It's October, which means video games are starting their annual Halloween events. However, it appears that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is going to be a little late to the party, as it has announced a Resident Evil crossover that won't get started until November.
The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Resident Evil event begins in November, though an exact release date wasn't nailed down. We also don't know how long it will last, or if it will add the Resident Evil content permanently or temporarily. At any rate, it looks as though the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne/Resident Evil crossover will be adding plenty of horror-themed cosmetics for players to collect, including Resident Evil 2-themed skins.
Players will be able to get their hands on a Leon S. Kennedy skin and a Claire Redfield skin for the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne/Resident Evil crossover. Additionally, they will be able to unlock a skin for the Handler that transforms her into the terrifying tyrant Mr. X. As one might imagine, this leads to some pretty hilarious cut-scenes.
As for other Resident Evil content coming as part of next month's event, it seems as though players will be able to unlock a Tofu cosmetic for their weapons, and zombies will also play a role. The trailer is a bit confusing when it comes to zombies, as they appeared to just be other hunters, but we'll find out more when the event starts next month.
In the meantime, the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne/Resident Evil crossover event isn't the only update that fans of the game have to look forward to. It was recently announced that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is receiving a free update on October 10 that will add a brand new area and monster. Upon downloading the October 10 update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, players will be able to visit a new volcanic area (assuming they've reached the Guiding Lands by completing Iceborne's main story), and it's there where they will find the new monster Rajang to hunt.
Between the Rajang update and the Resident Evil content coming in November, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne looks like it will plenty of content to keep players busy for the foreseeable future.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is out now for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release coming in 2020.
