With the Monster Hunter: World release just over a month away, more information about the game is coming to light. Speaking to Famitsu this month, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto revealed that not only will Monster Hunter feature new monsters in post-launch updates, but they will be completely free as well.

When asked about the game’s post-launch content, which Tsujimoto revealed would be free during this past PlayStation Experience, he went a bit in-depth on the topic, stating that that the team is considering free updates for Monster Hunter: World. “What I can specifically say is that we plan to new monsters and such in hopes that users play for a long time,” he said. Tsujimoto went on to say that more information will be shared at a later date, so there’s no real world on what exactly will be added, but players always love free updates.

In case you missed it, the Monster Hunter: World beta is still going on, and has about a day left before ending. For those who have yet to play, make sure to check out some information on that below:

Additional Notes: Each quest can be done solo or with up to three other players online, and you’ll be able to choose from 14 different weapon types based on your preferred playstyle, which you can now change during quests at camp. You can even try out each of them before heading out on a quest by visiting the series’ all-new Training Room, included in the beta! Potions and other supplies will be provided on quests during the beta, but you’ll have to fetch your own food and drinks outside the game for those long gameplay sessions.

Monster Hunter: World is set to launch on January 26, 2018.
