Many PC gamers are ecstatic to find out that they’ll be able to experience Capcom’s highly successful and popular title Monster Hunter: World this August. However, mod and crossplay support won’t be available at launch.

This seems like terrible news but according to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto when talking to PC Gamer stability is the main focus.

“I want to synch these up as much as possible, but as mentioned previously regarding title updates, the differences in versions between platforms may prevent them being completely the same time.”

“[Balance patches] will be a case-by-case situation. If we find bugs that are happening only on PC for example, or issues arising after a title update, then we would put patches out on each platform as soon as possible. If there was an issue common to all platforms, however, doing it piecemeal would be less preferable than fixing every version at the same time so that everyone has the same experience.”

This is the first Monster Hunter game to join the PC realm and it’s prudent to ensure that everything is working correctly before diving into more complicated features such as crossplay and mod support. PC ports have been notorious for having issues, the most infamous example being Batman Arkham Knight.

Monster Hunter: World is now available for Xbox One and PS4. It launches for PC this August 9th.
