Here's when you can join the Monster Hunter World open beta

Preload starts now!

The Monster Hunter World open beta on PlayStation 4 starts this Friday, December 22.

The beta is available to all PS4 users, with preload beginning today, December 18. It’s the same client as last week’s PS Plus beta, so if you accessed that one, you won’t need to download the game again.

The open beta starts at  9am PST, 12pm ET, 6pm CEST, 5pm BST, or any time on this helpful list, so set your alarms now, hunters.

The beta will run until December 26, finishing at the same time as it started, 9AM PST.

Monster Hunter World launches on PS4 and Xbox One January 26, with the PC version yet to receive an official date.
