The highly-anticipated collaboration between Square Enix and Capcom arrives in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood August 7, 2018. First revealed during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the upcoming crossover uniting two beloved and wildly successful games will have Warriors of Light challenge the “King of the Skies,” Rathalos, from Monster Hunter: World.
The crossover arrives as part of the Patch 4.36 update, alongside the next installment of The Forbidden Land Eureka, titled The Pagos Expedition. Level 70 players in FINAL FANTASY XIV: Online who have completed the “Stormblood” main scenario quest may take on the mighty Rathalos in both Normal and Extreme versions of “The Great Hunt” Trial. While the Normal version will have eight players team up to face the legendary beast, the Extreme version will challenge four players to defeat the monster, with numerous unique mechanics included as a homage to Monster Hunter: World and its gameplay.
Special rewards will be available to those who play through the collaboration content, including:
New Armor Set – Inspired by Rathalos
New Minions – Poogie and Palico
New Mount – Rathalos
New Furnishing – BBQ Spit
