If you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can head on over to the PlayStation Store right now and download the Monster Hunter: World beta ahead of its launch on Saturday the 9th December. Be warned, though: it's a little difficult to find. If you can't see it by searching for Monster Hunter, try going to games, then demos, and it should be at the top of the page.

The beta weighs in at a reasonably light 5.5GB, and as noted, you'll need to be subscribed to PlayStation Plus to get started. Once it's downloaded, you'll be good to go when the beta goes live this weekend.
