Firstly, you’ll need to own the game on PS4 or Xbox One to get involved in the free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crossover event. It will be coming to PC at a later date, the specifics for which have yet to be announced by Capcom.
Typical of Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World crossover events, the biggest part for players to get involved in will be a new original contract called "Trouble in The Ancient Forest", available after Hunter Rank 16. What is extra new this time around is the arrival of a crossover specific monster to slay -- the renowned tree-like Leshen from The Witcher 3, which can be found in the contract "The Woodland Spirit".
With its arrival, combined with the Geralt skin, Monster Hunter: World is looking like the perfect place for Geralt to set up camp for a while. Hopefully, hunters have been grinding hard as "The Woodland Spirit" will only be open to Hunter Rank 50 or above players. Completing this contract will reward players with Witcher themed armour sets to suit up with as their typical hunter. All of this will be available until midnight, March 1st. The Woodland Spirit contract will unlock after February 15th.
As if that was not enough, Capcom’s appreciation for The Witcher doesn’t stop there. Geralt’s voice actor, Doug Cockle, has even stepped in on the project to offer original voice lines for Geralt. In support of The Witcher, the event will also offer the series’ hallmark branching narrative.
Playing through everything the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crossover has to offer will unlock a generous array of things including armour sets, a Ciri skin for female hunters, new emotes and even Nekker armour for your Palico. To top it all off, Capcom is currently hosting their Appreciation Festival to celebrate a year of Monster Hunter: World, which ends on February 21st. So suit up, Hunter! It’s time to get back out there.
