While certainly an impressive game both in terms of mechanics and scale, the reception for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World has been less than stellar. Monster Hunter: World’s PC port currently holds a rating of 6/10 on Steam, with only 48% players giving it a thumbs up. Criticism is aimed at severe frame rate issues, CPU spikes, and constant losses of connection. Yikes!
Today, Capcom shared an official comment on the state of the PC port and stated that they are looking into the connection errors that are currently being experienced by players who try to depart into a quest multiple times.
“We have been receiving numerous reports that players are experiencing connection errors after every several times they depart on quests. We are currently investigating the cause of this and are working with Valve to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
We will keep you informed of further developments in this matter. We thank you for your patience and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.”
Despite the mixed reception and the glaring issues, Monster Hunter: World is on its way to become the best selling Japanese game on Steam.
