Capcom officially confirmed the PC release date for the collaboration event with CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The collab will land on Steam on 09 May 2019 and along with the event, the update will also add various bug fixes.
After two months of console exclusivity, the crossover event that introduces Geralt and some monsters from The Witcher 3 to Monster Hunter: World finally has a PC release date.
According to Capcom's announcement on Steam, Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3 collaboration will come to Steam on 09 May 2019. That's exactly three months after the launch on consoles, but it's better late than never, and monster hunters on PC probably get used to the delayed content by now.
As you may know, in this collab, the main protagonist of the Witcher series, Geralt of Rivia, makes an appearance in the New World. You can take part in a unique quest that combines RPG elements from The Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter: World gameplay.
During the event, you'll get to hunt one of the fiercest monsters from the Northern Kingdoms - The Leshen. The difficulty for the Event Quest called Contract: Woodland Spirit is similar to Death March difficulty in The Witcher 3.
You can complete the quest to earn materials to craft the Ciri full armour set and the Zireael dual blades, as well as earn delivery requests that allow you to get crafting materials for Geralt Layered Armour and Ciri Layered Armour.
Capcom mention that this particular quest won't be available on the event launch, instead, it will release on 17 May 2019.
The crossover event will also feature a Special Assignment, which will reward you with materials for Geralt full armour set and the Witcher's Silver Sword.
Furthermore, completing special objectives will earn you a bounty that, if completed, allow you to get materials and craft the Cursed Staff and Nekker full armour set for your Palico.
And last but not least, the update on PC will also introduce various bug fixes, that should address some annoying issues. Capcom will release the full patch notes once the crossover event officially launches on PC.
