Final Fantasy XIV Gets Invaded By Monster Hunter World’s Rathalos (VIDEO)
Last week, the Final Fantasy XIV/Monster Hunter World collaboration that was originally announced at E3 2018 received some exciting new details, with the reveal that legendary beast Behemoth would be invading Monster Hunter World early next month. Now, Square Enix has revealed the second part of the collaboration, with Monster Hunter World’s Rathalos invading Eorzea and giving the Warriors of Light a run for their money. Check out the exciting new trailer below:
The collaborative event is shaping up to be an exciting one, and Rathalos doesn’t look like it’ll go down without a fight. Those that have sufficiently progressed through the Stormblood expansion should recognize the battlefield as The Azim Steppe, though it is currently unknown whether the fight will be in the form of a trial or, more likely, a Fate that everyone in the area can take part in.
While players on the Capcom side of things can look forward to an exclusive ‘Drachen’ Dragoon armor set and Palico armor that makes their companion look like a Moogle, Final Fantasy XIV players can look forward to new armor sets, the likelihood of having a Palico as a minion, and having a smaller version of Rathalos as a new mount. A new drinking animation was also teased, though what exactly that will entail is still unknown. While there is still very little news to be had about the crossover event, fans can likely look forward to receiving more details before the event begins on August 7.
Final Fantasy XIV is now available for PC and PlayStation 4.
