  • Monster Hunter: World is Out on PC Today and It’s Already Breaking Records on Steam

Now, our favorite behemoth hunting title "slays" Steam as well, breaking the record for the biggest new release of 2018 with over 240k concurrent players online.

With Monster Hunter World though the series has shaken off that tag, shipping over eight million copies since it released on console earlier this year. That number has already put Monster Hunter: World on the list of the biggest launches in Steam's history; it's eclipsed No Man's Sky and Civilization 6, and sits below GTA5 and Fallout 4's massive launch day numbers.


This much was revealed after Capcom added a Workshop tab to Monster Hunter World's Steam page just recently, confirming that the action-RPG will officially support mods for download through Valve's digital distribution service. Obviously, fans waiting for this version of the game have come out in droves today according to the charts on Steam. So, we will simply have to be patient for a short while to find out what the publisher and developer has in store for Steam Workshop mod support and all of the other ancillary features coming to MHW on PC. We knew it would be a hit but reaching nearly the amount of concurrent players Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has is out of this world.

For the longest time, Monster Hunter was written off as "big in Japan" but niche everywhere else.
