Final Fantasy XIV Online & Monster Hunter: World Collaboration Lets You Defeat (And Ride!) Rathalos

As the days count down to the PC release of Monster Hunter: World, you can get your mouse-clicking fingers ready for hunting courtesy of Final Fantasy XIV Online.

Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World™ invades FINAL FANTASY® XIV: Stormblood™ on 7th August, Letting players face off against the “King of the Skies,” Rathalos.

Level 70 players who have smashed out the “Stormblood” main scenario quest will be able to take on this winged wonder in both Normal and Extreme versions of “The Great Hunt” Trial. The Normal version will see eight Warriors of Light team up to try and emerge victorious, while the Extreme version will challenge four players to defeat the monster, while featuring additional hazards that are familiar to those who have ventured within Monster Hunter: World.

There is a plethora of sweet new content to show your badassitude, including:

  • New Armor Set – design inspired by Rathalos

  • New Mount – Rathalos

  • New Minions – Poogie and Palico

  • New Furnishing – BBQ Spit

  • Did I mention you can freaking turn Rathalos into a mount?!?

This incredible tie-in is part of a content exchange program, with the Final Fantasy monster Behemoth making his way to the hunting grounds of Monster Hunter: World.

Better get your Stormblood quest done, and ready yourself for a new challenge – Rathalos is a drinker of tears, and a breaker of spirits.
