Monster Hunter: World Gets PS4 Beta, Exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn Content

Monster Hunter: World is launching early next year, but if you’re looking to get your sword-skills sharpened up, Capcom has you covered; a beta will be coming to PlayStation 4 owners this December.

If you’re subscribed to PlayStation Plus, you’ll get access to the beta, which runs from December 9 - 12. Here’s the official rundown of content, via press release:

Available starting 9th December, players from around the world can experience three fearsome quests as they join up with other hunters online or take on the beasts alone in the exclusive beta for PlayStation Plus users. Running for three days, hunters participating in the beta can tackle the hungry Great Jagras, a scavenger capable of swallowing other monsters whole, or the fiery and territorial Anjanath, both of which roam the dense and complex eco-system within the Ancient Forest. For those feeling brave enough they can adventure to the desert land of the Wildspire Waste where the armored Barroth can be found lurking in the muddy waters, waiting to unleash its devastating charge attack.

PS4 owners also get access to some specially-themed Horizon Zero Dawn gear, which will be available for crafting after completing a quest.

Monster Hunter: World releases January 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will arrive later.

Initially didnt draw me in, but watched so much of this from Youtube and now subscribed to a few youtubers, and Im hooked and cant wait for it. Hearing there is going to be a beta was the best news for me from PGW.
