If you've been holding out for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World, your wait is nearly over.
The game is already available for pre-purchase on Steam and will release closer than many anticipated, on August 9th.
Intel Core i5-84460 or AMD FX-6300. The recommended requirements include an Intel i7-3370 processor with 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 256GB of hard disk space, and Windows 7 and up.
Additional Notes: Mouse, keyboard and game pads (both DirectInput and XInput) are supported. Pre-orderers will receive two bonuses in the Origin Set, a useful leveling set of armor with a nostalgic style, and the Fair Wind Charm, another useful item for early leveling that features a unique left-arm glow.

Britain and its allies blamed Russia for the attack on the Skripals, prompting a major Western expulsion of Russian diplomats. A bus that Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley used the night before they collapsed has also tested negative for the deadly agent.
Fast forward to today and it seems that Monster Hunter: World for PC is almost ready to go. The console versions have done well, but many have been holding out for the PC version, and we'll finally know when we'll be able to get our hands on it later today.
Capcom has been excellent in supporting the game beyond its release and hopefully, this will continue as the game hits PC platforms. We'll also find out which "distribution platform" the game will land on, which is odd, because many of us would assume Steam right out of the gate. Considering the lengthy delay between this port arriving and the initial launch of the console versions, let's hope Capcom can deliver a PC edition that does this magnificent monster-murderer justice.
We'll be back at 5PM to update this post with the release date and minimum specs.
In the same Q&A with PC Gamer, Tsujimoto confirmed that Monster Hunter: World on PC will not support cross-platform play, and wouldn't talk about mod support.
