The siege event is somewhat like a raid in that it's a cooperative effort but unlike a normal fight with 4 players you can add up to 16 players to take on Kulve Taroth.More news: NASA's new planet hunter launches this week to seek new worlds
Battle the new Kulve Taroth to unlock new hunter and palico armor. Up to 16 players total will be split into four groups of four players, all tackling different tasks but working towards the same common goal of bringing down Taroth.
Below you can check out a trailer showing Kulve Taroth in action, and screenshots showcasing the armor and weapons you can craft with the materials it'll drop. This new quest type is designed and balanced for multiplayer, so call up your Squadmates, or join up a dedicated Kulve Taroth lobby, and make sure to coordinate with other hunters if you want to earn the best rewards.More news: Supreme Court Strikes Down Mandatory Deportations for Immigrants Convicted of Some Crimes
Ultimately, you'll need to repel Kulve Taroth and its shiny golden mantle of collected weapon relics the creature has picked up while travelling through the New World. The type and stats of these weapons "are entirely up to fate", so expect something interesting at least.
The first Kulve Taroth Siege is scheduled to start on April 18 at 5pm PST/8pm EST/April 19 at 1am BST. Players will no longer be removed from squads after 30 days of inactivity, and Flash Pods will be less effective when used on Tempered Monsters. In addition, players will gain access to two new armor sets, with a third available for Palicos. But Capcom said the Siege mode "will return at a later date", so presumably we'll get to play it eventually-and now we know a little more about what we've got to look forward to.More news: Chelsea star Alonso charged by FA
