Monster Hunter World’s latest free update, 4.0, is now out and it adds a new Elder Dragon, among a variety of gameplay changes.
Per Capcom’s blog post, players can now take on the Empress of Flame, Lunastra, a returning Elder Dragon who has appeared in past Monster Hunter titles.
Lunastra is more aggressive than her male counterpart Teostra, with both able to fight side-by-side. Lunastra can also easily alter the environment, and teamwork is essential when trying to defeat her.
Taking down Lunastra will net players rare materials which can be used to craft special armor and weapons. These materials can also be combined with those from Nergigante and Xeno’jiiva, among other monsters.
