Earlier this month, Capcom released the first beta test for the upcoming Monster Hunter: World and it seems that fans were pleased with the preview, since another beta will kick off very soon. The second beta test will allow even more players to check out the upcoming game, since the PlayStation Plus subscription, that was previously required, is now being removed to allow all PS4 owners to try out the upcoming game. 

The second beta for Monster Hunter: World will kick off on December 22 at 12PM ET and will run for four days, ending at the same time on December 26. Capcom did not announce whether accessing the game’s online multiplayer mode would need a PS Plus subscription, but at least they've confirmed that the single player mode will be available to everyone. Players who have downloaded the client for the first beta test can re-use the same application this time, so hopefully you haven’t deleted the file yet. Although if you have deleted it, or if you are a new player, you can download the beta test client early starting on December 18. 

In terms of content, Capcom did not give specifics as to whether the upcoming beta test will include new content so we’ll have to wait for further announcement from the developer. Newcomers to the beta test can check out the details and content included during the previous beta here. Unfortunately, PC and Xbox One players are still not included this time, which is not a surprise since Capcom is still yet to announce the official release date of the game for the PC.

Monster Hunter: World will be officially released on January 26 for the PS4 and Xbox One.
