For PC gamers, the large interval between patches between PC and console has always been a major criticism of Monster Hunter World and the add-on Iceborne.
While the gamers on PS4 or Xbox One long ago impaled on the angry giant monkey Rajang or teamed up in a raid to kill the mighty Safi'jiiva (and loot the best weapons in the game), PC gamers and novice hunters had to be good in the camp waiting.
The wait is now over: The latest free title update brings Monster Hunter World to version 13.50.00, which corresponds to the status of the console version.
From now on only one version for everyone: As of now, patches with new content such as monsters or events as announced by Capcom will be released at the same time. If this is not possible under special circumstances, the developer promises an official announcement.

Roadmap: that's what Monster Hunter 2020 is planning
16-player raid is now playable for up to four hunters
Here we summarize the most important points of the patch for you. Among other things, Kulve Taroth returns in the master rank – but not as a siege quest. You can now hunt the golden dragon elder as normal with up to four players.
- Kulve Taroth in the Master Rank: It is now a normal event quest for up to four players, which can be started from the quest board – nevertheless the correct procedure remains crucial. Attention: If this is your first encounter with the dragon elder, you will first have to search for his traces in a small quest. The quest is called "The Eternal Gold Rush" and is available until May 7th at 7pm. The exact schedule for all time-limited event quests can be found at Capcom.
- New Kulve Taroth Rewards: In the master rank you can dust off a golden pendant in the Kulve design for your weapons. In addition, you will get new materials for which new armor can be crafted for you and your Palico. In addition, the weapons earned in the high rank can now be upgraded. So that you can still get them now, the high-rank siege is also available at the meeting place.
- Arch-Tempered Named Event Quest: The oldest dragon of the dragon can now also be hunted in a battle-hardened version. In "The Distant Dark Tide" he has stronger attacks, more endurance and higher element affinity. The quest starts on May 1st at 2 a.m. German time and is available for a limited time. Those who complete the quest deserve a pendant and materials for the gamma armor set.
- More fun for decoration fans: New Named Rewards can also be used to craft new layered armor sets (specifically Artian Armor, Black Belt Armor, Guardian Armor, Acrobat Earrings and Snowman Earrings). In addition, the patch increases the number of layered weapons or the available parts. Such decorative armor and weapon decorations change the look without affecting the values of the actual equipment.
The update also brings bug fixes and improvements. The complete patch notes can be found at Capcom.
The download size is 800 MB, or 2 GB, you should use the optional High Resolution Texture Pack.
