A new Elder Dragon will arrive in Monster Hunter World tomorrow.

Capcom announced a limited-time event today for Monster Hunter World called the Kulve Taroth Siege, and its a 16-player cooperative quest.

The Kulve Taroth Siege quest requires the collaborative efforts of 16 hunters in the same Gathering Hub. Each hunting party will split off into groups of up to four hunters each. All teams will work together to investigate and hunt down the same Kulve Taroth.

Balance in the new Siege mode is the same regardless of hunting party size, and SOS Flares will be disabled during the quest.

“As each hunting party collects more tracks and breaks off more parts from attacking Kulve Taroth, they’ll contribute progress to the same Siege,” said Capcom.

“This new quest type is designed and balanced for multiplayer, so call up your Squadmates, or join up a dedicated Kulve Taroth lobby, and make sure to coordinate with other hunters if you want to earn the best rewards.”

The player goal with the Siege is to repel the Elder Dragon, and its “shimmering golden mantle happens to be a collection of shiny weapon relics.” The type and stats of these weapons “are entirely up to fate,” so expect something interesting at least.

Once players have gathered enough Kulve Taroth materials they should head over to the Smithy to earn a set of new armor for themselves and their Palico.

A brand new Layered Armor Set will be available. It allows players to change the appearance of a favorite armor set. Players should be on the lookout for a special delivery request after taking on their first Kulve Taroth Siege.
