Monster Hunter: World official screenshot of Kulve Taroth

Kulve Taroth and its accompanying siege battle have been available on consoles for quite a while now, but as of the latest update the gold plated dragon has finally become active on the PC as well! Since this is a difficult fight you will first need to finish the game and be at Hunter Rank 16 or higher, after which you will be able to start finding Scattered Gold Chips throughout your missions. Harvest a couple of those and you'll be given access to what is essentially a raid given how many players are involved.

In terms of rewards, Kulve Taroth will drop materials that you can use to craft two armor sets for yourself, as well as one set for your feline companion. There will also be two new cosmetic armor sets to collect, and perhaps most importantly for those of you that like toying around with numerous builds, a chance to receive random weapons after each quest. A pretty rewarding battle, should you manage to survive it anyway!

Besides Kulve Taroth, this update has also added a couple of interesting new options to toy around with. Since there is no easy way to summarize what each of them does, allow me to simply share with you the rather brief patch notes:

Added HDR Mode to the display settings.

- From the main menu, go to Options and select "Screen Mode / HDR Setting."

- This option is only available on Windows 10.

Revised the list of actions available under "Keyboard Settings" in the Options menu. You can now set Interact, Speak, Gather, Carve, and Special Attack to separate buttons.

Added "One Key Keyboard Shortcuts" to Options.

- On: Press a shortcut key (any number key from 1 to 8) to immediately use the shortcut for the most recently used radial menu.

- Off: Press a radial menu key (by default, any key from F1 to F4) to bring up a radial menu, then press a shortcut key (any number key from 1 to 8) to use the shortcut. This is only displayed in the Options when "Radial Menu Type" is set to "Keyboard."

Added "Start Menu Player Movement" to Options. When "Start Menu Player Movement" is set to "Off", the player movement keys (WASD) are used to move your menu selection while the menu is open.

That's pretty much everything you need to know, but if you're looking for all of the details you should head on over to the Steam. Have fun with Kulve Taroth, and if you're lacking any in-game money, don't forget that you're fighting a dragon made out of actual gold!
