The Witcher 3 Content To Hit Monster Hunter World Next Month
The Witcher 3 may be the last entry in the series to feature Geralt of Rivia as the protagonist, but the character is not ready to leave the spotlight anytime soon, as he will soon debut in Monster Hunter World through a special event.
Earlier today, Capcom confirmed that the Monster Hunter World - The Witcher 3 collaboration event announced last month will be made available in February alongside a free major update on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No additional detail has been provided at the time.

This special event is going to bring some changes to the typical Monster Hunter formula, as it will introduce additional role-playing games elements, according to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto.
The quest for this collaboration is really unique because it mixes Monster Hunter: World gameplay along with the RPG elements of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to create a really fresh experience we think is going to appeal to fans of both series. You’ll see that coming early in 2019. We couldn’t have done it, of course, without the close collaboration of CD Projekt Red. We’re still working with them right now on the content and I think you’re really going to enjoy it.
Monster Hunter World is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in all regions. The event will launch on PC on a yet to be confirmed date.
