Monster Hunter World reveals hefty PC Requirements

Monster Hunter World reveals hefty PC Requirements. Not to worry, you'll have tons of graphics options

The long wait for Monster Hunter: World on PC ends on August 9th as CAPCOM’s famed RPG series will finally land on the platform it deserves (sorry console lovers). Don’t get too excited, yet, as Monster Hunter: World comes with a hefty set of requirements for PC, so sit down and take notes.

Monster Hunter: World is the fifth installment in the main Monster Hunter series which follows the story into the New World, a land of untamed monsters and new areas for developments in research. As part of the Fifth Fleet, you’re there to hunt monsters.

Capcom USA’s Vice President, William Yagi-Bacon, discussed why Monster Hunter: World has these requirements – source Spiel Times

“To eliminate interstitial loading during active gameplay, MHW loads the entire level into memory. In addition to managing assets loaded into memory, it keeps track of monster interactions, health status, environment/object changes, manages LOD & object culling, calculates collision detection and physics simulation, and tons of other background telemetry stuff that you don’t see yet requires CPU cycle. This is in addition to supporting any GPU rendering tasks.”

“While the MT Framework engine has been around for ages, it does a good job in distributing CPU cycles and load-balancing tasks across all available cores and threads. The engine itself is optimized for x86 CPU instruction set, is highly scalable, and loosely speaking, is platform agnostic regardless of PC or console platform so as long as it conforms to the x86 instruction set.”
