Lunastra, the famed Elder Dragon, will be available as a target next week in Monster Hunter World on PC.

Capcom has revealed that Lunastra, a female version of Teostra – another Elder Dragon, will be available in Monster Hunter World on PC starting Thursday, November 22.

Of course, defeating the Elder Dragon will let you craft unique weapons and armour sets for your hunter, and Palico. She’s available at HR 16 or higher, and the quest can be started by talking to the Huntsman in Astera.

Lunastra will arrive alongside a big patch, the game’s fourth major one on PC, in fact. The update adds the Temporal Mantle, which automatically forces evasion to avoid high-damage attacks.

Outside of the new content, the update will also come with a couple of new graphical features. The advanced graphics settings menu will now feature toggles to enable and disable Depth of Field, and Vignette Effects. Capcom is also making it easier for keyboard and mouse players to save their bindings in presets.
