"Worlds will collide with the next big Monster Hunter: World collaboration – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!" Capcom boasted about their latest event. "Step into the shoes of Geralt of Rivia and leverage his expert monster hunting skills as you take on a unique quest line in Monster Hunter: World."
According to CD Projekt RED and Capcom, "The crossover content revolves around a new, original quest line available to all Monster Hunter: World players who reached Hunter Rank 16 or above. Starring legendary monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, once again voiced by Doug Cockle in the English version of the game, 'Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest' tasks the witcher with tracking down and dealing with a powerful force known as the Leshen. Defeating this mysterious creature will require the skills befitting a seasoned professional, and gamers will have at their disposal the White Wolf's arsenal and abilities, including his silver sword and combat magic. Players will also engage in dialogues with other characters, influencing how the story unfolds through choices they make — a hallmark of The Witcher series."
The team over at Capcom are no strangers to the world of crossovers for their RPG, including a recent one that even brought Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed into the title.

Hunt alone or in co-op with up to three other players, and use materials collected from fallen foes to craft new gear and take on even bigger, badder beasts!
