Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIES) has announced that Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World on PS4 will be provided as a free game for PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) subscribers. Do take note that the game will only be distributed at no charge for 5 weeks, from 18 March to 21 April 2020.
This is most likely to help gamers to bide their time during the current social distancing order that has been adopted by various countries across the world to combat the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. That said, this would be the best opportunity for newcomers to actually try out Capcom’s highly acclaimed Monster Hunter series for themselves and with a group of friends.
