Captain Artemis joins the fight
Well, this is pretty nifty. Capcom has announced that it will be adding a pair of limited-time quests to its blockbuster title Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, in order to celebrate the premiere of the upcoming Monster Hunter movie.
The “Artemis Monster Hunter Movie Quest” is a two-part adventure that will go live in-game on December 2 and then be available for an entire year. The single-player mission will task Master Rank 1 hunters with tracking down and tackling dangerous behemoths Black Diablos and Rathalos, with the reward of an exclusive Artemis layered gear set and a selection of movie-themed backgrounds, titles, and poses.
Of course, being based on Paul W.S. Anderson’s cinematic adaptation, what would the movie quest be without the film’s star, Milla Jovovich, also putting in an appearance? Jovovich has lent both her likeness and voice to the quest, recreating her role of Captain Artemis, a highly decorated military veteran who is thrust into Monster Hunter’s weird and dangerous world. Check out the new content in the video below.
The Monster Hunter movie is tentatively scheduled to release in theaters on December 4.
