The Witcher 3 Geralt Coming To Monster Hunter World Today
Are you ready for The Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter World collaboration? Capcom and CD Projekt Red are bringing Geralt of Rivia into one of the best games of 2018.
The upcoming free Monster Hunter: World update will let players hunt monsters as Geralt in a series of brand new quests. It’s unclear if players will be able to craft gear based on The Witcher series like the Horizon Zero Dawn and Devil May Cry collaborations did.
The update is scheduled to go live at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET (12 AM GMT on February 7). Capcom hasn’t shared many details yet on what the new quests will entail, but the publisher says they’ll have “a unique flavor, blending the RPG mechanics of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with Monster Hunter World’s game systems.”
According to Capcom, the Witcher collaboration event was developed closely with CD Projekt Red, the studio behind the Witcher series and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. Geralt’s original voice actor was also brought in to provide new voice over work for the collaboration.
The arrival of Geralt in Monster Hunter: World offers players brand new quests and opportunities to play as The Witcher.
Unfortunately, Capcom did not reveal the quests or what they entail. The official Monster Hunter World event quests schedule has not updated, but will once the free update rolls out on February 7.
Monster Hunter World has been a huge critical and commercial success for Capcom since it launched last January. The publisher recently revealed the title has sold more than 11 million copies world. Its positive critical reception also helped Capcom claim the honor of being Metacritic’s top publisher of 2018.
Capcom still has a lot more new content planned for Monster Hunter World. This fall, the publisher will release Iceborne, a major paid expansion that will introduce new monsters to hunt, locales to explore, gear to craft, and other content.
Monster Hunter: World is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
