Successful Hunters are able secure a variety of rewards as part of the Final Fantasy 14 crossover update, including the Drachen armour set, the Gae Bolg insect glaive, and Dragon Soul Kinsect, all inspired by Final Fantasy's Dragoons.

Additionally, there's the utterly adorable Moogle α set, so that your Palico to get into the spirit of things, and sharp-eyed Hunters might also spot the odd Cactuar out in the wild.

You can dress your Palicos in the adorable Moogle α set.

Monster Hunter World's Behemoth update will be the fifth major content update to come to PC. Previous offerings, which introduced the likes of the Arch-Tempered Kirin, Elder Dragon Lunastra, Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth, and the Deviljho, alongside seasonal events, have been arriving at an increasingly rapid pace. With the addition of the Behemoth, the vast majority, if not quite all, of the content seen on consoles can now be enjoyed by PC players.
