What You Need to Know:
- In advance of the “Monster Hunter” film’s upcoming North American premiere on Dec. 25, intrepid hunters of the Fifth Fleet can take part in limited time, film-inspired Event Quests in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne™ which arrive on Dec. 4. The highly-anticipated film by Paul W. S. Anderson stars Milla Jovovich, and brings to life the best-selling video game Monster Hunter: World, which has shipped over 16 million units worldwide. To celebrate the two “Monster Hunter” worlds colliding, players can watch two new trailers for a behind-the-scenes look at Milla Jovovich bringing her “Monster Hunter” character Artemis into Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, and a sneak peek at the upcoming collaboration content.
- In the special two-part Event Quest, hunters can go head-to-head with the fearsome Black Diablos depicted in the film during the initial solo quest, before attempting to overcome the massive Greater Rathalos in the second portion. Hunters must prepare to fight tooth and claw, as these quests will only be available for players who have achieved Master Rank. For those valiant enough to succeed, items like special gear, layered armor, new titles, a new background and Guild Card poses will become available. Additionally, starting Nov. 27 all Iceborne players will be able to claim one limited time item pack filled with useful items as a log-in bonus to celebrate the upcoming film.

About Sony Pictures’ Monster Hunter
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown. Based on the global video game series phenomenon “Monster Hunter.”
