Capcom recently revealed the release date of Monster Hunter World for PC; however, players still have some doubts about this version of the title. Fortunately, the company recently spoke about the presence of cross-play, mods and future updates.
Ryozo Tsujimoto, the producer of the game, said that Monster Hunter World will not have cross-play despite the arrival of its PC version. So, its matchmaking system will only match Steam users.
As for the mods, Tsujimoto was not very clear, because he only said that for now, Capcom has nothing to announce. This does not completely close the possibilities of a future implementation of this support.
Tsujimoto said that they are working to synchronize the content and, as much as possible, the updates of the PC version with the consoles version. “I want to synch these up as much as possible, but as mentioned previously regarding title updates, the differences in versions between platforms may prevent them being completely the same time,” assured the creative during an interview with PC Gamer.
The creative also said that the arrival of balance patches could be different. Because if the developers detect specific problems on PC or consoles, they will do everything to eliminate them with an additional update as soon as possible.
“If there was an issue common to all platforms, however, doing it piecemeal would be less preferable than fixing every version at the same time so that everyone has the same experience,” Tsujimoto said.
Monster Hunter World will arrive on PC on August 9.
