Monster Hunter World, Final Fantasy Collaboration Coming Next Month

Monster Hunter World to debut on PC on August 9

Monster Hunter World to debut on PC on August 9

The Behemoth from Final Fantasy XIV will be added to Monster Hunter: World as a huntable monster via an update on August 1 at 5:00 p.m. PT / 8:00 p.m. ET, Capcom announced.

In a report, analysts for BoAML say "although cumulative sales volume is growing steadily, we get the impression the popularity of Monster Hunter is dying down six months after its release", citing sluggish sales in the last few weeks in particular. As for the mighty Behemoth itself, you can see what you'll be up against in the update trailer below. Cactuars will also make an appearance, acting as environmental traps that can harm any enemies that come near it with sharp objects. It's actually rather adorable.

Finally, you'll be able to check out the new Drachen armor, along with the Gae Bolg Insect Glaive and the Dragon Soul Kinsect, making you resemble that much closer to a Dragoon if you prefer.


Watch a new trailer below. In this entry, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. Will you guys be picking up Monster Hunter on PC?

For a breakdown of what you're seeing, Arekkz goes over all the information on the event known at present.
