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. After you complete the assignment, the Geralt α full armor set will be available for crafting, as well as the Sword & Shieldweapon Witcher's Silver Sword for your Hunter. We will convey to you about the update as soon as possible.
During this crossover, all players who have reached Hunter Rank 16 or above will be able to take Geralt through the "Trouble in the Ancient Forest" contract. The Witcher 3 players will be familiar with the hard-hitting, magic using Leshen which dwells in forests.
Production for Milla Jovovich's Monster Hunter movie is well underway with Paul W.S. Anderson, and while we've had some sneak peeks in the past for characters and what the setting will look like, we didn't have a date for when the latest adaptation would hit theaters. The rewards are a rare 7 Witcher sword and shield, in addition to layered armour sets of Geralt and Siri for your hunter. Capcom promises "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". Additionally, players will be able to influence the story through the choices they make throughout the quest line.
We've put hundreds of hours into Monster Hunter World and this has been partly due to the great support the title has been given. The character is playable in the Contract: Woodland Spirit quest, which also comes with similar rewards upon completion. The content will release on PC at a later date.
It's unknown exactly what else the Witcher has brought to the game along with him.
