Elder Dragon Lunastra, Teostra’s powerful mate, finally makes her way into the PC edition of Monster Hunter: World on November 22.
Capcom announced earlier today in a Steam post (via Eurogamer) that Elder Dragon Lunastra will be added to the game next week in the title’s fourth major update. Along with her introduction comes new weapons, armor, and a Palico armor that can be crafted from her materials.
A new Specialized Tool can also be acquired after defeating Lunastra called the “Temporal Mantle.” This item automatically “Nullifies damage from powerful attacks by automatically evading.” The evasion triggers when you are attacked while on the ground.
To access her fight, players need to have first completed the game at HR 16 or higher, and then speak with the Huntsman in Astera to begin the event.
Here’s a look at the fight from the console version.
In addition to the Lunastra encounter and associated items, the update brings with it several new visual options/enhancements:
DOF (Depth of Field)” will be added to the Advanced Graphics Settings. This feature allows you to enable/disable the functionality to adjust focus by changing the camera distance.
“Vignette Effects” will be added to the Advanced Graphics Settings. This feature allows you to enable/disable shading of screen edges by adjusting the brightness between the center and peripheral areas.
Again, the update goes live November 22nd, so you’ve still got some time to prepare for the fight. For more info on the Lunastra encounter, the Monster Hunter: World wiki has some solid info that can help you get ready for the battle.
