What’s New For Monster Hunter World This Week On PS4 And Xbox One

Capcom has launched the latest slate of weekly content in Monster Hunter World. PS4 and Xbox One players both have a new set of limited bounties and event quests to complete, although some of those on PS4 have gotten a head-start on a particularly notable quest.

In addition to the actual playable content, Capcom has released a new Monster Hunter World update. The patch notes are fairly simple, dealing primarily with multiplayer problems on both platforms and an issue involving Slashberries that emerged following another recent patch.

As announced previously, PS4 players with a Street Fighter V save on their system get early access to the quest Down the Dark, Muddy Path. It’s a simple Arena quest in which you simply hunt a Barroth, but the rewards are what make it notable–completing it enough times provides you with the necessary materials to craft the armor based on the look of Street Fighter character Ryu. This quest–and the Ryu gear, as well as armor based on Sakura–will be available to all PS4 and Xbox One players in the future.

There’s still plenty else to do, whether you’re on Xbox One or simply don’t have a Street Fighter V save. A new slate of Limited Bounties are now available, tasking you with hunting three Kulu-Ya-Kus, four Diablos, and five Tempered monsters, as well as the usual one for completing the other three. These are available from now until February 22 or 23, depending on your platform. Here are the rewards for each of those:

There are also new event quests to complete from now through February 22. One of these, Chew the Fat, is fairly basic and tasks you with hunting two Great Jagras. Gaze Upon the Dawn is more notable, both because it has a fairly substantial reward (15,120 Zenny) and because it involves the quest where you guide Zorah Magdaros, which is something you can’t otherwise have access to at all times. Finally, Deep Green Blues gives you 50 minutes to kill a whopping five monsters, although given the specific lineup, this actually proves to be fairly easy for high-end players. Here are the particulars:

Chew the Fat

  • Hunt two Great Jagras
  • Two stars

Finally, the next Arena Challenge is available through March 1. This time around it’s Challenge Quest 1: Intermediate. The reward isn’t much better than the previous one at 2160 Zenny, but you’ll have two weeks to try to hunt a Rathalos and Tzitzi-Ya-Ku as quickly as possible. Only select weapon categories are available–you’ll have to choose from the Sword & Shield, Hunting Horn, Charge Blade, Insect Glaive, or Light Bowgun.
