Today, we’ve received an official confirmation from publisher Square Enix about what players can expect from the highly-anticipated collaboration with Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World and Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is slated to arrive on August 7, 2018. The soon-to-be-released crossover was first unveiled during the E3 2018. It was meant to test the mettle of players as they face a deadly threat – “King of the Skies,” Rathalos.
The brand new trailer (check above) features a Rathalos battle, a new mount, minions, and more.
There’s more, of course. Word is that “arriving as part of the Patch 4.36 update alongside the next installment of The Forbidden Land Eureka titled “The Pagos Expedition”, Level 70 players who have completed the “Stormblood” main scenario quest will be able to take on the mighty beast in both Normal and Extreme versions of “The Great Hunt” Trial. While the Normal version will see eight Warriors of Light team up to try and emerge victorious, the Extreme version will challenge four players to defeat the monster, while featuring certain additional mechanics in homage to Monster Hunter: World.”

Of course, this is certainly not the first time we’ve seen a Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World crossover and it most likely won’t be the last.
Are you guys looking forward to more slicing and dicing in this Monster Hunter: World trial?
