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.
