Square Enix today announced all the information of what players can expect when its highly-anticipated collaboration with Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World arrives in Final Fantasy XIV on 7th of August. The upcoming crossover, first revealed during this year’s E3, will test the mettle of players as they face off against the “King of the Skies,” Rathalos.
