Ubisoft announces a new collaboration event between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Capcom’s Monster Hunter World.
Ubisoft has just revealed a new crossover event between Capcom’s action role-playing game Monster Hunter World and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Players of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla can already equip their Eivor, ride, and scout with skins modeled after the recognizable beasts in Monster Hunter World, thanks to the collaboration.
This crossover event did not just appear out of nowhere for devoted Ubisoft game lovers. New armor sets, notably from Monster Hunter World and Destiny 2, would be incorporated into the video game, according to recent Assassin’s Creed Valhalla data mining. When the Destiny 2 armor was introduced on December 1 of last year, the data mining was shown to be accurate. A few weeks later, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gamers can now choose from an armor set with a Monster Hunter World motif.
The crossover between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Monster Hunter World is already there in the game, according to a recent tweet from Ubisoft. The group included a little video in the post outlining what players may expect from the partnership. It consists of an armor set that Eivor can use based on Odogaron gear from Monster Hunter World, a mount skin that makes it appear as though Eivor is riding an actual Odogaron through England, and a cosmetic skin that transforms Eivor’s scout into a miniature version of the ice monster Legiana.

The video for the partnership event also displayed numerous weapons with Monster Hunter World themes that Eivor can employ in the game. These have the names Garon Hatchet and Garon Rod and are modeled off actual Monster Hunter World weapons. The designs have been modified to fit the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla setting. Many players of both video games praised the crossover in online forums. Some others also questioned why it took so long for the two businesses to combine, particularly since Monster Hunter World has already teamed up with the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Fans of both games now have additional motivation to keep playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, despite how long it ultimately took Ubisoft to establish the relationship with Monster Hunter World. Since Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s The Last Chapter marks the end of the development team’s support and material for the game, the community should probably expect that attention will turn to the series’ next installment. Hopefully, these small content upgrades will keep gamers occupied until the next Assassin’s Creed game is released.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Xbox Series X/S.
