Monster Hunter World‘s much-anticipated special event featuring Geralt from The Witcher has landed on consoles (coming later for PC) and the new quest for it features a familiar foe from CD Projekt Red’s highly-revered title.
The new Contract for Rank 16 and above is titled ‘Trouble in the Ancient Forest’ and sees Geralt (voiced by regular series actor, Doug Cockle), complete with all his signature weaponry and skills, tracking down the fearsome Leshen, last seen in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Contract features a branching story too, in a nice little touch.
If that’s not enough of a challenge for any of you seasoned Monster Hunters out there, then you can play a limited time event (‘Woodland Spirit’ Level 50) where you face off against an even more powerful version of the Leshen. Oh, and there are some juicy rewards for completing both, including craftable versions of both Geralt and Ciri’s armor. My personal favorite reward is the Palico skin.
Monster Hunter World is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Witcher 3 update is free for everyone, but PC players will have to wait until a later date. At least they can console themselves with the fact they can hunt the Alien Queen thanks to some nifty modding.
