Monster Hunter World x Final Fantasy XIV Crossover Announced

Monster Hunter World x Final Fantasy XIV Crossover Announced

At 11am PT/1pm CT/2pm ET on June 12, 2018, we will hear more about the collaboration during a live stream with Naoki Yoshida, Director and Producer of Final Fantasy XIV, and Ryozo Tsujimoto, Producer of Monster Hunter: World. Patch 4.3 is called Under the Moonlight, and while we don't yet know all that it will add, one headlining aspect is Monster Hunter World-themed content. The Final Fantasy XIV update, titled Under the Moonlight, will bring with it brand new quests as a new update to 2017's Stormblood expansion. There were not a lot of details in the trailer, but there was a release date for the new content, which is scheduled for Summer 2018. It is a safe bet that this monster will function as a boss that players can face in order to earn special items or gear that will be part of the event.

According to the crossover's official webpage, players of Final Fantasy XIV will get to take on "an iconic monster from the Monster Hunter series".
