During the Square Enix E3 2018 media briefing, the company announced that Monster Hunter: World was getting a crossover event with Final Fantasy XIV and vice versa. Final Fantasy XIV is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which came out in 2013 on PC. Since then, the title has received numerous updates and boasts a significant fan following. You'll soon be able to take on a Final Fantasy XIV "Behemoth" in Monster Hunter: World.
August 1, 2018: The update is now live and not only includes the Final Fantasy XIV crossover content, but also plenty of bug fixes.
The legendary Behemoth storms into the New World on August 1, 2018 at 8 PM EDT. The Behemoth seems to be the same size as the final boss in the game. It'll definitely be a challenge to slay.
Monster Hunter: World launched on Xbox One on January 26, 2018. A PC version is scheduled for next month. The Monster Hunter franchise started off on the PlayStation 2 in 2004, but then became a Nintendo exclusive for many years. Games like Monster Hunter Tri, Monster Hunter 4, and even Monster Hunter Generations were only available on systems like the Nintendo Wii.
The premise behind Monster Hunter: World might be simple, but it tells a rather complex story. Once every decade, monsters known Elder Dragons trek across the water to travel to the region known as the New World. This migration event is referred to as the Elder Crossing. To get to the bottom of this mysterious pattern, the Guild has formed the Research Commission, dispatching them in large groups to the New World. The Guild is the main governing body in the Monster Hunter universe. They work alongside the Elder Dragon Observation to monitor and research particular species of interest.
