Monster Hunter World launched back in January to mostly positive reviews and huge sales, and now Capcom is hoping to drive its commercial success further with a decent price drop. The action role-playing game is now available for $40 in the United States. That price is only for a “limited time,” Capcom said, though the company did not specify the duration of the offer.
A $20 discount on a game released five months ago may not sound all that great, but if you’ve been eying the game but didn’t want to pay full price, this looks like one of the better offers around. The price drop applies to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions.
