Monster Hunter: World

 
Annual Monster Hunter concert to stream online later this monthSep 9, 2021 - VG247Details about the annual Monster Hunter orchestral concert were recently released, an annual event that serves as a showcase for the music of publisher Capcom’s popular action series. Fans can watch the concert online on September 28. Started in 2009 to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the series, the show has been yearly since 2014 as the composers of the games join with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra to play some of the most memorable music in the series. In 2019, the show took to the road, playing five cities in Japan to celebrate the 15th anniversary. When the pandemic hit in 2020, though, the show was conducted online for the first time, allowing fans worldwide to enjoy the music. Hirofumi Kurita will be handling conducting duties as he has since 2014, and series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto will give a behind-the-scenes speech. A host of other musicians will join them to play the music from the hit series.

The Monster Hunter Orchestra Concert has been an annual fixture in Capcom's calendar since 2014, with last year's show marking the first time the concert was held online. 2021's effort promises "a powerful combination of video visuals featuring beloved characters and monsters from the game, along with a full orchestra performance of tracks from the series" by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Hirofumi Kurita, who's been part of the show since its 2014 debut, returns as conductor, and Capcom says this year's music selection from across the Monster Hunter series will be augmented by tracks from this year's steller Monster Hunter Rise.

In a rare exception to the general rule that games get delayed, that's earlier than we were expecting - publisher Capcom had previously planned to launch in autumn. That said, it came out on consoles in January, so. Capcom has also confirmed the minimum and recommend system requirements for what has already become the best-selling game in its history, with over eight million units shipped to consoles worldwide. At a minimum, you'll need a GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x with 2GB VRAM or more; an Intel i5-4460 at 3.20 GHz or an AMD FX-6300 (or better); 8 GB of RAM; 20 GB of storage; DirectX version 11; and Windows 7 or above (64-bit required). This will deliver 30fps at 1080p on low graphics settings. Mouse, keyboard, and game pads (both DirectInput and XInput) are supported. Recommended specs suggest a GTX 1060 (VRAM 3GB) or Radeon RX 570X (VRAM 4GB); an Intel i3 8350 at 4GHz, or an Intel i7 3770 at 3.4GHz, or an AMD Ryzen 5 - all other requirements, including RAM, are the same as the minimum spec. This will deliver 30fps at 1080p on high graphics settings. Don't want to wait a month to slay some giant monsters? There's plenty of fodder for your hungry sword in the best RPGs on PC.

Sony Pictures is aware of the concern, and has made the wise decision to put the Monster Hunter movie out on Christmas Day, so we have something to truly bring us all together in joy and good spirit. IGN has confirmed the new release date for the movie based on the action-RPG games. Now, at least in the US, Monster Hunter will open in theaters and IMAX on December 25, moved up five days from the December 30 that was teased in the first trailer. Monster Hunter's release date has bounced around quite a bit due to the pandemic, starting at September 4, then jumping to April 23, 2021, before coming back to December 30, and moving forward again to December 25. The Paul W. S. Anderson-directed blockbuster will now be in direct competition with Wonder Woman 1984 and Disney's Soul, both of which will be hitting streaming services the same day, the former HBO Max, the latter Disney Plus. If you're in Germany, Austria, or the Netherlands, you'll be able to catch Monster Hunter from December 3. Nothing on specific dates for UK and Ireland just yet, but we'll keep you informed.

Capcom confirmed in November that it was the subject of a ransomware attack, which compromised a wide array of the company's private information. The breach occurred on November 2, and on November 4 Capcom issued a press release which said "at present there is no indication that any customer information was breached". However, the company said later in November, that some player information was among the compromised data, and today has updated the total number of potentially compromised information affects around 400,000 people.

The Monster Hunter movie is receiving edits worldwide after a joke with racist overtones caused the film to be pulled from Chinese theatres. Director Paul W. S. Anderson has issued an apology, as has Asian-American actor Jin Au-Yeung, who performed the line in the film. The scene will be removed from all versions of the film worldwide. "I am absolutely devastated that a line from our movie, Monster Hunter, has offended some audience members in China" Anderson says in a statement provided to Deadline. "I apologize for any anxiety or upset that this line and its interpretation caused. Monster Hunter was made as fun entertainment and I am mortified that anything within it has caused unintentional offense. We have respectfully removed the line from the movie. It was never our intention to send a message of discrimination or disrespect to anyone. To the contrary - at its heart our movie is about unity." The controversy became apparent to English-speaking game fans thanks to a thread on Twitter, where Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad posted some footage of the dialogue for the movie, and ran-through why audience members are unhappy. In the scene, one character asks another "What kind of knees are these?" following up with "Chi-knees." The pair are American soldiers, as the protagonists are a team of military recruits that get transported to the world of the games. As Ahmad explains, this joke has racial connotations due to a playground chant used to disparage people of Asian heritage in English-speaking countries. Read the rest of the story...

