There are so many dates to keep track of in Monster Hunter World: Iceborneright now, but here's one more to remember. Capcom and Ubisoft are releasing a new event quest called "The Assassin" on April 10, 2020. As that name surely implies, it's another Monster Hunterx Assassin's Creed crossover.
You might've already picked up the Assassin's Hood mantle with the "SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce" High Rank event quest in the base game. Good on you! I missed it. The mantle lets you move faster, and better yet, it has a filthy critical sneak-attack capability that lets you put out ridiculous damage.
What's different with this Icebornequest coming in April? Basically, it's a chance to upgrade the Assassin's Hood mantle and make it worthwhile for Master Rank. It's a big ask to get players to swap out their mantle of choice, but I imagine some players have a soft spot for the Assassin's Hood.
Capcom also shared the latest sales figures for Iceborne – five million units shipped worldwide – and its ensuing token of appreciation. Players are getting a Celebration Item Pack with 50 Mega Potions, 50 Dust of Life, 10 Whetfish Fin+, three King Armor Spheres, and a Celestial Wyverian Print.
I'm thrilled with the support this expansion has gotten so far. It's a feel-good story.
