Another major news coming from this event is that Capcom has also confirmed that more monsters will be added to the game through post-release update patches.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Monster Hunter: World will be an open world game in a similar vein as Capcom's previous titles, but will feature a "living ecosystem" that allows players to use and destroy bits of it and use monster behaviour to their advantage. Developer Phoenix Labs is stacked with former staffers from League of Legends' Riot Games, but they are nevertheless an underdog in a genre more or less invented by Capcom's long-running franchise.

The common occurring of delayed releases for the PC is something which gamers have grown accustomed to and if you're among them, then you shouldn't be surprised that Monster Hunter World for the PC has been delayed further. The game launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26. More information will be announced on a later date. Japan will be getting exclusive Monster Hunter World PS4 Slim bundles, alongside custom controllers. These may come in the form of new monsters, quests, gear, or areas which might be readily available for the PC along with the free downloadable content (DLC). Dauntless aims to translate the Monster Hunter formula into a more elegant, Western-friendly package that's built for PC from the ground up.

Will 2018 be as great for games as a year ago?