But one modder has gone above and beyond to create what may be the mother of them all: a mod that lets you fight Doom Eternal's Marauder in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Doom Eternal x Monster Hunter World is the nightmare you've been waiting to face in Monster Hunter. The Marauder is perhaps Doom Eternal's most controversial addition to the FPS game's bestiary, a highly technical foe capable of reflecting your attacks and forcing the player to slow down and watch for specific tells before responding. To put this another way, the Marauder is a huge pain in the ass, and slapping him around with a Monster Hunter-sized greatsword seems like just what the doctor ordered. Created by modders Lyra and Crimson, Doom Eternal x Monster Hunter World does not require ownership of Doom Eternal, but you will need Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The Marauder model here is attached to the Leshen skeleton introduced in the Witcher 3 DLC last year. Read the rest of the story...

Anderson's Monster Hunter movie is, somewhat unbelievably, out next week, and to celebrate its whatever-the-opposite-of highly-anticipated-is arrival, Capcom is shoving its presence into Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, with a special crossover event. From 4pm PST next Thursday, 3rd December (that's midnight on 4th December in the UK), owners of Monster Hunter World's Iceborne expansion can access a special two-part single-player side story that casts players as Milla Jovovich's Monster Hunter movie character, Artemis. Complete with Milla Jovovich's likeness and everything. Part one of the new side story, The New World, pits Artemis against a Black Diablos in the Wildspire Waste, granting the materials needed to craft the Artemis α+ armour set - which comes stuffed with a broad range of handy skills, including Earplugs, Health Boost, Stun Resistance, Great Luck, and Hasten Recovery. Read more Play as Milla Jovovich in the event quests coming to Monster Hunter WorldNov 25, 2020 - PCGamesNIn an odd turn of events, Monster Hunter World is crossing over with the upcoming Monster Hunter movie. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Capcom is releasing two limited-time event quests where you'll have the opportunity to play as Artemis (voiced by Milla Jovovich), the star of the Monster Hunter movie. The event quests begin similarly to the plot of the movie - US army ranger Captain Artemis finds herself in the world of Monster Hunter after falling through a mysterious portal. Seriously. Though Artemis will be speaking English throughout these event quests, the NPCs in the world will speak in Monster Hunter language. If you've watched the Monster Hunter movie trailer, we imagine they're going for a similar vibe. The first event quest pits Artemis against a Black Diablos in the Wildspire Waste. Taking down the Diablos rewards you with the materials needed to create the Artemis alpha armour set, the same set she wears in the movie. As for the second quest, Artemis has a much larger challenge on her hands: a giant Rathalos.

All Rights Re...Paul W.S. Anderson's Monster Hunter movie finally looks like Monster Hunter in new trailerNov 18, 2020 - EUROGAMER.netIt really shouldn't be hard not to screw up a Monster Hunter movie. After all, there aren't any fan-favourite characters to ruin, and there certainly isn't much of a story; all it really needs are big monsters, big weapons, lavish scenery, and, yes, big cats. So it's gratifying to see Paul W.S. Anderson's Monster Hunter movie finally being presented, in a new trailer for its Chinese release, as the kind of Monster Hunter movie fans of the series might actually want to watch. Gone is the inexplicable emphasis on the US military seen in Sony Pictures' last Monster Hunter trailer, which largely seemed to suggest that everyone involved hadn't got even the faintest clue what Monster Hunter actually was, and in are a host of familiar elements that finally makes this cinematic spin on Capcom's long-running franchise feel like part of the same universe. There are sweeping, fantastical landscapes that go beyond 'brown desert', there's a heaving menagerie of creatures that indicate Anderson did more research than a cursory glance at a Monster Hunter box cover, and we also get a brief tease of the Palico chef in his natural cooking habitat. There's even a welcome bit of humour, notably absent in the previous stony faced trailer, to go with all the prerequisite big weapons and action set-pieces.

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.
