Take a tour of the Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaboration.
The long awaited ‘collab’ between Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World and CD Project Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available as a free update on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
The DLC adds a range of Witcher-themed content, including a new quest line for players above Hunter Rank 16.
In Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest, Geralt of Rivia must chase down a powerful creature called the Leshen. The quest incorporates aspects of The Witcher 3‘s choice-based gameplay with a fully voiced Geralt, who is once again performed by Doug Cockle.
Completing the quest will reward players with Witcher-themed items, resources for crafting Geralt’s iconic armour and weapon set, a Palico skin and weapon, plus new gestures, titles, and guild card background.
Between February 15 and March 1, players Hunter Rank 50 or above can also join a new multiplayer event against an even deadlier version of the Leshen. Completion rewards include a Ciri weapon and armour set.
Here’s a trailer of the delights in store.
The Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt update is also planned for release on PC at a later date.
In other Monster Hunter: World news, Capcom has announced that the game has sold almost 12 million copies world-wide, making it the most popular game in the series, and the best selling Capcom game of all time.

We have a favour to ask
