Monster Hunter World Event Schedule
Events aren't a new aspect of Monster Hunter World-Capcom have regularly shuffled around limited time quests and hunts in the massive game, including a questline where you could obtain Watcher-themed Palico gear, as well as a limited time quest for Street Fighter 5 that first debuted earlier in 2018, but made a return during the Spring Blossom Festival event.

All the events so far in the game actually take place across a wide variety of areas in Monster Hunter World, including the special Arena, the Coral Highlands, Ancient Forest, and other locations that we're familiar with at this point. This means that Capcom are going to be adding new monsters and challenging in old areas, effectively switching up the established formula of areas like the Rotten Vale and Wildspire Waste.
Capcom has introduced some truly powerful new monsters for players to take on in recent months, including the Kulve Taroth which can take on 16 hunters at once. For all you need to know about taking down the elite Elder Dragon, head over to our Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Siege guide.
Monster Hunter World DLC Schedule
Capcom hasn't actually confirmed a great deal with regard to Monster Hunter World DLC right now, and while there have been rumors surrounding DLC, we know that Capcom are keen to add new monsters for players to slay, debuting the Deviljho,Kulve Taroth, Lunastra, and Behemoth so far in 2018. We could be in store for more new beasts down the line, but we'll have to wait and see to find out for certain.

With regard to the rumors swirling around upcoming DLC for Monster Hunter World, there's quite a lot to unpack. Reddit detectives have done some digging once again, coming up with evidence of three supposed DLC expansions for Monster Hunter World, launching in the Summer, Fall, and Winter of 2018. There are three new areas supposedly being included through these three expansions, and Capcom allegedly want to add a total of 10 new Elder Dragons to the game.
Whether this information is true or not, we've been unable to confirm, and it's also unclear whether this would be paid or free DLC, although the magnitude of the supposed content being added would seem to point towards it being paid DLC. Nevertheless, we'll keep this guide to the Monster Hunter World DLC updated with all future information that comes to light.
