Monster Hunter: World smashes the record for biggest Japanese launch on Steam ever


PC Gamer has the story.

Quote:
Monster Hunter: World is off to a roaring start on PC. Just hours after the game unlocked on Steam, it's crushed the record for the biggest launch of a Japanese game in Steam's history, which Dark Souls 3 set with 129,831 concurrent players in March 2016. Monster Hunter has nearly doubled that, with a peak of 239,779 players today according to Steamcharts, an amazing number for a game that launched on consoles seven months ago.

There was no preload option for Monster Hunter: World, so that concurrent peak may continue to grow throughout the day as more people download the game. 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.

Prior to MHW, the biggest day-one numbers for a new game this year came from Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which pulled in nearly 96,000 players. For comparison's sake, Final Fantasy 15, another big Japanese RPG, had a peak of only 29,729 Steam players on release.

It's very Japanese in it's delivery, which is good I suppose. I got a chance to play the demo on the Switch and it was fun. I'll pick this up later, I'm sure.

I was pretty close to pre-ordering but at the end I just couldn't see what the GAME was like. The gameplay videos didn't show well.

It just seemed like one JRPG boss fight after another and looked like it would get old to do that again, and again, and again.

Super Bunny Hop Review of MHW

It's a very Japanese grind-a-thon, now with slightly better usability (harvest shit while running), divorced from handheld hell AND on PC finally, but still a complex SEA of menus to do stuff.

If yer system is up to par (shakes fist @ my old i3) then you could get lost in it for a good chunk of time.

It is more of an action game than jrpg. No levels. It's gear based. Your "class" is whatever weapon you use. If you get bored of one "class" all you have to do is change weapons.

Yeah its an action RPG where you advance by crafting better armor from the monsters you kill. Its basically a giant open world boss fighting game. It is very fun if you can get over some of the weird Japanese design quirks and get to endgame.

I hope you have no job, no life and 60 hours a week to play this fucker. I couldn't get into it, to much going on, and the text is too small, even on a 65 in tv. And im pissed off because i broke my 9 month no new games streak.

I don't know why you think you'd need that much time to play? You can log in, do a hunt or two and log out no worries.

But overall I've been enjoying the hell out of this game.

For me its too complex to jump in for 30 mins and get back out. Can you even take in the game doing that?
