Capcom has finally revealed Monster Hunter: World's PS4 and Xbox One release date. The open-world game will launch worldwide on January 26th, 2018. The company announced the news at Sony's Tokyo Game Show conference today, alongside a collector's edition that includes a special art box, a copy of the game's soundtrack, and a physical action figure of a new monster called Nerurigigantei.
In addition, Capcom and Sony revealed a special Liolaeus Edition PS4 Pro, decorated with some gorgeous Monster Hunter: World art. That PS4 model launches in Japan on December 7, though it has not yet been confirmed for a worldwide release.
Monster Hunter: World was first revealed at Sony's E3 2017 press conference with a trailer, which you can watch above. Like the recent 3DS installments, players can scale walls and leap onto monsters to attack them. The trailer also showcased many new elements, such as a weapon that resembles a machine gun and a grappling hook that allows you to swing. Players also now have the ability to fire off flares.
The game's console release date has now been revealed, but we still don't know when it will come to PC--it's definitely coming, but Capcom has only said it will be after the PS4 and Xbox One versions launch.
