MHW PC: Arrival of Lunastra and Devil May Cry Collaboration Event

Devil May Cry Collaboration Event Quest “Code Red”
Starting Thursday, November 15th at 7 PM EST until the 29th of November the Devil May Cry Collaboration Event Quest “Code Red” will be available! Stock up on Red Orbs as the Dante Alpha Armor will be a good addition to melee builds. The weapon is a throwaway one so its a low priority. Have extra Red orbs to craft the Dante Layered Armor in the future. For all the details about the armor and weapon, check out our detailed Devil May Cry guide for this event. This event will also unlock purchasable DMC gestures and stickers through the Steam Store.
On Wednesday, November 22nd at 7 PM EST, Lunastra will be introduced during the 4th title update on PC. Lunastra questline will involve players to fight her several times in various locations. Finishing the quest line grants players the Temporal Mantle as well as materials to forge her new armor, weapons, and palico gear. Hunters will have to talk to the Huntsman in Astera to start the questline. For all the detailed changes and addition this update will be check out our Lunastra Guide.
Bugs, Combat, Changes, Major Additions, and Localization Fixes
All fixes below will be arriving with the latest update on November 22nd:
- Fixed the bug where the custom radial menu stops working on keyboards after setting WASD keys for menu item selection under Keyboard Settings.
- Depth of Field will be added to the Advanced Graphics Settings.
- Allows players to enable/disable the functionality to adjust focus by changing the camera distance.
- Vignette Effects will be added to the Advanced Graphics Settings.
- Allows players to enable/disable shading of screen edges by adjusting the brightness between the center and peripheral areas.
- A preset function will be added to the Keyboard Settings
- This allows players to save changes they made to the key configuration.
- Default 2 option will be added for 5-button mouse controls.
- Charge Blade
- Fixed a bug where, if your Charge action is interrupted by damage when chaining it into a Condensed Element Slash in order to power up your Sword Mode attacks, the next attack will no longer mistakenly benefit from additional hits from phial effects.
- Dual Blades
- Fixed a bug where graphic and sound effects were not triggering correctly when exiting Demon Mode after any of the various combos.
- Fixed a bug where Dragon Piercer would fire outside the intended range when pressing the left trigger just as you release an arrow when the camera is facing outside the intended aim range.
- Fixed a bug where the effects from “Critical Draw” and “Punishing Draw” would expire before you could do damage with your weapon, due to unrelated, continuous damage sources such as torch pods. The effects from these skills will now only expire once you have made a direct weapon attack (including arrows).
- Fixed a bug where the translation for “Load Special Ammo” was the same as for “Reload” under Keyboard Settings in some languages.
