Monster Hunter: World

 
Monster Hunter: World Ancient Leshen how to fight it, what is its weaknessMay 17, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunMonster Hunter: World has a couple of crossover events, but the most ambitious puts us in the shoes of Geralt of Rivia as he hunts down the monster that transported him and a Nekker to the forest. This turns out to be the Leshen who has taken up residence in the Ancient Forest and disturbed the natural order. You’ll therefore need to put it down. Those new to hunting monsters, or if you just need to find a particular monster guide to get up to Hunter Rank 16 – needed to start this quest – should head over to our hub for a plethora of guides.

The trial lets you play the opening section of Capcom's wildly popular game. All eight assignments up to Hunter Rank 4 / 3★ quests are available as part of the free trial. You start by customising your hunter, then head to the New World as a member of the Research Commission to solve the mystery of the Elder Crossing.

Capcom shipped 2m copies of the action game, it confirmed in a financial report. Shipped doesn't mean sales to customers, but Capcom stressed Devil May Cry 5, alongside Resident Evil 2, had "exceeded expectations". Devil May Cry 5 is the first "mainline" entry in the series for over 10 years, and follows Ninja Theory's excellent but, according to Capcom, non-mainline DmC: Devil May Cry, which came out in 2013. Read more You can be Iron Man or One Punch Man in Monster Hunter: World nowMay 10, 2019 - PC GamerThere are Monster Hunter: World mods that make the game a bit more convenient, giving you more information on monster health or highlighting items to make them easier to pick up. Then there are the actual important mods, like the one that turns Nergigante into Thomas the Tank Engine, or these mods, which replace your hunter with comic book characters. Why be a normal hunter when you could be Iron Man, equipped with Thor's hammer and Captain America's shield for good measure? This mod, called "I' m iron man" (I love that unnecessary space) comes in a few pieces. There are male and female Iron Man armor variants, a skin replacing the sword and shield weapon Grand Barong, and another weapon reskin that turns some Kulve Taroth silver weapons into a pair of Infinity Gauntlets. I was pretty into modder crimsonfaust's Iron Man mod until I saw their One Punch Man mod, which looks exactly the right amount of stupid to be a great mod. If you're not familiar with One Punch man, all you need to know is that he's a normal guy who did 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and ran 10 kilometers every day, and then got so strong he can destroy anything in a single punch. This mod makes you look like the wonderfully dopey One Punch Man, though it does not, I need to point out, make you KO monsters in a single hit. Still, it's pretty great. Here's another video of someone using the mod, punching monsters into submission. If neither comic book man is quite what you're looking for, don't forget you can also play MHW as Geralt of Rivia in a special quest right now.

(more…) Monster Hunter: World's Iceborne expansion coming to PC this winterMay 10, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Encouraging LARPing, Capcom have announced that Monster Hunter: World‘s icy Iceborne expansion won’t arrive on PC until we’re already wrapped up in scarves and mittens, coming our way this winter after a console debut in September. Yes, it is unfortunate that our version is still lagging behind, but isn’t it fitting to be exploring an icy island while huddling around your PC for warmth? That’s more IMMERSIVE than any light-up keyboard. Capcom blasted a load of details and videos about the expansion last night, including a look at a beastie swimming through snow with its horn poking out like a shark’s fin. Nope! (more…) Monster Hunter World: Iceborne PC release date, Velkhana, Tigrex's RoarMay 10, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunWith the brand new Witcher update finally hitting PC this week, there was more news on exactly what to expect from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Hunters will be crossing the sea to the new region known as Hoarfrost Reach, where despite the cold forest being a seemingly inhabitable tundra on the surface, it’s teeming with life. We’ll go over all of what has been revealed and what to expect in the coming expansion. In order to prepare for the new expansion that will be coming at some point, check out our extensive to get up to speed with the basics, as well as all the more in-depth strategies for item crafting and individual monster fights. While the free updates are still happening for the base game, we should probably begin with the hottest news and show everything we know about . (more…) Capcom details Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's massive new biome, new creatures, moreMay 9, 2019 - EurogamerFollowing on from the gameplay trailer reveal of Monster Hunter World expansion Iceborne, Capcom has shared a few more details on what players can expect to see when the paid update hits PS4 and Xbox One on 6th September. As previously announced, Iceborne, which requires the Monster Hunter World base game to play, will introduce a brand-new story - picking up after the ending of the main game - as well as new monsters, and a new high-level rank. The latter, one step above High Rank, will be known as Master Rank, and is analogous to the G Rank seen in previous Monster Hunter games. In many ways, though, the star of the show in Iceborne will be its new biome, known as Hoarfrost Reach - a snowy, extremely cold area that distinguishes itself from the base game both visually and in terms of its new gameplay elements. The extreme cold will, for instance, decrease hunters' stamina, making it much harder to battle the area's formidable creatures. Thankfully, effects of the cold can be countered (in much the same way as it could in earlier Monster Hunter games) by drinking Hot Drinks.

