One of the big surprises from E3 2018 was a Monster Hunter: World x Final Fantasy XIV crossover that’ll bring Behemoth to the hunt, and it’s been announced that the free update will arrive in August.
Monster Hunter executive producer Ryozo Tsujimoto made an appearance in the 100th episode of MonHun Radio, where he announced that the game’s fourth additional monster, Behemoth, will arrive in an August update.
The Behemoth fight, that was made in part of a Final Fantasy XIV collaboration, will first be playable at the “Hunting Thanksgiving 2018” event set place at the Makuhari Messe on July 15, 2018. On the other side of the crossover, Final Fantasy XIV will get a Rathalos fight sometime in the near future. You can check that out here.

Monster Hunter: World is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version arriving this fall. Read more about how the collaboration happened in an interview featuring Ryozo Tsujimoto and Final Fantasy XIV producer/director Naoki Yoshida in our previous report.
