Monster Hunter: World Stealthily Adds Assassin’s Creed Origins Content

A new quest in Monster Hunter: World will have players unlock costumes based on Assassin's Creed: Origins protagonist Bayek upon completion.

Both Monster Hunter: World and the Assassin’s Creed franchise as a whole have a case of crossover fever, so it was inevitable that these two would cross at some point. The former game recently added a new Event Quest, and players have found that completing it will unlock some Assassin’s Creed Origins-inspired goodies.

The Event Quest is titled “SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce,” and will involve players attempting to slay an Odogaron, a Deviljho, and a Lunastra. These monsters will drop a Senu’s Feather, and four feathers will be the cost of crafting the Assassin’s Creed costumes. Monster Hunters can craft both Bayek’s armor and the “Assassin’s Hood,” based on Ezio from his sub-trilogy of Assassin’s Creed games.

Bayek’s armor is solely cosmetic and doesn’t change any stats—the Assassin’s Hood, on the other hand, will increase movement speed and stealth. You know, like an assassin. It’s functional as much as it is fashionable. It’s a bit odd that this doesn’t include anything based on the more recent Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but Bayek is still a popular-enough protagonist.

Speaking of crossover fever, For Honor recently held an Assassin’s Creed-themed event. On the Monster Hunter: World end, Geralt from The Witcher 3 will arrive in the online game. Going back further, there was the Final Fantasy XVAssassin’s Creed crossover, and heck, even a Metal Gear Solid 4 and Assassin’s Creed crossover ten years ago.

The event is currently playable in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Monster Hunter: World, and not on the PC version for some reason.
