Following the release of the Devil May Cry HD Collection today, Capcom has confirmed that DmC content will be coming to Monster Hunter World. Players will be able to craft a weapon that will a cross between the Force Edge and Alastor.
It looks like we'll have complete a quest to get the content in the same vein as the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration, but Capcom hasn't confirmed the final plans. The Monster Hunter World Devil May Cry event quest and rewards will be released later this year.
Monster Hunter World Devil May Cry Event Quest Coming Soon
Here's the full lowdown from Capcom Unity:
You'll get to fight hellish foes in Monster Hunter: World to earn this devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor. In Monster Hunter, that weapon falls in the Charge Blade category, and typically features a hefty shield that, when combined with its matching sword, can turn into a massive axe. As you can see, we're putting a bit of a DMC twist to the formula and leaving the shield out of the picture altogether (you'll still be able to guard though) and instead of a sword turning into an axe, you'll get a Force Edge that turns into a massive Alastor. I, for one, cannot wait to wield one of these and slash a Deviljho in the face… to see if it cries. Please stay tuned for more information on when this content will be available. It will be available to all Monster Hunter: World players; you just need to complete the right Event Quest when the time comes.
There's also a trailer which shows you that we'll be able to hunt monsters in Dante's gear.
Monster Hunter World is now available to download on PS4 and Xbox One.
