Back in December, Capcom and CD Projekt Red announced that they would be collaborating on a special quest line for Monster Hunter World. During the event, players will be placed in the shoes of Geralt of Rivia, complete with his usual weapons and abilities. The Witcher-themed quest is now available, although it is limited to consoles for the time being.
The crossover is available to any Xbox One or PS4 player that has reached Hunter Rank 16 or higher. It all kicks off with the mission ‘Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest', and will see Geralt tracking down and dealing with Leshen. The quest line even has dialogue options and different story outcomes depending on your choices. As far as crossovers go, this one appears to be quite deep.
Trouble in the Ancient Forest is just the first contract that players can take on. ‘Contact: Woodland Spirit' will be dropping on the 15th of February for players at Hunter Rank 50 or above.
Players will be able to leverage Geralt's silver sword for monster slaying, in addition to his different sign powers.
Playing through these missions will earn you unique gear. You'll be able to craft Geralt's armour and weapon sets, unlock a unique skin for the Palico, new gestures, poses, guild card backgrounds and more. Playing the harder ‘Woodland Spirit' mission will get you the resources you need to craft Ciri's armour too.
The Monster Hunter World x The Witcher 3 special event is live on the PS4 and Xbox One right now. Unfortunately, we don't have an exact launch for PC players- all we know is that the content will be coming at a later date.
KitGuru Says: I'm really excited to get my hands on this, although I'm going to have to do some grinding on PC to be ready in time for the harder mission. Have any of you tried the Witcher contract mission in Monster Hunter yet?
