By bringing the necessary materials to the in-game facility (Smithy), you'll be able to forge the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration equipment.

Details on the exact timing and availability of the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration quest are coming soon.

        This game has become a boring game with all those repeating same events and monsters. The monsters variants are just too limited and the map's just stopped there. Hoping for tundra map to return but i don't think capcom will.

            Personnally i would like a area similar to areas 9 to 11 from the jurassic frontier as our "nocternal" map, the rotten vale is our cave area and i think necrylla would fit perfectly in the vale. but back to the "Fungal Wastes" as i call this hypothetical area, the food chain would go like this using monsters we already have and adding in small monsters (from top to bottom) Nargacuga > Garuga > Malfestio / Nescylla > Kut-ku > Konchu. with Chamelos as this area's elder dragon and duramboros doing whatever he wants. Narga as Apex beacause he is the perfect ambush preadator, then into Garuga beacause i couldn't think of anything else. Malfestio and Nescylla are equals beacause they both have sleep and are fought as the HR 4 urgent quest for their respective games. Kut-ku, do i even need explaining, and Konchu, beacause both the vale and the coral highlands don't have herbivores, so Konchu are okay in this hypothetical ecosystem.

              I just started playing this and i have to admit, the learning curve is steep. For the longest time, i couldnt "Join a quest" or send out SOS flares because i had to finish the story mode first before all that opens up (didnt know that you have to re-connect online after you let the game sit idle for a while). I got to Hunter ranking 14 with no help and was about to give up because i couldnt beat some of the monsters solo. Until i spoke to a co-worker and he told me everything. I felt so stupid.
