PC players of Monster Hunter World will soon be able to bump up the textures to another level, as Capcom has announced that the action RPG will receive a high resolution texture pack alongside its next update on April 4.
The texture pack will arrive as a free DLC pack available to claim and download through Steam. Considering the pack itself will be over 40GB in size to download and Capcom recommends at least 8GB of video memory to even use it, this being an optional DLC pack should be good news to many gamers without beefy gaming rigs.

Beyond that, the 5.2 game update will also implement a TAA+FXAA anti-aliasing option in the Advanced Graphics Settings menu. Here's what else the update will bring:
- When selecting "Take All" at the rewards screen after completing a quest, a list of all items received will now be displayed.
- Added a new mouse control type that is less sensitive to unintentional movement when controlling the Focus Camera with the mouse.
- Added a "Friends Can Join" option to the Private Session Settings.
- Various bug fixes, including localization-related issues.
Monster Hunter: World is also slated to receive its first expansion, Iceborne, later this year across all platforms, expanding the main campaign while also adding new monsters, locales, and more. It will be coming sometime in autumn.
