Monster Hunter World’s beautifully strange Resident Evil 2 remake crossover event begins today. The Raccoon City collaboration brings Resident Evil 2-themed items to the game, along with a special, zombie-filled monster hunt. Capcom released Monster Hunter World: Iceborne 11.5 update (11.5 on PS4 and 126.96.36.199 on Xbox One) patch notes, detailing the Resident Evil 2 event and other new content coming soon. We’ve got a breakdown of the Monster Hunter World Resident Evil 2 crossover update — including how to get the Leon and Claire armor sets — below, along with Capcom’s full patch notes.
How to get the Leon and Claire armor sets in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
Once the Monster Hunter World Resident Evil 2 crossover event begins at 4 PM PST, players will be able to take on a new event quest called “RE: Return of the Bioweapon.” This will send them on a modified hunt for the zombie-like Blackveil Vaal Hazak monster. The spores it spews will have a different effect than normal, but Capcom did not say what exactly this would be. From the event’s trailer, it looks like the spores could turn players into zombified husks of themselves, perhaps somehow hindering them in combat. In order to reduce the effects of the spores, players will need to consume Green and Red Herbs found out in the field. The Resident Evil crossover will conclude on December 5 at 4 PM PST.
Once players defeat the Blackveil Vaal Hazak in this mission, they’ll earn special materials that can be used to craft the Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield Full Armor Sets. Players can also unlock Resident Evil-themed pendants for their weapons. The trailer shows a Mr. X outfit for the Handler companion, but Capcom did not mention how to unlock this in the patch notes.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne 11.5 update patch notes
Along with detailing the Resident Evil crossover, Capcom included information about other upcoming content drops, including a weapon design contest Charge Blade, a Palico design contest outfit, and the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration, which arrives on November 21. Of more immediate concern are the patch notes for update 11.5, which is available now.
