​Modder Adds The Alien Queen To ‘Monster Hunter: World’

​Modder Adds The Alien Queen To ‘Monster Hunter: World’

Monster Hunter: World is already pretty set for gnarly creatures for you to battle with, but even the happiest player has to admit that none quite rival the Alien Queen Ripley fights at the end of Aliens. Thankfully a modder has stepped in so Capcom and 20th Century Fox don't have to, and it looks fantastic.

Modder UberGrany has replaced Xeno'jiiva with an Alien Queen model they found online. The model swap works well, particularly as Xeno makes full use of its anatomy, striking with its tail as much as it lunges with its teeth.

You can see the queen in action in the trailer below, along with a starring role from Nier Automata's 2B and Thomas The Tank Engine (watch it here if you're reading on mobile):

Installing the mod is simple. You can download it from Nexus Mods and then simply drop it into the Monster Hunter: World folder in your Steam directory.

I'd never considered the Alien films fitting into the Monster Hunter mould. In my mind Alien is Alien Isolation and Monolith's Alien Vs Predator 2, games that lean into your vulnerability and stealth. But, actually, wouldn't it be awesome to carve your way through the xenomorphs with a hulking great sword? Sure, it's not exactly in line with the fiction and any sword is going to have to contend with a lot of alien blood - let alone the risk of your character getting splattered - but it would be a new take on the series.
