This event includes collaborative dungeons that send hunters to fight Massacre Demon Diablos, which we've seen in the game before. With the removal of loading screens, the maps in Monster Hunter: World feel like a series of small interconnected locations with plenty of verticality.

We are just days away from the arrival of Monster Hunter World on PS4 and Xbox One and the moment has nearly arrived for more excitement for the fans of the series, who are preparing for another season of hunting. Additionally, the team considered which hardware would be the best fit for the game, eventually deciding to release it on PS4 and Xbox One, as far as consoles are concerned. So [the decision was made] before the Switch was even announced or on sale.

According to the official Monster Hunter World website, the version 1.01 update will weigh in at roughly 815 MB, though the exact file size will likely vary depending on which console you're playing the game on. We don't just look at everything. Granted, Monster Hunter World has a steep learning curve; however, after a few practice sessions, you will find yourself wanting to take on the biggest, baddest monsters in the game. It's more like 'if we want to achieve this kind of game concept, where's the best place to achieve that?' and for this title the Playstation 4 and Xbox One were the best fit for us. Is this soul-crushing news for you? There are brand new Assist Evolutions and brand new Ultimate Evolutions for both the Male Hunter and the Female Hunter and their equipment, and you can obtain evolution materials from the collaborative dungeons to help them get there.
