Monster Hunter World is due for launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in just a few weeks - on 26th January - but there's still time for one more PS4 beta.

(Sorry Xbox One owners, no beta for you.)

PS4 people, you'll be able to sample the delights of fighting Worlds beastie Nergigante from 18th January until the 22nd.

Previous beta missions where you could match up against Jagras, Anjanath and Barroth will also be available.

That's a lot of monster names, but here's one more: Deviljho. Monster Hunter World owners on either platform will be able to meet him via a free post-launch DLC, due later this spring.

Earlier this week, Capcom revealed the game's PC version would not arrive until this autumn.
