Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is getting a crossover with the Monster Hunter movie. From December 4, you’ll be able to play as Milla Jovovich’s Lieutenant Artemis in a two-part Event Quest inspired by the upcoming Paul W.S. Anderson film.
Announced today, Jovovich lends her voice to the in-game Artemis, with the quests setting players against a Black Diablos and a Greater Rathalos in turn. Completing the quests will earn you layered armour, new titles, Guild card background and pose, and “special gear” – but you’ll only be able to take on the quests if you’ve reached Master Rank.
Before the event, players will be able to claim a free item pack as a log-on bonus to celebrate the film, starting from November 27. Take a look at an exclusive behind-the-scenes sizzle reel with Milla Jovovich below:
The Monster Hunter movie – out on December 4 in the UK, December 25 in the US, and January 1 in Australia – aims to bring communicate the feeling of Monster Hunter World in movie form. It tells the story of Artemis, a US soldier mysteriously transported to the world of Monster Hunter, where she meets Tony Jaa’s unnamed Hunter.
After some slightly un-Monster Hunter-y trailers, a recent Chinese trailer was praised for showing a much more familiar-looking movie, right down to its inclusion of Palicoes. It’s clearly been fertile ground fot Anderson, as there are already ideas for a sequel in the offing.