I could probably just write the word NARGACUGA in massive letters and be done with it, but there's a whole lot more on show in Iceborne's beefy new trailer, which aired as part of Sony's State of Play livestream. Alongside a glimpse of the snowy wastes that form Monster Hunter World's new biome in Iceborne, the trailer offers a look at some of the new and returning beasts that fearless hunters will be up against, come 6th September. Following the trailer reveal, Capcom confirmed that Iceborne's newly unveiled September release date applies to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, Monster Hunter World players on PC will unfortunately need to wait a little longer for the expansion; at present, it's scheduled to reach the platform some time "this winter". Read more Monster Hunter: World s Witcher event has begun on PCMay 9, 2019 - PC GamerThe Monster Hunter: World crossover event with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has kicked off, meaning you can venture around the New World as Geralt of Rivia. The event introduces a new permanent contract called Trouble in the Ancient Forest, which you’ll be able to start if you’re Hunter Rank 16 or higher. Just hop into the game and look for a group of Felynes on the deck of the Astera in the trade yard. Once you talk with them, you’ll be invited to the Research Base, which is where you’ll get your introduction to Geralt, who will agree to look into some strange events going on in the Ancient Forest. At this point, you can start playing as good old Geralt right away, heading straight into the quest. He's equipped with a special version of Monster Hunter: World's sword and shield that looks just like the pair of steel and silver swords he uses in The Witcher 3. Geralt’s English lines are performed by Doug Cockle, who voiced him in The Witcher series. It’s a good thing too, because he has a lot of lines from what I’ve seen so far. Geralt sets to work investigating right away, constantly muttering to himself as he examines the carcass of an aptonoth. This contract is available permanently, so there’s no rush on getting this one done. However, you’ll only have from May 17-30 to take on Ciri’s half of the crossover, which is a multiplayer hunt for a much tougher beast. The content update includes a patch, and you can find the details about that over on Steam . Monster Hunter: World's Witcher crossover is finally on PCMay 9, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Ol’ Geralt has gone tumbling through another magical portal, this time travelling from the world of The Witcher 3 to Monster Hunter: World. The crossover event lets us play as Geralt to track and murder a Witcher monster, the leshen treeman, with his usual Witching ways. Do so and you can get his armour and sword, plus a gruesome outfit for your Palico catfriend. A second, tougher part of the crossover starring Ciri will follow later this month with her gear as rewards, but only for a few weeks.

Important: By default, Steam will automatically download both the game and High Resolution Texture Pack DLC when the update goes live. To disable the auto-update feature, please follow the steps outlined below before then. 1. Launch the Steam client application 2. Right click on MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD from your Library and select View  Downloadable Content 3. Uncheck the High Resolution Texture Pack DLC Major Content Monster Hunter: World and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaboration content is now on Steam! Check the news for more details! Major Additions and Changes Guild Cards: Certain poses or expressions may not be available when using armor or layered armor obtainable via the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt content. Simplified Chinese: New words have been added to the banned word list for Simplified Chinese. A feature has been added to allow a player's or Palico's name to be edited if it contains any word from this list prior to update 6.00. Bug Fixes Mantle Duration: A bug has been fixed where the duration of an active mantle would continue to count down even if the player idled, or was equipped with one of the following weapons drawn: Switch Axe (Sword Mode), Charge Blade (Axe Mode), Light Bowgun, or Heavy Bowgun. Item Use: A bug has been fixed that allowed players to use an item unintentionally. When a weapon is drawn, players can either press X two times to sheathe their weapon and consume an item, or hold down X once to do both actions consecutively. However, if the Dash Settings are changed to allow running by using both the Left Stick and R button, players could use an item unintentionally if they held down the Left Stick while tapping the X button. This has been fixed so that tapping the X button will not consume an item if the player is holding down dash. Note: This issue does not occur if Dash Settings are set to allow running using only the RB button. If your Dash Settings are set to the Left Stick, this bug occurred when holding down the RB button and tapping the X button, but has also been fixed. Speed Crawler: A bug has been fixed that caused the Speed Crawler effect to stop working properly after update Ver. 5.2. It is now working as intended. Dual Blades/Hammer/Hunting Horn/Insect Glaive/Light Bowgun/Heavy Bowgun: A bug has been fixed where a neutral attack would be performed when the player executed an attack with the Left Stick and the attack button while the player was in the middle of a turning animation. However, if the player performs a Charged Upswing or Charged Brutal Upswing while turning and charging power, the attack is designed to add movement if the game detects that they are holding the Left Stick forward. In this situation, players can perform a neutral Charged Upswing if they input the attack fast enough, and is not considered a bug. Switch Axe: A bug has been fixed where ...Steam Charts: Blood From A Four-Year-Old EditionMay 6, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun OK, two things on the agenda. Firstly, I’m heading off on my expedition to attempt to break the Curse Of Steam Charts for the next couple of weeks. I’m returning to Ursidae, Caniformia, to find that ancient temple once more and attempt to appease the enraged spirit of Horace. Hopefully we’ll never speak again! Secondly, Toby’s back! This week’s Steam Charts are brought to you through the filter of a four year old who was really excited about doing this again, but then got into a right grump about it as soon as we started. But his naming skills remain as excellent as ever. (more…) Steam Charts: Oh So This Is A Thing EditionApr 29, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Haha, that was funny last week wasn’t it!

