LONDON (7th August, 2018) – Today’s release of Patch 4.36 marks the arrival of the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online and Monster Hunter: World collaboration. This latest update brings the mighty dragon, Rathalos, from Capcom’s hit title to the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV. Players can challenge this fearsome foe in either Normal or Extreme difficulty for numerous in-game rewards.
Level 70 FINAL FANTASY XIV Online players who have completed the “Stormblood” main scenario quest can immediately undertake “The New King of the Block” quest to face Rathalos in The Great Hunt trial—an eight-player battle that incorporates mechanics inspired by Monster Hunter: World. Those seeking a greater challenge can attempt The Great Hunt (Extreme), a four-player version of the trial that features additional hurdles to overcome.
Those who are able to best the ferocious beast can obtain a variety of Monster Hunter: World-themed rewards:
Rathalos Armor Set – armor sets inspired by Rathalos
New Minions – Poogie and Palico
New Mount – Ride Rathalos, the “King of the Skies,” throughout Hydaelyn
New Furnishings – BBQ Spit
Patch 4.36 also introduces the next chapter in The Forbidden Land Eureka series: The Pagos Expedition. Players will now be able to explore an all-new area, further strengthen their Eureka weapons, and obtain additional rewards such as minions.
Fans can also look forward to an exciting season of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Fan Festivals all over the world. North America will kick off the tour on November 16-17, 2018 in Las Vegas, followed by the European Fan Festival on February 2-3, 2019 at the La Grande Halle de La Villette in Paris, and ending with the Tokyo Fan Festival in March 2019.
