So the general plot of the upcoming Monster Hunter film is an isekai story — a bunch of military folks are somehow sucked into the world of big angry monsters through some reason or another. That’s sort of what’s happening to the film’s star Milla Jovovich in Monster Hunter World, as she’s being brought into the game as part of an upcoming movie collab event.
Players will get to play as Jovovich’s character Artemis in two unique single-player quests where they’ll have to face off against a Black Diablos and a Greater Rathalos. Players will have to be Master Rank 1 or above and have completed the first part of the New World quest before taking on these individual challenges. Those who are successful will receive new armor, layered armor, and new guild card goodies inspired by the film. And better yet, Jovovich will be voicing her character in-game.
The event is set to kick off on Friday, December 4th, while the Monster Hunter movie is due to release on Friday, December 25th.
