Capcom’s and CD Projekt RED’s collab of Monster Hunter: World and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is officially live on all platforms thanks to the latest update for the game.
The crossover event was announced back in 2018, but the long wait has finally come to an end. Witcher fans will be treated to a new storyline quest that involves playing the monster-slayer himself, Geralt; as well as some new snazzy gear to unlock. Oh, and one more cool thing, the voice actor for Geralt from Wild Hunt has returned to reprise his role.
Check out the new trailer and official description of the Witcher Event, down below:
As part of the Free Title Update (PS4 version 6.00 / Xbox One version 220.127.116.11), you’ll get to play as Geralt from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in a unique experience that brings out the best of both game series. We’ve even called upon the original voice actors for Geralt to play his part again in Monster Hunter: World!
The first part of this collaboration puts you in Geralt’s boots and gives you all-new mysteries to solve and gear to craft with the Special Assignment “Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest”. After you complete the assignment, the Geralt α full armor set will be available for crafting, as well as the Sword & Shield weapon Witcher’s Silver Sword for your Hunter. And for your Palico, the Nekker α full armor set and Cursed Staff α will show up in the Smithy’s list.
Once you’ve cleared this Special Assignment and crafted your shiny new gear, start prepping for the second part of this collaboration: an even tougher challenge with even more rewards! The limited time (Feb 15th – Mar 1st) Event Quest “Contract: Woodland Spirit” will be set for HR50+ hunters, but this time it’ll be open to multiplayer, so get your squad ready and take on this ancient threat. Rewards include the Ciri α full armor set and a matching set of Dual Blades. Good luck, hunters!
