Monster Hunter World Update Introduces Assassin's Creed Crossover
The Animus is getting weird.
Monster Hunter World is welcoming another crossover from a fellow franchise, this time bringing in characters and costumes from the Assassin's Creed series. You can earn one of two signature looks straight out of the assassin's guild wardrobe, as long as you have the chops to take down some monsters first.
A new event quest SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce drops you into an arena against some fierce monsters: Odogoron and Deviljho together, followed by Lunastra. Taking down all three will grant you a Senu's Feather item, which Assassin's Creed fans will recognize as a reference to Bayek's eagle from Assassin's Creed Origins. You can trade two feathers for a layered armor that makes you appear as Bayek himself. An Assassin hood gives you a speed boost to running, climbing, and croaching, and deals extra damage if you attack from stealth.
Capcom released a trailer showing off the special duds, complete with a (sort of) leap of faith. This is an event quest, so you'll have a limited time to take part and earn your rewards.
Monster Hunter World has received lots of continued support, including an anniversary event coming this month. Another planned crossover will bring in Geralt, the famed monster hunter from The Witcher 3, into the game. Its first big expansion, Iceborne, is coming this fall. The user-friendly revisions paired with a lot of continued support helped earn it a spot among our favorite games of 2018.
