Capcom has revealed that it's eyeing up free content updates for Monster Hunter: World following the game's release late next month. Talking to Japanese publication Famitsu -- as translated by Gematsu -- producer Ryozo Tsujimoto reveals the publisher's plans, at least partially.

"We are thinking about free, post-launch updates for Monster Hunter: World," Tsujimoto confirms. "What I can specifically say is that we plan to new monsters and such in hopes that users play for a long time. As for what kind of monsters will be added and so on, information will be shared later on, so please look forward to it."

New monsters potentially mean new quests and new equipment, so these updates could end up being quite meaty. In any case, it looks like you can expect a good amount of post-launch content from Capcom.

Are you a fan of free updates, or would you rather have big expansions? Or perhaps a bit of both? Sharpen your oversized weapon in the comments section below.
