Monster Hunter: World players can soon join their Palico in sporting Horizon Zero Dawn-themed gear, when the second part of the crossover quest line drops on PlayStation 4.
The second quest was originally detailed in an Event Quest roadmap released by Capcom, breaking down the various event and challenge quests that will be available in the game over the next few weeks. From the roadmap, fans learned that the second Horizon crossover quest, titled The Proving, would involve hunting an Anjanath (the T. rex–looking monster) through the game’s Ancient Forest zone.
The quest requires players to be at least rank 11, which is accomplished by progressing through the game’s main campaign. The Proving will be live in the game between February 28th and March 15th, during which time players can conquer it and earn unique Horizon-themed gear for their hunter. The gear will turn players into Aloy from Horizon, complete with her classic bow, which is acquired by crafting the unique materials dropped by the Anjanath during The Proving mission.
An image of the armor and bow, paired with the Palico gear from the previous quest, was recently posted to the Monster Hunter Twitter account.

There are no details yet on the stats of Aloy’s armor and bow, but we do know the armor will only be offered as a complete set, meaning it can’t be mixed and matched with other gear. Like the Palico quest, which unfortunately ended February 9th, Aloy’s quest is also exclusive to PlayStation 4.
The same Event Quest schedule that detailed The Proving quest also covered another previously announced crossover event with Street Fighter V. Launching first for those with Street Fighter V data on PS4, players can take on challenge quests to unlock hunter armor sets of Street Fighter characters Ryu and Sakura. Like the Horizon armor set, the Street Fighter armor can only be worn as a complete set. Unlike the Horizon set, however, the Street Fighter V items will also be available on Xbox One, despite the fact that the game they’re based on is not.
