The Monster Hunter Now closed beta sign-ups are now live, giving players the chance to delve into the upcoming monster-slaying game before its official release date.

However, instead of capturing and collecting monsters, Hunters will be tasked with tracking down the game’s toothy terrors in the real world and fighting them solo or with other players.
