Monster Hunter World players on PS4 have already had an opportunity to craft an exclusive set of Watcher Palico gear inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn, and now they’ll have a chance to dress like Horizon protagonist Aloy herself. The second part of Monster Hunter World’s Horizon crossover event is now live, and as before, you’ll only have a limited time to complete it.
From now until March 15, players can embark on a new Event Quest called The Proving. This six-star mission requires a Hunter Rank of 11 or higher to accept, and it takes place in the Ancient Forest. The objective of the quest appears to be fairly straightforward–hunt an Anjanath–but this particular monster is much larger than the ones players have encountered in the game so far.
“Many captivating machines appear in Horizon Zero Dawn, but the one that made the biggest impression on the Monster Hunter: World development team was the Thunderjaw,” Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto explained on the PlayStation Blog. “Anjanath has a very similar skeletal structure to the Thunderjaw, so we felt it was the best fit to be the main adversary in the quest, but not just any Anjanath would do. This Anjanath is at a scale that many players will have never before encountered, and your typical attacks may not reach its height.”
Completing The Proving quest will reward you with materials that can be used to craft Aloy’s Bow and armor set. Equipping the full set will change your hunter’s appearance to resemble Aloy, regardless of your character’s gender. You can find out exactly how to unlock Aloy’s armor and bow in our guide. You can also take a look at some screenshots of the gear in the gallery above.
The first Horizon-themed Event Quest in Monster Hunter World, Lesson of the Wild, ran until February 8. If you missed out on that quest the first time around, you’ll soon have another chance to get the Palico gear. Tsujimoto revealed that Event Quests operate on a “rotating schedule,” so the Lesson of the Wild quest will return to the game again “at a later date.”
In addition to the new Horizon Event Quest, some PS4 players can also still take part in Monster Hunter World’s first Street Fighter V quest. Those who have a save file of Street Fighter V on their console can accept the Event Quest titled Down the Dark, Muddy Path, which will reward players with material to create a set of Ryu armor. That quest and a second one for Sakura armor will be available to all PS4 and Xbox One players at a later date.
