Finally! Looking forward to getting addicted like millions of players on consoles.

Though the System Requirements are very demanding, specially since the Recommended specs are for only 1080p@30fps on High settings. Some settings can go a level further to Highest.

An Action and Co-Op Multiplayer game like this is better played at 60fps, but if even a GTX 1060 can only do 30fps, requiring a GTX 1070 for 1080p@60fps at High settings is a lot. Hopefully, there will be a good compromise between Medium and High settings to achieve 1080p@60fps on a GTX 1060.

There are many images of the settings and of the game running on PC on Capcom's Unity blog:

Monster Hunter: World's producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, told PC Gamer that:

"When the game launches the visuals will have parity with the console versions, but we’re considering releasing a free update after launch."

PC Gamer - Monster Hunter: World PC visuals 'will have parity' with console versions:

Which just exacerbates the System Requirements issue. Needing a GTX 1060 to do what a base PS4 - a console released in 2013 - does without any substantial visual upgrades is just a waste of power of the newer hardware.

Seems like an unoptimized game, which is weird since Capcom's latest games' PC versions are very optimized - like Resident Evil 7.

apparently this franchise is at risk despite being capcoms best selling game ever. that's some broken sales estimates on their end if that's the case.
