Not only is Monster Hunter: World critically acclaimed, with a score of 90 on metacritic.com, but it is also wildly popular. As a commercial success, Monster Hunter: World’s release earlier this year led to a record breaking financial year for Capcom. Having sold three million copies in its first three days on Xbox One and PS4 and more than seven million in total, Monster Hunter: World is Capcom’s best selling game. Capcom have also released a steady amount of post-launch content, such as new monsters and crossover DLC, like the Devil May Cry costume and weapon pack.

A young bloke living in Sydney who loves to play some games from time to time. Currently studying Media and Communications at Sydney Uni and working as a bartender, I like to play games in my spare time to wind down from a hard day. I play both Xbox and Playstation with some PC gaming occasionally thrown in the mix. Beyond games I'm really into Aussie Rock music, playing guitar and watching footy.
