Monster Hunter: World‘s previously teased day-one update has finally been detailed in full, confirming the addition of a cute new pet, the introduction of extra language options, and more.
The details of the patch were tweeted out by Kogath, head of the Monster Hunter Wikia, who translated the information from Capcom’s Japanese patch notes. The patch, clocking in at a reasonable 815 MB, will unlock the game’s multiplayer servers, and add everyone’s favorite pet pig, Poogie, to the world of Asteria. Poogies can be tickled if players are so inclined, but they have a more useful application of helping hunters find treasure.
The update will also add a gallery in which players can rewatch previous cutscenes, as well as implement several new language options, listed below, for the various regional versions of the game.
- Asian version – Traditional Chinese/Korean
- North American version – Brazilian Portuguese
- European version – Brazilian Portuguese/Polish/Russian/Arabic
- Japan – No additional languages

In addition to the new features, the patch will address a number of bugs currently in the game. One thing apparently not coming in the update, however, is the option for blood in combat, as one fan learned from Kogath.
Prior to Monster Hunter: World‘s launch, fans can get an idea of the adventure that’s in store with the game’s recently leaked trophy list. There are 50 trophies in all, and while the tasks are fairly straightforward, they should definitely keep players busy for a while.
Monster Hunter: World is launches January 26th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release coming this fall.
