Slaying monsters are nothing new the fearless hunters of the New World but Behemoth is unlike any they have seen before. Going up against him will need you to come up with finest tactics and reliable teamwork. Of course, strategies are the key here but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't worry about your weapons and item loadouts. Your well planned best defenses may fall apart by his relentless mighty attacks after he locks target on you with enmity, its wrathful gaze.

Players would be wise to aim for his head and try to block or evade his big hits to save up health.

Previously, MHW entered in similar timed events with Capcom games and other third-party titles like Devil May Cry, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mega Man and Street Fighter. However, crossing over with something as big as Final Fantasy is surely an extravaganza for fans of the franchise. Besides, this collaboration event is long due because producer Ryozo Tsujimoto of MHW and director Naoki Yoshida of FFXIV have envisioned something like this back in 2011 while focusing on their own projects.
