The expansion includes new quest ranks, more monsters, and more story campaign content. Capcom says it'll be as large previous G or Ultimate expansions. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is planned for release in Fall 2019 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
