A major update is coming for Monster Hunter World next week

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

The Deviljho is in the details.

Next week will see the first major update for Monster Hunter World arrive, introducing a new monster and a host of features.

Arriving on March 22, the new creature to join World is Deviljho, a Brute Wyvern which first appeared in Monster Hunter 3. Another big new feature is the ability to edit your character’s appearance, though it looks to be a one-off option unless you want to splash out some cash.

Also on the way are some housekeeping changes including a bunch of weapon adjustments, loading time improvements and the ability to return to the gathering hall after finishing a quest.

The details were all revealed in a Japanese livestream this morning which you can check out below (fair warning, it’s all presented in Japanese).

That’s not the full extent of content coming to Monster Hunter World this year, however, with a spring festival event showcased and a planned crossover with Devil May Cry to follow on from the Horizon Zero Dawn and Street Fighter 5 updates we’ve already enjoyed.
