You can play as Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn in Monster Hunter: World starting tomorrow


Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Aloy will join Monster Hunter: World in-game tomorrow as a special armor set as part of a collaboration between PlayStation and Capcom.

Running from Feb. 28 to March 15, a new event quest tasks you with hunting down a giant Anjanath in the Ancient Forest. Capcom said it chose the Anjanath because it most resembles the massive Thunderjaw robot from Horizon.

“This Anjanath is at a scale that many players will have never before encountered, and your typical attacks may not reach its height,” said Capcom producer Ryozo Tsujimoto. “We hope hunters will take on this challenge and enjoy a fresh new experience.”

Completing the quest will reward you with a Nora Brave Trophy, an item that will give you access to craft the Aloy armor set and the new Aloy’s Bow weapon. You won’t be able to mix and match armors with it, but the set will have its own unique set of skills.

You’ll probably need to complete the quest multiple times to get enough materials to craft all of the gear, so Capcom suggests joining up with some friends to complete it.

Luckily, if you missed the first event quest which gives your Palico armor to make it look like a Watcher from Horizon, event quests are on a rotating schedule. Eventually, both quests will return into the rotation.
