PS4 and Xbox One first, adopted by PC
The free Witcher crossover for Monster Hunter: World has penciled in February 8, 2019 for its launch day. As is usually the case, the console variations are up first, whereas PC gamers want to stay somewhat extra affected person for his or her title replace. Geralt will present up within the PC model of World “at a later date.”
The screenshot potential alone is terrific — simply think about Geralt searching down a sure cheeky egg-stealing fowl wyvern — however what does the replace truly embrace? Whereas Capcom hasn’t detailed many specifics but, this trailer caps off with the grizzled adventurer getting into the New World by a portal.
As we heard from Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, “The hunt for this collaboration is basically distinctive as a result of it mixes Monster Hunter: World gameplay together with the RPG parts of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to create a extremely recent expertise we expect goes to attraction to followers of each sequence.”
Providing barely extra tangible clues concerning the team-up, CD Projekt RED famous that the Monster Hunter x Witcher replace “will span a sequence of Witcher-inspired quests,” with voice actor Doug Cockle reprising his function as anticipated. Out within the area, Geralt will “make the most of his signature preventing type, seamlessly mixing swordplay, fight magic, and an assortment of monster searching gear.”
My expectations is perhaps unrealistic with the meaty Iceborne enlargement in all probability consuming up Capcom’s time and power this yr, nevertheless it certain can be cool to see a creature from the Witcher bestiary in Monster Hunter: World much like the time Last Fantasy‘s Behemoth rained on everybody’s parade. (Sorry, SOS gamers.) Who’s probably the most appropriate candidate? The Griffin? By way of aesthetic, feasibility, and participant recognition, that is my go-to choose. I might higher scrounge up flash pods simply to be on the secure aspect.
