Monster Hunter: World Mod Lets You Fight the Xenomorph Queen From Aliens

Monster Hunter: World Mod Lets You Fight the Xenomorph Queen From Aliens

In Astera, no one can hear you scream.

A new Monster Hunter: World mod will test your hunting abilities to the limit by pitting players against the Xenomorph Queen from Aliens as a boss monster. This should liven up your next monster hunt if you're stuck repeating endgame content.

The draught of content in Monster Hunter: World is well documented by this point. So, it's thanks to modders like UberGrainy that players can experience something new. In this case, it's a chance to fight a Xenomorph Queen head-on. The mod replaces the model for Elder Dragon Xeno'jiiva, and you can see the mod in action in the video trailer below.

There's no mod support for Monster Hunter: World officially, so you'll have to go through a couple extra steps to get the Alien Queen mod working properly. The full instructions for how to download and install the mod can be found on NexusMods.

As seen in the video above, other mods for Monster Hunter: World includes model replacements for your player character and a particularly sinister Thomas the Tank Engine mod. Those should keep you entertained as players wait for Monster Hunter: World's big Iceborne expansion.

Iceborne is an Ultimate-sized expansion that's expected sometime this fall for consoles and PC. More details will be shared during a special Monster Hunter livestream this spring, so until then, check out our Monster Hunter guide for the latest updates.
