Geralt OF Rivia enjoyed a cameo appearance in this year's Soul Calibur VI as arguably one of the better characters on the aged roster. Now CD Projekt RED and Capcom have revealed that Monster Hunter World, fresh off its Game Awards win for the year's Best RPG, will feature the White Wolf in its world as part of a free update happening early in 2019.

The new content also features the voice of Doug Cockle, reprising his role as Geralt, giving Monster Hunter World players a chance to take on "a series of Witcher-inspired quests".
The collaboration sees Monster Hunter: World players take on the mantle of Geralt of Rivia — a professional monster slayer equipped with superhuman strength and reflexes — and has them take on a series of Witcher-inspired quests. These offer a unique gameplay experience blending RPG mechanics of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with Monster Hunter: World’s game systems.

Geralt is a master swordsman considered one of the deadliest warriors in the world of The Witcher. Monster Hunter: World players get to utilize his signature fighting style, seamlessly blending swordplay, combat magic, and an assortment of monster hunting equipment.

The Witcher-inspired content is coming to Monster Hunter: World on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2019 as a free title update, with the PC release to follow soon. More details regarding the collaboration will be revealed at a later date.
It's really excellent to see a studio like CD Projekt RED not so precious about how they share their IP and character, as well as their willingness to collaborate with what would otherwise be considered 'rival' companies. More please.

Watch a trailer for the above, embedded below.
