In case you’re on the fence whether to get Monster Hunter World, now’s the perfect time to get your feet wet as Capcom is offering a Monster Hunter World free trial for the PS4 and Xbox One! In the press release sent by Capcom, it mentions that the free trial will go live on December 11 at 4 p.m. PST and will last until December 17, 3:59 p.m. PST.
The Monster Hunter World free trial version will allow players to experience quests of up to three-star levels, and, online multiplayer will be available as well. And before you ask, yes, PS Plus and/or XBL Gold is required to enjoy the benefits of online multiplayer in the free trial. Any saved progress during this free trial will carry over to the main game to entice newbies to buy it after they try.
Also of note, Capcom has also announced that the Kulve Taroth Siege special event quest, which allows up to 16 players in groups of four each to team up towards one common goal, is set to return this December 20! However, this time, a tougher “Arch Tempered” version of the monster will be facing gamers. Don’t worry though as more powerful rewards will be given out too.
Lastly, Capcom has also announced The Appreciation Fest which will happen in the anniversary of the game’s release. Come January 2019, players can expect a newly decorated Gathering Hub, special equipment that can be obtained in brand new quests and other event-themed quests!
