Today Capcom made the beta client for Monster Hunter World available for pre-load on the European PlayStation Store.
The client weighs 5.47 gigabytes and can be download here, only if you are a European PlayStation Plus Member. The North American version isn’t available just yet, but it should come later today.
Being a pre-load, you won’t be able to play the game immediately, as the beta starts tomorrow, on December 9th at 9 AM PST, which translates to Noon EST, 5 PM GMT, 6 PM CET and 2 AM (on the 10th) Japan Time. it will end on December 12th at the same hour.
While solo play will be available, an online connection will be required to play at all times.
There will be three quests available, two in the Ancient Forest hunting a Great Jagras (easy) and an Anjanath (hard), and one in the Wildspire Waste hunting a Barroth (intermediate).
