Monster Hunter World Ultra-Wide Mod In The Works; New Video Shared
Monster Hunter World is finally available on PC, but it sadly lacks some features that PC players expect, such as ultra-wide support. While Capcom has yet to confirm an official future implementation, it seems like a modder is working on it.
A few hours ago, YouTube user FluffyQuack shared a work-in-progress video for a Monster Hunter World 21:9 aspect ratio mod. While things seem fine at a first glance, the mod still requires work, as it breaks water rendering, Volume Rendering Quality and more.
A little modding dibble dabble to get 21:9 working. Though I should say “working” in quotes. Current implementation breaks water rendering, breaks T-AA, breaks Volume Rendering Quality, and might randomly break all graphics when loading a new level. And in addition to that, it’s really fiddly to set up. But! I think this should be possible to implement mostly bugfree. The trick should be to make the game initialize rendering resolution to this rather than changing it while the game is running.

Capcom’s first full-fledged Monster Hunter on the latest generation of consoles (with PC to follow later this year) is among one of the strongest sequels to any RPG I’ve ever played. Nearly every quality of life improvement works out in World’s favor and makes the experience more immersive and accessible, rather than trying to dumb it down for a newer audience (I certainly won’t miss trying to knock out a Fatalis with an orange sharpness hammer just because I was an idiot that didn’t bring enough Whetstones). We’re only just in the first month of 2018 and already I can claim that Monster Hunter World might very well be my own personal Game of the Year.
Monster Hunter World is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
