Monster Hunter: World and The Witcher 3 crossover is making a much-welcomed return to the game later this month, with all the goodies you may have missed last time.


Following February’s most satisfying crossover event for two of the most iconic games currently available, Capcom has confirmed that another crossover is coming this month.

A Tweet from the Witcher’s Twitter page reads as follows:

The ancient Leshen returns in Monster Hunter: World on PC, PS4 and Xbox One! Once again, the 50 or higher level hunters will be able to take part in the multiplayer challenge, Contract: Woodland Spirit, and get items inspired by The Witcher 3!“.

This is exciting news for both players of Monster Hunter: World and fans of The Witcher series as this is another chance for players to get some of the amazing gear from The Witcher 3 that they may have missed out on last time.

The gear must be crafted using the resources that are awarded to players for completing the Woodland Spirit quest. As well as items from The Witcher 3, the quest also stars the game’s main character Geralt of Rivia.

The resources that are rewarded will allow players to craft Ciri’s armor from The Witcher 3 and other rewards also include:

  • Geralt’s Armor and Weapons
  • Gestures and Poses
  • Palico “Nekker” Skin
  • Guild Card Backgrounds

The items from The Witcher 3 are a great addition to Monster Hunter: World as The Witcher 3 is realized as a similar genre type in a growing roster of excellent RPG games for the current generation.

Developed by CD Projekt and published by CD Projekt RED, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an epic, open-world action RPG focused around slaying RPG archetypical beasts, not dissimilar to the gameplay style of Monster Hunter: World itself.

This second collaboration between Capcom and CD Projekt RED is also not the only crossover event that the game has seen.

There have been previous crossover events from various popular games such as Assassin’s Creed, Final Fantasy and even Street Fighter, although some crossovers such as the Street Fighter events for PlayStation 4 were platform exclusives.

Capcom has also stated today that due to feedback from fans of the game, the upcoming expansion Monster Hunter: World – Iceborne will be more difficult than expected and more of a challenge than the base game.

The decision comes as the game’s director Kaname Fujioka listened to the more dedicated fans who felt that the endgame of Monster Hunter: World wasn’t interesting enough and Iceborne has reportedly been tweaked as a direct response to this player feedback.

When Iceborne is released, the game is promising a more challenging game world for experienced Hunters and an easier time for new players to the game in the form of better gear and a new dynamic difficulty mechanic; Monster health will be scaled based upon the number of Hunters participating in the battle.

In an interview with Game Informer, the game’s Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto has stated that Iceborne will be the only expansion releasing for Monster Hunter: World, however free DLC, and events will continue to be released.

The crossover event will be taking place from 26th July 2019 to 29th August 2019 and Monster Hunter: World – Iceborne will be released on 6th September 2019.

    It is exciting news. So cool to see these ‘two worlds’ collide. I try to click on the images to see them enlarged but it seems like something is not working properly. Nothing happens when I do so. Anyway, thanks again for sharing. Looking forward to seeing this in action.

      Hi Ivan, thanks for commenting.

      Apologies for the images, the issue has now been fixed.

      It is great when games do crossover events and sadly it doesn’t happen often.

      Monster Hunter World seems to be quite open and adept at crossover events and it will be exciting to see what they come up with in the future.

      Thanks,
      Michael.

    AAAHHH! This is great! I love MH. I’m still getting into the Witcher 3 after a traumatic experience with RDR2, I’m afraid to get too invested into another character, but this will be great! I love it when crossovers happen and games blend fan bases 🙂 I know Blizz does it with their overwatch skins/WoW crossovers, but collaborations with two different studios are always so much better than internal marketing ploys. 🙂 I’m also excited to see that studios are moving back towards more difficult play – it gets boring if you never have consequences. Thanks for the update!

      Hi Hilary and thanks for commenting.

      It is great to see crossovers of any kind.

      I love movie crossovers such as Alien Vs. Predator and TV crossovers like the current DC TV shows.

      Game crossovers are rare, especially from different studios.

      This crossover is made especially great considering the rich quality of both of the games.

      I do hope you enjoy The Witcher and I am now very intrigued to hear about your RDR2 experience.

      If it relates to other players, the good news is that Rockstar Games have now implemented a lot of anti-griefing and anti-cheat measures, so I would recommend a return to the game.

      Thanks for the nice comments,
      Michael.
