Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Crosses Over With Monster Hunter Movie in New Event
Play as Milla Jovovich in the latest Monster Hunter Iceborne crossover.
Monster Hunter World along with its huge expansion, Iceborne, is Capcom’s biggest selling title ever. The game has received a multitude of free content over the years, including most recently the addition of the devastating Elder Dragon, Fatalis. While DLC for the game is now winding down, Capcom has confirmed one more piece of free content that ties in nicely with the upcoming Monster Hunter movie.
The crossover, which goes live on December 3, will allow players to play as the movie’s protagonist, Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and comes with two brand new quests, each with unique rewards. Within the game, Artemis will be voiced by Jovovich to “really immerse you in the movie atmosphere”.
The first Event Quest is titled “The New World” and “pits Artemis against a fierce Black Diablos in the Wildspire Waste.” The Quest will reward players with the materials to craft the Artemis α+ armour set from the Monster Hunter movie.
The second Quest is called “To Our World” and features a battle against everybody’s favourite monster, the Rathalos. Capcom refused to share any further details about the Quest but confirmed that once you beat it you’ll be able to craft the Artemis Layered Armor, from the movie.
Last month we were treated to the first official trailer for the Monster Hunter movie and it was met with a tepid reception, at best. While the movie showed off some of the monsters, which didn’t look too bad, the plot seemed terrible and included the military taking on the monsters.
Fans of the franchise certainly have a lot to get excited about at the moment. Alongside the upcoming movie, there are two new titles heading to the Nintendo Switch. Announced during a recent Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase were both Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
