Monster Hunter World’s 2nd Appreciation Fest brings loads of birthday treats

It’s been almost two years since Monster Hunter World strode confidently onto Xbox One and PS4, refining and finessing Capcom’s long-running franchise for a new generation. And to celebrate its 2nd anniversary (not to mention a staggering 15 million copies sold since launch), Monster Hunter World’s Appreciation Fest is now underway on all platforms.

It’s the second Appreciation Fest to be held in-game (the first, unsurprisingly, coincided with Monster Hunter World’s one-year anniversary), but the latest celebration arrives in two parts. The Astera Appreciation Fest is open to all players, and sees a reprisal of last year’s event, while the Seliana Grand Appreciation Fest is new, and exclusive to the superb Iceborne expansion.

The Astera Appreciation Fest features a suitably razzmatazz makeover for the Astera Gathering Hub, and adds event-exclusive challenges alongside a return for pretty much all previously released quests. That means you can happily farm monsters in a bid to craft everything from a Palico Mega Man outfit to the majestic Wiggler head armour.
