In this Closed Beta Test, in order to adjust the game balance for the official service launch, you have an option to purchase "Gems” through the Google Play Store, which are necessary for exchanging with in-game items that help the game progress.
Users who purchase Gems during this period will be able to receive an equivalent amount of bonus Gems when an official release of Monster Hunter Now occurs in your country of residence, calculated by using the most advantageous rate available at such time. For the calculation method of the bonus gems, please refer to the "Calculation Method for bonus Gems" For the application method to receive the bonus Gems, please refer to the "Application Method for Allocation." For detailed information on conditions for receiving the bonus Gems and more, please refer to the "Precautions Regarding Monster Hunter Now Second Closed Beta Test”.
Calculation Method for bonus Gems
The rate will be calculated based on the lowest unit price per 1 Gem (rounded down to the second decimal place) among the Gem packs (Note 1) that will be normally available for purchase through the Google Play Store on the official release date of Monster Hunter Now in your country of residence.
<Calculation Method Example>
Gem packs sold on the official release date of Monster Hunter Now in your country of residence:
15,000 Gem Pack (limited to 1 per person): 14,000 (price per Gem, 0.93 yen)
150 Gem Pack 280 yen (price per Gem, 1.86 yen)
1,400 Gem Pack 2,100 yen （price per Gem, 1.5 yen)
10,000 Gem Pack 14,000 yen (price per Gem, 1.4 yen)
Amount of Gems purchased through Google Play Store during the Closed Beta Test period: 50,000 yen
In this case, the bonus Gems will be
50,000 yen / 0.93 yen rate = 53,764 bonus Gems (rounded up to the nearest whole number)
The total is 53,764 bonus Gems. (Note 2)

Please note that packs that include other items are not included in the term "Gem Packs." Also, please be aware that the name "Gem Packs" may be subject to change upon official release.
