The PS4 Monster Hunter World beta has begun! The client is available to download from the PlayStation store, and participation is open to all.
Participants are able to complete three quests, both in single player and multiplayer. While progress does not carry over to the retail release, completion of all three quests earns players some special rewards to use in the retail version of the game.
Completing any of the three quests featured in the beta will earn you one Face Paint to customize your character with in the full retail version.
Completing all three quests for the first time will earn you item sets you can use in the full retail version. Items include lifepowder, max potions, shock traps, and lots more that will help you out on the hunt!
I’ve never been able to get on board with Monster Hunter on 3DS, though I know a lot of people love it. The barrier to entry just seems to high unless you have a friend guiding you through the opening hours. However, word on the street is that Capcom made a lot of changes to this version of the game to make it more welcoming to new players. The game looks beautiful, so I’m willing to give it a shot if I can find the time this weekend.
