In case you didn’t know, Capcom is crossing over two video game titles with the super successful Monster Hunter World, and these are Resident Evil, and Horizon Zero Dawn. In a press release, Capcom has announced the Monster Hunter World Resident Evil crossover release date, as well as the one for Horizon called The Frozen Wilds.
The Monster Hunter World Resident Evil release date is set for November 7 (yes, tomorrow), while the one for The Frozen Wilds, is set for November 21.
Raccoon City collaboration
Popular survival horror icons Leon, Claire and Tyrant pay a visit to Iceborne for the Raccoon City collaboration, which will be available from 4pm PT on November 7 in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. As part of this special collaboration, hunters can acquire materials upon completing the event quest (MR20 or above) to craft Leon α+ and Claire α+ layered armor sets plus three Raccoon City themed pendants to spruce up their favorite weapons. Additional rewards for completing the event quest include two new gestures, allowing hunters to shuffle like zombies or even zombie bite a nearby monster to deal damage. Raccoon City also takes over Your Room, with a variety of themed decorations available for hunters to deck out their pads in survival horror style, including the iconic typewriter and item box (which of course includes the ability to save game progress and store your items respectively). Thanks to last month’s title update, players can also show off their macabre abodes as friends can visit each other’s rooms.
The Raccoon City collaboration would not be complete without the iconic Tyrant. “The Handler’s Terrifying Tyrant” paid DLC costume transforms the normally spunky young woman into a trenchcoat-wearing, quest journal-wielding brute to join hunters on quests, prepare meals at camp, and even appear in cut-scenes.
Horizon Zero Dawn™: The Frozen Wilds Collaboration on PS4™
Aloy journeys to the frozen wilds of Hoarfrost Reach in an exclusive upcoming collaboration for PlayStation®4 players. The first round of an exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn™: The Frozen Wilds collaboration will become available starting November 21, giving players who are MR24 or above a chance to craft a Light Bowgun based on Aloy’s Stormslinger Prototype. The collaboration quest will reward players with special materials used to craft the Horizon Zero Dawn™: The Frozen Wilds equipment. Additionally, hunters will receive a Pendant designed as Aloy’s Focus that they can attach to their favorite weapon upon completing this special quest.
Lastly, Capcom has also announced that there will be December updates to Monster Hunter World as well, which includes a soon-to-be-revealed new monster! December will also mark the return of Monster Hunter’s seasonal fests that will offer themed takeovers of the hub area. For the first time, these fests will be held in the Astera and Seliana Gathering Hubs.
For those on PS4, The Frozen Wilds crossover event will be expanded upon in December with more free content featuring new event quests, themed gear, and more. Capcom has also shared that more updates are planned for the game in 2020 with more info to be shared at a later date.
Once the patch is out later for the Resident Evil crossover, we’ll let our readers know.
