New screenshots are now out for Monster Hunter World, the new entry in the series launching in around one month on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and on a yet to be confirmed date on PC.

The new screenshots, which can be found below, focus on some of the game’s non-playable characters, quests such as Bounties, the Guild Card, which includes important stats and can be fully customized and more.

Later this week, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to take part in the Monster Hunter World open beta, running from December 22nd until December 26th. The open beta’s content is the same of the PlayStation Plus exclusive beta.

Quests: The beta features 3 quests across 2 environments from the game. In the Ancient Forest, you can hunt a fierce yet beginner-friendly Great Jagras or as a more experienced player confront the mighty threat of an Anjanath. In the Wildspire Waste, a massive, dry expanse with swamplands, you can face off against the intermediate level mud-slinging Barroth.

Rewards: In addition to an unquantifiable amount of fun, complete each quest and you’ll get some useful bonus items in the full game! Just make sure you use the same Sony Entertainment Network account for both the beta and the full game.

Additional Notes: Each quest can be done solo or with up to three other players online, and you’ll be able to choose from 14 different weapon types based on your preferred playstyle, which you can now change during quests at camp. You can even try out each of them before heading out on a quest by visiting the series’ all-new Training Room, included in the beta! Potions and other supplies will be provided on quests during the beta, but you’ll have to fetch your own food and drinks outside the game for those long gameplay sessions.

Monster Hunter World launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26th. The PC version will launch on a yet to be confirmed date.
