Monster Hunter World’s final beta is kicking off soon on PlayStation 4 ahead of the game’s full release on January 26, and avid players everywhere are preparing their consoles for the download. Considering the beta is happening so close to release, and that it’s the last chance for you to get a sneak peek, you're going to need to know when the Monster Hunter World beta ends.

While it’s only going to be around for 3 days, there’s a lot to do in the Monster Hunter World beta. Capcom has added a new quest to the beta, where you’ll be able to track down and hopefully kill the enormous Nergigante creature. The purpose of the beta is to test server load and will be using worldwide multiplayer matchmaking, so some hiccups should be expected.

By the time the Monster Hunter World beta ends, there will only be five days left until the game’s full release, so at least there’s not long to wait to play it again. We’ll be covering Monster Hunter World here at Shacknews, so be sure to check back for some handy guides and walkthroughs!
