Another familiar face invading Monster Hunter World

Capcom and CD PROJEKT RED announced a special Monster Hunter World X The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crossover event where Geralt is now part of Capcom’s 2018 juggernaut.

The crossover content includes a new quest for players who are Hunter Rank 16 or up and features Geralt of Rivia. Dubbed Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest, the new quest has Geralt hunting a mysterious and powerful creature referred to as the Leshen.

Completing this unique quest will reward players with unique Witcher-themed special items, resources in order to allow players to craft Geralt’s unique weapon and armor set. The rewards also include esthetics bonuses such as new gestures, titles, pose, and guild card background.

As the White Wolf, players will also be able to interact with other Monster Hunter World characters and influence the story’s path depending on the choices they make during conversational events.

And starting on February 15th, 1:00 AM CET, players ranked 50 and up will be able to put their skills to the test with an extremely challenging multiplayer event which will pit gamers against a much more stronger form of Leshen. Dubbed Contract: Woodland Spirit, this special event will only be available for a limited time as it will end on March 1st, 00:59 AM CET. Rewards for completing this high level challenge will reward players with the necessary resources to craft Ciri’s armor and weapon set.
