Monster Hunter: World is scheduled to launch tomorrow for PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X. As expected, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of the game come with visual enhancements and improved FPS. While there is nothing wrong with standard PS4/X1 versions of the game, you should definitely consider investing in Pro/X versions in case you own HDR capable 4K TVs.
There is not much to tinker around when it comes to standard PS4 version. PS4 Pro version, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Not only PS4 Pro version of Monster Hunter: World allows for HDR, it also allows players to choose from one of three available pre-sets. For your convenience, we have detailed these pre-sets below:
This pre-set allows players to experience the game on 60 (Locked) FPS at the cost of resolution and a minor downgrade in details.
Improved Visual Fidelity
This pre-set allows players to play Monster Hunter: World with improved AA, Dynamic Shadows, High-Res. Textures, and other visual enhancements at the cost of FPS and resolution.
The final pre-set available on PS4 Pro allows players to play the game on a higher resolution as compared to 1080p but at the cost of some minor details and FPS. It is important to note that we currently do not have any information regarding the increased resolution but we expect it to be somewhere near 1440p.
While it is completely upto a player on what or what not to choose, I would always go with increased FPS over resolution or visual enhancements. Coming to Xbox One X version of the game, it is obviously expected to perform and look better than the standard Xbox One version but we do not have a whole lot of details as of now. If we take PS4 Pro enhancements as a standard, we can expect Xbox One X version to receive similar treatment.
Lastly, we have the PC version which is expected to be superior to all console versions but it has sadly been pushed to Autumn 2018. According to Capcom, the development team is currently hard at work to provide the best possible experience for PC gamers.
Monster Hunter: World is all about scouring epic locales in search of behemoth monsters and killing them to acquire their parts for crafting and experimental purposes. With over 45 monsters to defeat, you can expect around 50-60 of gameplay time. The game features both offline/online game modes so that you can play the game solo or with your friends.
To kill these monsters, you have a wide arsenal of weapons to choose from. Monster Hunter: World features a total of 14 Weapon Types with each of them having its own set of moves, combos, and attack patterns. These weapons include the likes of Two-Handed Swords, Great Swords, Bows, and more.
