Monster Hunter: World (opens in new tab) is getting an Assassin's Creed-themed crossover event, complete with outfits that make you look like Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Bayek of Siwa.
The event is live on consoles right now but, sadly, PC gamers will have to wait until an unspecified "later date".
When it does arrive, you'll be asked to complete a tricky new quest called “SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce", in which you'll slay high-level monsters. Finish it and you'll be granted a Senu Feather—get two feathers and you can trade them in for either the Bayek Layered Armor, which you can wear over your existing armor, or the Ezio-style Assassin's Hood.
When worn, the hood boosts your damage when attacking from a stealth state, and makes you faster when running or climbing. You can see it in action below.

In another crossover event, The Witcher's Geralt is due to arrive in the hack-and-slasher early next year (opens in new tab).
