Square Enix today announces all the information of what players can expect when its highly-anticipated collaboration with Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World arrives in FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood on 7th August. The upcoming crossover, first revealed during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), will test the mettle of players as they face off against the “King of the Skies,” Rathalos.

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.

A range of rewards will be available as part of the collaboration:

  • New Armor Set – design inspired by Rathalos

  • New Minions – Poogie and Palico

  • New Mount – Rathalos

  • New Furnishing – BBQ Spit
