Capcom today confirmed during the Sony PlayStation Showcase at Paris Games Week that a beta for Monster Hunter: World will be available exclusively for PlayStation Plus users starting December 9, 2017, and running for 3 days. In addition, special Horizon Zero Dawn content featuring Aloy’s bow and full armor set plus a Palico armor will be available for Monster Hunter: World exclusively on PS4. To see what the content looks like in-game and to see a brand new area of the game, the Rotten Vale, the new trailer can be enjoyed below:
To emphasize more on the exclusive beta coming to PS4, players from around the world will be able to experience three fearsome quests as they join up with other hunters online or take on the beasts alone in the exclusive beta for PlayStation Plus users. Running for three days, hunters participating in the beta can tackle the hungry Great Jagras, a scavenger capable of swallowing other monsters whole, or the fiery and territorial Anjanath, both of which roam the dense and complex eco-system within the Ancient Forest. For those feeling brave enough they can adventure to the desert land of the Wildspire Waste where the armored Barroth can be found lurking in the muddy waters, waiting to unleash its devastating charge attack.
Horizon Zero Dawn Meets Monster Hunter
Horizon Zero Dawn’s young machine hunter Aloy comes to life in Monster Hunter: World for PS4. With Aloy’s bow and full armor set as well as Palico armor that can make the player’s Palico look like a machine from Horizon Zero Dawn. The full armor set will make any player character look like Aloy from head to toe, including facial likeness. After completing the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration event quest, which is planned to be distributed to online players post launch, special materials can be obtained to forge collaboration equipment. By bringing the necessary materials to the in-game facility (Smithy), players will be able to forge the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration equipment. Details on the exact timing and availability of the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration quest will be revealed soon.
