Monster Hunter World's New PC update will fix connection issues and add new content

On September 6th at 0:00 UTC, Monster Hunter: World will receive its first major update, addressing the game's remaining connection issues, addressing a long list of bugs and adding new content to the title. 

With this update, revision number 152771, a new monster called the Deviljho will be added to the game, alongside associated weapon and armour sets. This new creature will invade level 6 and 7 quests and during high ranking expeditions. 

The highlight of this update will be the fixes for Monster Hunter's connection issues, but PC players will also be glad to know that the huge performance penalties from using thunder elemental effects have also been addressed, enabling higher framerates in affected scenarios. 

Sadly, this patch does not address Monster Hunter: World's low-resolution texture bug on PC. This bug prevents PC gamers from accessing the game's highest resolution textures, giving some assets a blurry appearance.
