'Monster Hunter World' 3.0 Update - Patch Notes

Monster Hunter World version 3.0 is live and brings with it a new Elder Dragon and quest type, along with fresh weapons and gear to construct.

The Kulve Taroth is the new Elder Dragon, and hunters will need to gather their friends to take it down. Capcom provided some information on this new siege quest, where up to 16 hunters in groups of four can find and battle this massive beast.

Version 3.0 will be available to download for PS4 and Xbox One around 8 p.m. EDT and will take up 1.2 GB of memory. In this update, the Caverns of El Dorado locale will become available and is where hunters will find Kulve Taroth. Armor sets Kulve Taroth alpha and beta will also become available to craft once hunters obtain the necessary materials. Palicos can also be equipped with the Kulve Taroth set.
