'Monster Hunter: World' (ALL) E3 Time Attack Tournament

by Rainier on June 1, 2018 @ 12:40 p.m. PDT

Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter who completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a living and breathing ecosystem full of predators ... and prey.

Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing terrain. Venture on quests alone or with up to three hunters in a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system which allows cross-region cooperative play between Japan and the west, uniting the player base for the first time ever.

Retaining the series’ skill based progression and robust crafting system, players gear up to venture on quests to seek and slay monsters, progressively improving their skills to become the ultimate hunter. Loot collected from fallen foes can be used to create new equipment and armor upgrades styled after the monsters they’ve slain, allowing hunters to survive the elements and defeat the tougher opponents that await them.

Monster Hunter: World delivers a seamless gameplay experience allowing players to move freely across map areas that comprise the living ecosystems and dynamically transition from day to night. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role in each quest as players strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to their advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present. Hunters must use their cunning and abilities to track and maneuver their targets throughout the intense, evolving battles.

This year, at E3 2018, Capcom are looking to celebrate the one year announcement anniversary with a fun team time attack tournament and prizes! Keep reading for all the details.


We’ll be hosting two separate instances of the Monster Hunter: World E3 Time Attack Tournament:

  • Tuesday, June 12th from 2:30pm to 5pm (Pacific Time)
  • Wednesday, June 13th from 2:30pm to 5pm (Pacific Time)


Registration will take place on-site at the Capcom booth #2223 on both June 12 and 13 between 12pm and 2pm (Pacific Time). The tournament will be open to all E3 2018 attendees. This is a doubles tournament, meaning you must sign up with a partner. If you don’t have a teammate, come by the Capcom booth during the sign up period to meet up with other likeminded hunters.

Entries will be limited to 6 teams (12 hunters) per day.


To keep things fun with a little extra competitive flare, we’ll be borrowing characters from a game series that knows the competitive ring all too well: Ryu and Sakura from Street Fighter V.

These special Challenge Quests are live right now on Monster Hunter: World so call a buddy and get to practicing the following quests:

  • The Awakened Satsui no Hado I
  • Empress in Full Bloom I

NOTE: we’ll be using specifically the I versions of those quests, not the II, or III.

Each day will feature one of the quests listed above; all teams participating that day will be taking on the same quest. There will be time allocated to controller configuration before the start of each quest. Each team will only have one chance at completing the quest.

After all teams have completed their quests, the team with the fastest completion time will emerge as the winner.


All tournament participants (12 each day) will receive a Nergigante statue; the same model as the one that came in the Monster Hunter: World Collector’s Edition!

We’ll also be raffling off some prizes during the event, so make sure to stick around and cheer for your favorite team.

The winners (2 per day) will walk home with a custom trophy made specifically for this occasion, and will be forever known as the Monster Hunter: World E3 2018 Time Attack Champions.

And for the folks at home, you can catch all of this action via our live streaming channels on Twitch and Facebook.

With flexible online multiplayer options and an accessible quest structure, players can tackle challenges alone or join up to three other hunters online for cooperative play. For the first time in the Monster Hunter series, players from Japan and the west can play together online, providing an expanded base of cooperative hunting companions. With the new online drop-in functionality, solo players can hail for assistance from the worldwide group during quests when their opponents are too daunting to take on single-handedly.

Monster Hunter: World is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release to follow in Fall 2018.
