Monster Hunter World Final PS4 Beta Begins Tonight

Monster Hunter World

Capcom’s Monster Hunter World is set to release Friday, January 26th and it has generated a lot of buzz and anticipation. If you’re on the fence, or have never gotten to try a Monster Hunter game, you can download the third and final Monster Hunter World beta right now exclusively on PS4.

The beta begins tonight at 8pm CT and runs through January 21st at 8pm CT, so you can speed the weekend hunting monsters and determine whether or not you want to jump into the full game when it releases next week. The beta is just over 5GB and if you still have previous betas installed, you’re good to go already.

This beta will be testing the world wide matchmaking and server load, so you’ll be grouped with people from around the world or you can play single player (you can’t play with friends in the beta though).

We’re big Destiny players here, and one of our favorite Destiny YouTuber’s/Streamers (TrueVanguard) made this video of 5 Reasons Why Monster Hunter World is a Must Buy that is well worth watching if you don’t know much about the franchise (like me).

Here are the full Monster Hunter World beta details:

Single Player

  • Play online single player by departing alone on any of the quests.
  • You must be online even when playing single player.
