Capcom has delivered on their promise and have announced that the PC version of Monster Hunter: World will be launching next month on August 9, a date which is much sooner than most expected considering the previous Fall 2018 announcement.

As expected, it will be sold via Steam and those who pre-order will gain access to the Origin Armor Set and Fair Wind Charm.

System Specifications, which were leaked already were also officially announced.
