E3 2018 – Final Fantasy XIV x Monster Hunter World
At E3 today, Square Enix revealed an upcoming Monster Hunter collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV.
Square Enix offered a brief look at a forthcoming update. 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. We saw a Palico companion in Final Fantasy XIV’s world, as well as a Rathalos. It’s unclear what the Palico will do or is, but it looks like Rathalos will be a boss fight in the MMO.
Under the Moonlight launches sometime during Summer 2018. It looks to be a completely free update, although you may need to own the Stormblood expansion pack in order access it. Of course, Final Fantasy XIV is a subscription-based MMO, so you’ll need to have an active subscription if you hope to check out the new Monster Hunter content and whatever else might be added.
According to Square Enix, some requirements need to be met before you can experience the crossover event. You must purchase Final Fantasy XIV, create a character, level them up to 70, and complete the main quest “Stormblood.”
Check out the Teaser:
Final Fantasy XIV is available on PlayStation 4 and PC. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game has had over 6 six million total players. Monster Hunter: World has been a huge success since launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in January.
This crossover event could help fans of both games migrate to the other.
Final Fantasy XIV launched in 2010, but players and critics lamented its lack of content and poor gameplay. Square Enix remade the game and re-released it as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which received a much warmer reception. It has had two expansions since: Heavensward and Stormblood.
