As of May 2016, western users can also get in on the PC hunting action via downloading an official English patch to the game created by Team HD, a group comprised of dedicated hunting fans set out to translate the game beyond the simple Google Translate format of Chinese to English.

Monster Hunter Online is a free-to-play Chinese MMO developed as a project between Capcom and Tencent. MHO has had several updates and expansions, all without a region lock, enabling hunters around the world to partake in the Windows PC exclusive.
