There are tons of articles out there stating that today at 8PM EST MH World update 3.0 is being released.
Not only that, but there is also a new 16 man hunt that will be introduced. Mind you, it is only 16 in the overall term, but it is just 4 groups of 4 each doing something to repel a Beast... Kuval... or some other giant Ram.
On screen with you will be 3 other people, but all 16 players will be doing their stuff in their own instances that will be Objective based.
There is also a return of Relics... random items and armors with distinct stats and abilities that are randomly assigned by the MH Fairy.
If my RNG luck has anything to say about this.. I will be getting garbage.
This even lasts 2 whole weeks, after which, we will see what happens.
Good hunting everyone!
