Although Capcom does not have any plans to release a Level Editor for Monster Hunter World, it appears that the game will be open to mods. The development team has just added an official Steam Mods Workshop section to the PC version, via which modders will be able to share their mods.
Our guess is that the game will allow model switches, similar to those we’ve seen in Final Fantasy XV and other titles. We also expect some Reshade mods to hit the Internet immediately, and we hope for some HD quality texture packs (as the current textures of Monster Hunter World as not as crisp as we’d hoped).
Again, nothing of this has been confirmed yet and we are simply speculating. And while Monster Hunter World will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, we’ve seen numerous mods for other games using it (like Just Cause 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight).
Monster Hunter World releases on August 9th on the PC!
