‘God Eater 3’ on Switch Brings Franchise Back to Its RootsHands-On: ‘Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’ Beta Left Us Hung… Stay on target Capcom’s efforts to make Monster Hunter: World a global title have paid off big time. It hasn’t even been out a full month but it is already the fastest selling game in Capcom’s history. Five million copies were shipped in three days after the game’s launch. Now, Capcom is reporting it has shipped 6 million copies. This is truly an astonishing feat for a franchise deemed too “niche” for Western audiences.Units shipped do not represent copies sold to actual customers, but it gives a good indication of how popular a game is. According to Forbes, Monster Hunter: World is the top paid game on both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live. It has overtaken PUBG as the top paid game on Xbox. This last fact is astounding to me considering how, on its surface, Monster Hunter: World doesn’t seem like a game Xbox fans would particularly care for. MHW topping PSN isn’t exactly surprising given how the series began on PlayStation 2 and was huge on the PlayStation Portable.AdChoices广告Monster Hunter: World has a gargantuan amount of content as is, but Capcom promises to deliver free updates to extend the game’s longevity. The company has stated that future updates will add more monsters. We don’t know exactly what types of monsters we’re getting, but it’s reasonable to assume a mix of both old and new creatures. These will no doubt come with new armor and weapons to unlock. Capcom has a history of (over)charging for DLC, so it’s great to know future updates will be free.Personally speaking, I can’t stop playing Monster Hunter: World. I’ve sunk well over a 100 hours into the game and I haven’t even gotten to the end. There is just so much to do! I’ve always wanted to get into the series, so I’m happy Capcom made the necessary changes to make it palatable. I realize it’s only February, but I predict Monster Hunter: World will continue to dominate gaming discussions for the rest of the year. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
