While you were sleeping, one of the biggest MMOs around (Final Fantasy XIV) and one of the most popular survival hunting games in existence (Monster Hunter World) became one. Well….sort of. Some of the biggest monsters from Capcom’s hit title are visiting Square’s game for the next few weeks, and hunting them down can net you some big rewards.
The biggest visitor is Rathalos, the star of a new quest called The Great Hunt. You have two options to take him down depending on your confidence: Normal (an eight-player mission) or Extreme (just four players and additional obstacles). Rathalos is only challengable if you have reached Level 70 and already completed the “Stormblood” main scenario quest. Bit if you beat him, you’ll receive the following:
- Rathalos Armor Set – Equipment Inspired by Rathalos
- New Minions – Poogie and Palico
- New Mount – Ride Rathalos, the “King of the Skies,” throughout Hydaelyn
- New Furnishings – BBQ Spit
The same patch that introduces Monster Hunter to FFXIV also adds the next chapter in The Forbidden Land Eureka series: The Pagos Expedition. It’s an all-new area that yields great rewards and possible minions.
It’s all live in Final Fantasy XIV, available for Playstation 4, PC and Mac.
