Monster Hunter: World Elder Dragon, Kulve Taroth, Gets Limited Time Event

Siege, a new way to hunt with friends.

As Monster Hunter: World gears down the limited Spring Blossom Fest, the next big monster update has been revealed: The Siege of Kulve Taroth.

Kulve Taroth is an Elder Dragon that players will be able to investigate in the next free update. But for such an awesome foe, hunters will need to employ a new strategy, the siege. Check out the new trailer below.

Kulve Taroth, the new Elder Dragon

Siege is a brand new, limited quest type that will put a band of hunters on a large scale assault against Kulve Taroth. All participating players will group up in the same Gathering Hub, which can hold up to 16 hunters. Once ready, hunting parties of up to four will work together to repel the Elder Dragon.

Each party will contribute to fighting Kulve Taroth so it's very much a collaborative event, even more so maybe than your typical Monster Hunts. Capcom says that the Siege is "designed and balanced for multiplayer," so it's perfect for you and a group of friends.

Kulve Taroth's gold mantle is actually a collection of shiny weapon relics. Capcom says that the type and stats for the weapons you earn while fighting Kulve Taroth are up to fate. And just so you don't commit any fashion faux pas, you can use Kulve Taroth materials to get the blacksmith to make you some matching shiny armor.

The Kulve Taroth Siege begins April 18 at 5pm PT/8pm ET. We're already months into Capcom's latest Monster Hunt game, but as our Monster Hunter: World review will attest, we have reason to still be obsessed.