Monster Hunter World's Witcher crossover, which arrived on PS4 and Xbox One back in February, consists of a decently sized single-player mission and some multiplayer-enabled questing. The first of these, a new Special Assignment known as Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest, is a permanent addition to the game, and is designed for solo hunters at HR16. It casts players as everybody's favourite beard-y Witcher, Geralt of Rivia (with voice actor Doug Cockle even providing new lines), and features Geralt-exclusive abilities, side quests, multiple endings, and a fight with a familiar Witcher foe - the formidable, forest-dwelling Leshen. Read more Geralt and Ciri finally visit Monster Hunter: World on May 9thApr 10, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunAfter months of lazing around on consoles, Geralt Of Rivia is finally stumbling through the portal to Monster Hunter: World on PC. Capcom have picked May 9th for the debut of this impressively well fleshed-out crossover. It features a fully voiced, branching story mission where you get to play as everyone’s favourite grumpy monster-slayer from The Witcher series, a new monster (plus one variant) from that world. There’s also a trio of big perks to grind for. Dedicated hunters can permanently unlock Geralt, Ciri and horrible Nekkers to fight, or capture to swap your Palico for. (more…) Geralt is finally coming to Monster Hunter: World on PC next monthApr 9, 2019 - PC GamerGeralt of Rivia may be the Witcher, but his job description has always been monster hunter, which makes his upcoming appearance in Monster Hunter: World perhaps the game’s most sensible crossover event yet. Capcom has announced the collaboration event will kick off on PC May 9, and it’ll feature new quests and Witchery gear to earn. The Witcher/Monster Hunter crossover is perhaps the most involved mash-up Capcom has created to date. Geralt of Rivia himself appears in the New World, with brand-new gravelly Geralt lines performed by the actors from the original games. Using Geralt’s silver sword, you’ll have to hunt down a Leshen, which you may remember as an antlered forest abomination from The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.  The new special assignment is called Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest, and it features several possible endings that depend on the choices you make throughout the quest chain. Finishing the quest provides a bunch of Witcher-themed Monster Hunter goodies, plus materials for crafting a set of Geralt’s armor a sword and shield set based on his trademark silver monster-hunting blade. Oh, and you can craft a Nekker outfit for your Palico. You’ll need to be Hunter Rank 16 to take on the first new quest, which means you’ll need to have finished the story campaign. Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten around to doing that yet, though—unlike most of the other special events in Monster Hunter: World, this new Witcher quest will be available permanently. Events like these are typically split into two phases, and this is no exception. Starting May 17, the second half of the crossover opens up, which centers on a multiplayer hunting event for the much more powerful Ancient Leshen. That quest will be available to players at Hunter Rank 50 or higher. More details are available over on Steam . Monster Hunter: World is Steam’s Biggest New Release of 2018 with Over 240k Concurrent Players OnlineAug 9, 2018 - GitHypMonster Hunter: World’s PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC reveal was one of the best moments of E3 2017. But Capcom crushed the hearts of PC gamers when they revealed the game would be coming to PC seven months after its console launch. Today, Monster Hunter: World finally released on Steam, and by the looks of it, PC gamers aren’t upset about the delay anymore. Launching just an hour ago on Steam, Monster Hunter: World already has over 240k concurrent players online; and with the weekend right around the corner, that number is expected to go up even further during prime hours. As it stands right now, MHW is currently ranked #4 on Steam's list of most played games, right behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and gaining traction with a gain of 53k players in its second hour. Even if the numbers were to not increase (which they will), Monster Hunter: World has already become Steam’s biggest new release of the year, easily doubling Realm Royale’s 105k player peak back in June 2018.
