A crossover event between Monster Hunter: World and Assassin’s Creed is now live, with Bayek making the jump into Capcom’s phenomenal open world adventure.
You’ll need to complete a new event quest, “SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce”. If you manage to get through it it, you’ll gain access to a few new items, including Senu’s Feather, Bayek’s Layered Armour, and the Assassin’s Hood.
It’s worth completing as well, as the Assassin’s Hood will let you deal a massive amount of damage when stealthily attacking monsters. Meanwhile, Bayek’s Layered Armour will transform your character into the Egyptian assassin without affecting the stats from the gear you’re wearing underneath it.

You’ll have to be quick if you want to earn these special items though, as the quest will end on the 10th of January!
Don’t despair if you don’t manage to pull it off though, as a huge Witcher 3 crossover will also be happening later this year in Monster Hunter: World, along with a substantial expansion in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.
