Monster Hunter: World will be coming to consoles in the very near future, on January 26th to be exact, though the release date for the PC version has not yet been revealed. While the wait for us PC gamers is certainly going to be excruciating, the good news is that the developers have said they will take as long as they need to in order to ensure that Monster Hunter: World ends up being a quality PC game.

I'm afraid I don't have any more information to share about the PC version, but what I can offer is the recently posted and fairly lengthy gameplay preview.

If you would like to learn more about Monster Hunter: World, or just check out some of the other gameplay previews, you should head over to the official website. On the other hand, if you're specifically interested in the type of weapons and combos you'll be able to play around with, you should take a look at an earlier series of videos detailing all of the available weapon types. Don't let the number of videos scare you off though, they're all fairly short and to the point. Enjoy!
