Monster Hunter World fans are counting down to the start of the final PS4 beta.The latest Monster Hunter World beta has a January 19 release date and runs until January 22. You can download the beta now ahead of its 2am UK time.The third beta contains new content, as players get to battle the game’s “terrifying and challenging flagship monster Nergigante”.

That’s on top of previous missions such as ‘Great Devourer, Great Jagras’, ‘Wildspire Rampage’ and ‘The Ancient Forest Menace’.

As the names suggest, these missions take place in the Ancient Forest and the Wildspire Waste.

Things are looking good for Capcom ahead of the release date, as Monster Hunter World gets a near-perfect review score in Famitsu (via Resetera).

The Japanese magazine rewards the game an impressive 39/40 review score.

The only bad news is that the Monster Hunter World beta will only be available on PS4 and not Xbox One.Express Online spoke to Monster Hunter World producer Ryozo Tsujimoto to see if there was any chance of an Xbox One beta.Unfortunately, however, it’s not good news for Xbox One owners.

Asked if there were plans for an Xbox One beta, Tsujimoto replied: “No, we’re focusing on PS4 right now.”

Tsujimoto also confirmed that PS4 Pro and Xbox One X patches would be available at launch.

“Some data is a day one patch that you can download,” Tsujimoto explained. “But once you’ve got that on the first day of release, you’ll be able to enjoy enhanced graphics and performance modes for Playstation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.”

Xbox One X and PS4 Pro users will be able to play the optimised version of Monster Hunter World on day one.

Fans will be able to choose from different modes that enhance the performance, resolution or graphics.

As an added bonus, Sony has also revealed a Monster Hunter World-themed PS4 Pro console bundle, complete with a custom controller and copy of the game.
