CAPCOM posted details about the Monster Hunter: World and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaboration on its website after the free update officially launched on Thursday. The collaboration is divided into two parts, the first of which involves a story campaign with Geralt as a playable character, and the second of which involves a limited-time multiplayer event quest for HR50+ Hunters from February 15 to March 1.
CAPCOM also posted a video showing Geralt appearing in the world of Monster Hunter: World and fighting against a Leshen, a monster from The Witcher 3. Ciri also appears in the trailer video to tease her armor set and dual blades, which can be obtained as a reward for beating the limited-time "Contract: Woodland Spirit" event quest.
The Geralt α full armor set will be available for crafting after beating the story campaign, along with the Sword & Shield weapon Witcher's Silver Sword. The Nekker α full armor set and Cursed Staff α will be unlocked for your Palico companion.
Doug Cockle will return to voice Geralt in the collaboration.
The free title update will apply to the PS4 version 6.00 and the Xbox One version 22.214.171.124 of Monster Hunter: World. The game launched worldwide on January 26, 2018, and has shipped over 11 million copies worldwide.
