'Monster Hunter: World' (ALL) Welcomes The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia - Trailer

Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter who completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a living and breathing ecosystem full of predators ... and prey.

Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing terrain. Venture on quests alone or with up to three hunters in a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system which allows cross-region cooperative play between Japan and the west, uniting the player base for the first time ever.

Retaining the series’ skill based progression and robust crafting system, players gear up to venture on quests to seek and slay monsters, progressively improving their skills to become the ultimate hunter. Loot collected from fallen foes can be used to create new equipment and armor upgrades styled after the monsters they’ve slain, allowing hunters to survive the elements and defeat the tougher opponents that await them.

Monster Hunter: World delivers a seamless gameplay experience allowing players to move freely across map areas that comprise the living ecosystems and dynamically transition from day to night. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role in each quest as players strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to their advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present. Hunters must use their cunning and abilities to track and maneuver their targets throughout the intense, evolving battles.


An otherworldly creature has arrived in the New World and we need a hunter with special abilities to help the Research Commission hunters solve the anomalies it has ushered in. Enter Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher.

As part of the Free Title Update (PS4 version 6.00 / Xbox One version 6.0.0.0), you’ll get to play as Geralt from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in a unique experience that brings out the best of both game series. We’ve even called upon the original voice actors for Geralt to play his part again in Monster Hunter: World!

The first part of this collaboration puts you in Geralt’s boots and gives you all-new mysteries to solve and gear to craft with the Special Assignment “Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest”. After you complete the assignment, the Geralt α full armor set will be available for crafting, as well as the Sword & Shieldweapon Witcher’s Silver Sword for your Hunter. And for your Palico, the Nekker α full armor set and Cursed Staff α will show up in the Smithy’s list.

Once you’ve cleared this Special Assignment and crafted your shiny new gear, start prepping for the second part of this collaboration: an even tougher challenge with even more rewards! The limited time (Feb 15th – Mar 1st) Event Quest “Contract: Woodland Spirit” will be set for HR50+ hunters, but this time it’ll be open to multiplayer, so get your squad ready and take on this ancient threat. Rewards include the Ciri α full armor set and a matching set of Dual Blades.

Good luck, hunters!

With flexible online multiplayer options and an accessible quest structure, players can tackle challenges alone or join up to three other hunters online for cooperative play. For the first time in the Monster Hunter series, players from Japan and the west can play together online, providing an expanded base of cooperative hunting companions. With the new online drop-in functionality, solo players can hail for assistance from the worldwide group during quests when their opponents are too daunting to take on single-handedly.

Monster Hunter: World is currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
