Bored of the influx of sticker sets and gestures? Want more from Monster Hunter: World? Well, Geralt of Rivia is now here to show you how proper monster hunting should happen!
You would have heard of the news that Capcom and CD Project Red were due to team up to deliver the ultimate monster hunter to Monster Hunter: World, with the iconic Geralt of Rivia arriving in game. Well, that time has come with the latest free update for Monster Hunter: World on Xbox One and PS4.
Taking on a monster hunt of epic proportions should only be undertaken by the most skilled hunters, and that is where The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s Geralt of Rivia comes in, as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt-themed content makes its way into Monster Hunter: World.
This crossover content revolves around a brand new, original quest line that is available to all Monster Hunter: World players who have reached Hunter Rank 16 or above. Starring the legendary monster slayer Geralt of Rivia – once again voiced by Doug Cockle – ‘Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest’ tasks the witcher with tracking down and dealing with a powerful force – the Leshen.
Defeating this mysterious creature will require the skills befitting a seasoned professional, but thankfully gamers will have at their disposal the White Wolf’s arsenal and abilities, including his silver sword and combat magic. You will also get the chance the engage in dialogues with other characters, influencing how the story unfolds through choices you make.
But that’s not all and come February 15th the most adept monster hunters – those hitting Hunter Rank 50 or above – will additionally be able to put their skills to the test in an extremely challenging multiplayer event, which will pit them against a much deadlier form of the Leshen. ‘Contract: Woodland Spirit’ will only be available for a limited time, until March 1st, so you’ll have to be quick.
Completing these will be well worth your time too. ‘Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest’ will earn players unique, Witcher-themed special items, resources for crafting Geralt’s armor and weapon set, a unique skin and weapon for the player’s Palico companion, as well as new gestures, titles, pose, and guild card background. Meanwhile, those able to take down ‘Contract: Woodland Spirit’ will furthermore reward players with resources they’ll need to craft the armor and weapon set of Ciri – another iconic character from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
This Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaboration is hitting home right now in the form of a free title update for Monster Hunter: World. It is available for download on Xbox One and PS4 with it dropping on PC later.
