Finally, PC players can go on the hunt.

News by Mike Williams, .

Capcom promised to tell players when they could expect to finally play Monster Hunter: World on PC today. Well, it seems that one part of Capcom jumped the gun a few minutes early. Monster Hunter: World's Steam store page went live early, showing a release date of August 9, 2018.

Your time is now, PC players.

The store page also features the game's minimum and recommended system requirements. Those are as follows:

MINIMUM:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: WINDOWS 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4460, 3.20GHz or AMD FX-6300
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x (VRAM 2GB)
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 20 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectSound (DirectX 9.0c)

RECOMMENDED:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: WINDOWS 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 3.4GHz or Intel Core i3 8350 4GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X

It's worth noting that both the minimum and recommended system specifications have additional notes. On the minimum side, it notes that when graphics settings are at "Low", the game will run at 1080p resolution and 30 FPS. On the recommended side, it says that when graphics are set to "High" it'll run at the same. This is the game's intended baseline on PC.

Monster Hunter: World does have graphical settings above "High" and it can run at 60 FPS, so don't let those notes worry you. This was confirmed by Capcom UK Community Manager Josh Dahdrai on Twitter.

The Steam store page also confirms that Monster Hunter: World on PC will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper software. PC players have avoid Denuvo games in the past because it can cause issues on some systems.

    Yes! Was honestly worried when they didn't talk about it we might not get it until October. Rather we got it already but a month away isn't too bad. Hopefully there will be enough people playing it on PC to find a group like on PS4.

    If I'm ever to get into MonHun, this is probably the best chance for me. I'll wait until it's tested on PC by Digital Foundry.

    At the start of the year i said I'd probably skip this because I figured by this point in the year there'd be a ton of games that caught my attention.

    But the only big game to do that for me is Pillars of Eternity 2, everything else has been a small indie title. Sooooo, I might actually just get this sooner than I thought.
