Capcom has released all the details of the Monster Hunter: World beta, which will be held exclusively on the PlayStation 4 for PlayStation Plus subscribers from December 9 to December 12.

If you've been a big fan of Monster Hunter, then you're probably excited about the next installment, Monster Hunter: World which is coming out next year. During the beta, you can play solo or with three others in multiplayer and complete three different quests that are showing off two different places in the game. At their disposal will be a set of 14 different weapon types and players will no doubt find one that will suit their playstyle, which, as Capcom notes, "you can now change during quests at camp".

Unlike other cases, the Monster Hunter: World Beta files will take 5.9 GB of free space, which is a bare minimum for an RPG of its size.

As far as actual game features go, the beta gives a good look into the game. Also during the beta, you will have the option to choose your character between six different presets for males and females. The third mission is in the Wildspire Waste where players can traverse the swamplands to do battle against the Barroth. You can even try out each of them before heading out on a quest by visiting the series' all-new Training Room, included in the beta!

In their latest blog post, Capcom gives details on what time the beta launches. The video is in Japanese, but it runs over nine minutes long and shows off the game's story, some of the major NPCs, its breathtaking environment, and several gameplay elements.

The release date for the game will be January 26th, 2018 for Xbox and PlayStation 4, while PC will come out at a later date.
