Monster Hunter: World Final Beta Revealed, New Trailer Highlights Elder Dragons & More DLC Details

Capcom is opening up Monster Hunter: World for one final beta phase. All PS4 owners are invited to try the game from January 18, through to January 22. The game will then launch on January 26, for both PS4 and Xbox One.

The beta will feature new content, so experienced players have a reason to return.

In addition to the previously released Great Jagras, Anjanath and Barroth quests, players will now be able to battle against the game’s terrifying and challenging flagship monster Nergigante.

As well as the final beta reveal, Capcom has treated us to a new trailer, which focuses on the Elder Dragons. Check it out below.

The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Another monster introduced in the trailer is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.

And finally, Capcom has offered a tease at what players can expect post-launch content to look like. The first major update will bring the fan-favorite monster “Deviljho” to the game.

Here’s what we know about the planned Monster Hunter: World DLC:

Capcom today confirmed that there are plans for post-launch support of Monster Hunter: World with regular content updates, as well as major title updates for free. The first major title update will be coming in Spring 2018 which includes the addition of the fan-favorite monster Deviljho. Players will be able to put their hunting skills to the test against this brute. The Deviljho must feed constantly and will devour anything in its way, even feeding on the largest of monsters with its massive jowls. This wild beast really is one for only the bravest of hunters to take on!
