While even the most dedicated Monster Hunter World players are likely still far off from fully completing the massive game, some may be ready for new monsters to hunt. Capcom still has yet to reveal concrete DLC plans for Monster Hunter World, but we may have more answers as soon as next week.
Capcom is hosting a special live broadcast for Monster Hunter World on March 14 at 8pm JST, which translates to about 3am PST. While details on the broadcast are scarce, speculation points to Capcom using the opportunity to reveal its DLC plans for the game.
It would make sense for Capcom to offer a clear outline for Monster Hunter World‘s future DLC, especially considering the game’s massive popularity. Since its launch in January, Monster Hunter World has shattered Capcom’s expectations, becoming the best-selling game in the company’s history, surpassing a record previously held by Resident Evil 5. If Capcom hopes to retain this large fanbase, it will need to keep the game updated with fresh content.
Of course, Capcom has offered plenty of content in the Monster Hunter World base game to keep fans plenty busy, as well as no shortage of limited-time events and special quests. Perhaps more of these limited-time events, like the ones that let players unlock Horizon: Zero Dawn armor and weapons, will be revealed during the broadcast next week.
The broadcast could also reveal the exact date fans can expect to see Deviljho added to the game. Previously, Capcom said that it was aiming to release Deviljho this spring, but some have speculated that the beast may make its debut a bit earlier, in a special event quest set to take place on March 9. If Deviljho doesn’t show up on March 9, fans should be sure to tune in to the March 14 broadcast to see if any more information on the creature is revealed.
While it seems like a DLC reveal is the most likely scenario for the Monster Hunter World broadcast next week, it’s possible Capcom will be announcing something else. Whatever the case may be, fans will find out more details on March 14 at 8pm JST.
Monster Hunter World is available now for PS4 and Xbox One with a PC release planned for later this year.
