[Update]: Monster Hunter: World has now arrived on PC, and so far it seems pretty darn good!

After a rather lengthy wait, Monster Hunter: World will finally be coming to PC this August 9th. While all of the technical improvements and PC-exclusive features have not been announced just yet, you might be interested to hear that the minimum and recommended PC system requirements have now been posted.

You'll find the full list down below, and thankfully it appears to be fairly standard for a AAA game these days. The one thing I have to specifically highlight is that unlike Shenmue 3 and Soulcalibur VI, Monster Hunter: World will only require 20 GB of hard drive space, which should be easy enough to fit on any SSD. That little diversion aside, here are the system requirements:

Recommended - 30FPS at 1080p on HIGH graphic settings.

OS:WINDOWS 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-BIT Required)

Additional Notes: Mouse, keyboard and game pads (both DirectInput and XInput) are supported.

If you would like to learn more about Monster Hunter: World, or just grab yourself a copy once it becomes available this August 9th, you should head on over to either Steam or the official website.

And as a final note, allow me to send you off with the recently posted PC trailer. It's sadly not a very long video, but it should give you a pretty good idea of what the visuals will be like on PC. Enjoy!
