I en intervju med Mein-MMO berättar Ryozo Tsujimoto, producent av Monster Hunter: World, att spelet kommer att ta mellan 40 och 50 timmar att slutföra, beroende spelare. Enligt min skakiga skoltyska (samt med stöd av Google Translate) säger Tsujimoto också att det inte varit ett Monster Hunter om det inte fanns ursäkter att fortsätta äventyret bortom eftertexterna.

Jag både räknar med och hoppas på att äventyret kommer hålla längre än 40–50 timmar. Om det är så magnifikt som jag upplevde när jag testade spelet kommer jag vilja stanna kvar.

Snart får vi ännu en chans att doppa tårna i en beta, också den här gången på Playstation 4. Det blir samma innehåll som sist och vill du veta mer ska du kika undertill.

Quests: The beta features 3 quests across 2 environments from the game. In the Ancient Forest, you can hunt a fierce yet beginner-friendly Great Jagras or as a more experienced player confront the mighty threat of an Anjanath. In the Wildspire Waste, a massive, dry expanse with swamplands, you can face off against the intermediate level mud-slinging Barroth.

Rewards: In addition to an unquantifiable amount of fun, complete each quest and you’ll get some useful bonus items in the full game! Just make sure you use the same Sony Entertainment Network account for both the beta and the full game.

Additional Notes: Each quest can be done solo or with up to three other players online, and you’ll be able to choose from 14 different weapon types based on your preferred playstyle, which you can now change during quests at camp. 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! Potions and other supplies will be provided on quests during the beta, but you’ll have to fetch your own food and drinks outside the game for those long gameplay sessions.

And one final note – this beta is just a taste for what the quests will look and feel like in the full game. The beta features a game currently in development and some aspects about balance may be different from the full game, but the satisfaction of tracking and bringing down a giant monster you’ll find is all there.
