Hunters, mark your calendars and start assembling your hunting parties; Monster Hunter: World is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018!

With the release date rapidly approaching, it’s time to start setting the stage for your epic adventure in the game. We’ve already introduced a variety of new monsters and announced the return of classic fan-favorites, and in our latest trailer, you’ll see we not only show some new faces, but start raising some important questions about the game’s story. Watch it below:

That’s all we can share on that front for now, but I can’t wait to hear and read all your theories and speculations online. 😀

We are also very proud to be revealing today our Pre-order Bonus, Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector’s Edition for the game!


Pre-order any version of Monster Hunter: World on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and you’ll get the Origin Set armor (a true call-back to the very first Hunter armor design from the original Monster Hunter) as well as the Fair Wind Charm*, which will give you an Attack boost and the Divine Blessing skill. Pre-ordering any digital version on PS4 will get you a custom PS4 theme.

*Note that the Origin Set armor and Fair Wind Charm talisman may be made available through alternative means at a later date.


This edition includes the digital version of the game, along with a variety of additional communication and customization options. You’ll get 3 new gestures, 2 sticker sets, 1 new face paint and 1 new hairstyle. And they all go really well with the Samurai Set, which is also included in this package, and can be used to change the looks of any armor set. The PS4 version of the Digital Deluxe Edition also includes 14 weapon-themed PSN avatars.

The contents for the Digital Deluxe Edition will also be available for purchase separately on January 26.


This one is a must-have for any Monster Hunter collector out there. The North American version, shown above, comes with a physical version of the game, plus extra contents of the Digital Deluxe Edition (Samurai Set, 3 gestures, 2 sticker sets, face paint and hairstyle), a 32-page hardcover art book, a digital soundtrack code and a high-quality statue of the flagship monster, Nergigante!

As a longtime fan of the series, I know I’m getting myself a Collector’s Edition for sure. Which version have you set your eyes on? Whenever you’re ready, head on over to MonsterHunterWorld.com and get your copy of the game plus those pre-order bonuses!
