PC fans eagerly awaiting the release of Monster Hunter: World are in for a surprise – the game releases next month.

Originally slated for a "Spring 2018" release, developer Capcom confirmed that the game will release August 9.

The good news doesn't stop there either. The PC version will include support for 2160p ultra HD resolution and 60 frames per second.

Console versions made a player choose between a higher resolution or a higher frame rate, with neither option offering a true 4K experience or solid 60 fps rate.

Capcom also detailed minimum and recommended PC specifications :

Minimum

  • Operating System: WINDOWS 7/8/8.1/10 (64-BIT required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 4460 3.2GHz / AMD FX 6300
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 / AMD Radeon R7 260x (2GB)

Recommended

  • Operating System: WINDOWS 7/8/8.1/10 (64-BIT required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 8350 4GHz or i7 3770 3.4GHz / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB) / AMD Radeon RX 570X (4GB)

While the base game will be available in early August, Capcom noted that "updates and fixes made in other platform versions will be gradually applied to the PC version."

Releasing back in January, Monster Hunter: World is already the best-selling game in Capcom's history, with over 8 million units already shipped for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

No doubt its release on PC will further cement this achievement for the game.

Monster Hunter: World is available to pre-order now on Steam.
