The third and final beta for Monster Hunter World had begun on Friday, January 19, 2018, at 2 a.m. (UTC) and will conclude on Monday, January 22 at 1:59 a.m. (UTC).
The download client, for the PlayStation 4 beta, was made available to players for pre-load two days ahead of the start of the beta on the 17th of January 2018.
In regards to content for the beta, Capcom stated that: “For this third and final round of the beta, we’re adding a new quest featuring the fearsome Nergigante! Take this last opportunity to dive into the new world of Monster Hunter ahead of the game’s release!”
Our overall experience with the beta was rather great. Granted, Monster Hunter World has a steep learning curve; however, after a few practice sessions, you will find yourself wanting to take on the biggest, baddest monsters in the game.
Monster Hunter World’s performance was impressive, during the beta, when running on the PlayStation 4 Pro. The game ran at a solid pace with little to no drops when running in ‘Prioritise Graphics’ mode.
