Monster Hunter: World, Capcom’s latest RPG adventure and the fifth instalment in the Monster Hunter main series, is due for PC on 9th August. The system requirements are out and MHW has successfully entered the list of demanding PC games of the decade.

Capcom USA’s Vice President, Mr William Yagi-Bacon explained why Monster Hunter: World demands a fair amount of CPU power on the PC port.

“To eliminate interstitial loading during active gameplay, MHW loads the entire level into memory. In addition to managing assets loaded into memory, it keeps track of monster interactions, health status, environment/object changes, manages LOD & object culling, calculates collision detection and physics simulation, and tons of other background telemetry stuff that you don’t see yet requires CPU cycle. This is in addition to supporting any GPU rendering tasks.”

“While the MT Framework engine has been around for ages, it does a good job in distributing CPU cycles and load-balancing tasks across all available cores and threads. The engine itself is optimized for x86 CPU instruction set, is highly scalable, and loosely speaking, is platform agnostic regardless of PC or console platform so as long as it conforms to the x86 instruction set.”

    • Dude have you even played ANY of the console versions?
      They all run like absolute garbage, barely any can keep a 30fps, let alone 60.

      The game is just poorly optimized for everything and it looks like fun but that just sucks.

  1. I want games to be able to take full advantage if any configuration that’s available. Why they haven’t been able to is beyond me… I have 64gb of ram and hoe come I’ve never been able to load a whole game/level up on/in that??

    RAMDisk is another story, but I want to be able leverage whatever I have…
