    Capcom's mega hit, Monster Hunter: World launched earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, where it reached critical acclaim and made its way to becoming the company's highest selling game, ever. And on August 9th, the game will be hitting the PC market as well. The full minimum and recommended specs can be found below.

    The PC port of the game will have everything that the console versions did at launch, and special DLC will be available post-launch. Those who pre-order can get two special items: The Origin Set, which is a type of armor reminiscent of older Monster Hunter titles, as well as a Fair Wind Charm, which when equipped, ups your attack power.

    Now it might be somewhat playable.
    It's still the same old archaic combat system at its core, but it's at least a bit better than normal.
    But it's unbearably painful to play this on console at a jittery 30 fps.

    I think it was locked at 60 on the PS4 Pro, I played on an OG PS4 so I don't know for sure. The framerate didnt really bother me but I am not picky about that kinda stuff.

    Now I've got convince myself this is worth anything so I can play it and cry about how repetitive it is! Wait... No...

    These delayed releases make me feel like I've missed the train already.

    Goddamn, finally. I've been avoiding the PS4 version because it has jittery 30fps which is (IMO) awful for any action combat game like this, so nice to see there's finally actual info on the PC release. Doubt I'll pre-order it, but I'll likely pick it up close to release.

    On PS4 Pro, it got up to like 50fps max, as it fluctuated. Honestly I get really motion sick with most console 30fps/motion blur-ridden games, so a PC version is welcome to me--shame all my friends who play these games have PS4s. :nayps3:

    pls get gaming pc, senpai

    I am a console peasant and probably will be for a while. I actually have a decent Asus with a GTX 960 but I use that for work.

    Nope, 40/50FPS, sometimes it can drop to like 30-something I think

    Hell yeah. For whatever reason I didn't think this was coming out until later in Fall, so good news there. Textures and effects are looking beautiful on PC. Too bad there's no pre-order discount, but that's asking a lot given this is Capcom.

    Oh yeah even just a few google searches say that it never steadied out at 60 fps even in performance mode. Wow.

    Well good to know that I am not soured by bad framerates in games. And now I know that I can just go out and buy an OG PS4 if mine ever bites the dust. I dont need a PS4 Pro.

    Does anyone here have a badass enough rig to crank the graphics processing to 11 and break the knob off? I bet this game would look great.

    I plan to give it a go at 4K even if I have to turn down some quality settings a little. Worst case, optimization isn't the greatest and I have to roll with 1440p maxed out instead.

    According to your sig, we have almost the same rig. Can a 1070 really potentially hit 1440/60 on this? I'd be psyched if so. I tend to underestimate my PC so maybe that's totally plausible and I'm just crazy.

    It'll do 4K/60 on some games as pretty/prettier than this, so really it just comes down to optimization. I go to 1440p only when I really have to, as was the case with Deux Ex: Mankind Divided when it first launched, but it might be better now that it's had some patching.

    I wanna see what it looks like at 4k. Wonder if my system will struggle.

    Edit: Just read on PCGamer (take it how you will) that the PC version will have graphical "parity with the console version".. But they MAY change that with a future update.. Um? Why?

    that because crapcom decided to nerf the pc mustard race version on purpose to not overshame $ony's shitty hardware.
