While Monster Hunter World players are busy fighting Final Fantasy 14 Online’s Behemoth, players of the MMO will soon be fighting a creature from Monster Hunter.

Today’s release of Patch 4.36 for Final Fantasy 14 Online adds the flying wyvern, Rathalos from Monster Hunter World.

The monster is part of a collaboration between the two games, the first of which was the addition of the MMO’s Behemoth to Monster Hunter World.

Final Fantasy 14 players can challenge Rathalos in either Normal or Extreme difficulty for numerous in-game rewards.

Level 70 FF14 players who have completed the Stormblood main scenario quest can immediately undertake The New King of the Block quest to face Rathalos in The Great Hunt trial. It is an eight-player battle incorporating mechanics inspired by Monster Hunter World.

The extreme version of the battle, The Great Hunt, is a four-player version of the trial that features additional hurdles.

Beating the monster will net the following Monster Hunter World-themed rewards:

  • Rathalos Armor Set – Equipment Inspired by Rathalos
  • New Minions – Poogie and Palico
  • New Mount – Ride Rathalos, the King of the Skies, throughout Hydaelyn
  • New Furnishings – BBQ Spit

Patch 4.36 also introduces the next chapter in The Forbidden Land Eureka series: The Pagos Expedition. Players will now be able to explore an all-new area, use strengthened Eureka weapons, and obtain minions as an addition reward. Full patch notes are posted on Lodestone.
