Description

Monster Hunter: World is an action adventure game developed by Capcom. It was released for consoles in January 2018, and for Windows in August 2018. The player plays as a Hunter, an adventurer that is tasked to kill or trap monsters. The story revolves around an expedition to a New World, a continent where monsters are unknows and mysteries are begging to be explored.

The core gameplay loop is about killing monsters. When you kill monsters, you can use parts of them to craft better gear - that allows you to kill even bigger monsters, etc. The world is hub-based, you have a base from which you go to the various places from the world, from lava-spitting mountains to desert canyons.

Recommendation

Monster Hunter: World is, as you have most likely guessed, about hunting monsters, and the game truly offers many varied encounters with them. You encounter small dinosaurs, big birds with puffy necks, giant T-Rexes and stone constructs the size of buildings. The weapon types are interesting and varied, with many different offered playstyles.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
