Monster Hunter World won’t be moddable at launch

Capcom has confirmed Monster Hunter: World won’t launch with mod support

When asked about mod support, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told PCGamer: "We don’t have anything to announce at this time." The PC release will also not support cross-faction multiplayer on launch.

The producer likewise wouldn’t confirm if the PC edition of Monster Hunter World would receive new content at the same rate as other platforms, but expressed that the studio will attempt to match new releases as much as possible.

"I want to synch these up as much as possible, but as mentioned previously regarding title updates, the differences in versions between platforms may prevent them being completely the same time,” continued Tsujimoto.

"[Balance patches] will be a case-by-case situation. If we find bugs that are happening only on PC for example, or issues arising after a title update, then we would put patches out on each platform as soon as possible. If there was an issue common to all platforms, however, doing it piecemeal would be less preferable than fixing every version at the same time so that everyone has the same experience."

Monster Hunter World releases on PC on August 9th.
