Paul W.S. Anderson’s Monster Hunter movie is, somewhat unbelievably, out next week, and to celebrate its whatever-the-opposite-of highly-anticipated-is arrival, Capcom is shoving its presence into Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, with a special crossover event.
From 4pm PST next Thursday, 3rd December (that’s midnight on 4th December in the UK), owners of Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion can access a special two-part single-player side story that casts players as Milla Jovovich’s Monster Hunter movie character, Artemis. Completing with Milla Jovovich’s likeness and everything.
Part one of the new side story, The New World, pits Artemis against a Black Diablos in the Wildspire Waste, granting the materials needed to craft the Artemis α+ armour set – replete with a broad range of skills, including Earplugs, Health Boost, Stun Resistance, Great Luck, and Hasten Recovery.
