Monster Hunter: World screenshot of the Behemoth monster coming to PC

Despite starting off fairly slowly, the PC version of Monster Hunter: World has now just about caught up with its console counterpart. Just this past month or so we've received the rather festive Winter Star eventLunastra and Arch-tempered Kirin, as well as the gold-plated raid boss Kulve Taroth.

On December 21st the PC version of Monster Hunter: World will be taking another step forward as Final Fantasy's iconic monster Behemoth will finally be making an appearance. Besides the cuddly monster himself, the update will also add a new Insect Glaive weapon, a new armor set, a new Moogle inspired Palico set, Cactuars as brand new critters that roam the land and cause trouble, as well as various other cosmetic effects.

According to the brief announcement message, numerous bug fixes are planned for this update as well, though no details have been given just yet. I can only hope the update will finally fix the annoying bug that downgrades texture quality and makes everything look like it's been smeared in oil, because while it might not exactly be common, it does tend to ruin an entire hunt whenever it does pop up.

Once more information becomes available I'll make sure to let you know as I'm quite excited myself. Until then, however, you can read a little bit more about this update by visiting Steam.

As a final note, allow me to send you off with the original trailer for the console Behemoth update. It might not be exactly the same as our upcoming patch, but it should be close enough to give you a good idea of what to expect. Enjoy!
