The latest entry in Capcom’s action RPG series, Monster Hunter: World, is now available for Windows PC via Steam.  The game released earlier this year on consoles and Capcom says it's since become Capcom’s best-selling game ever with than eight million units shipped worldwide.

In World, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems.  The game can be played single-player or with as many as three others via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, which is a series first.

Players of Monster Hunter: World follow the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing.  As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon.  As hunters set out on their quests, the Commission’s sights are set on Zorah Magdaros, a colossal elder dragon that rises from the earth like a volcano.
