Kulve Taroth Elder Dragon Shimmers In Monster Hunter World Update

Monster Hunter World's Spring Blossom Event may be coming to a close, but hot on its heels is a new, terrifying foe. On April 19th, the Siege of Kulve Taroth begins. This new limited-time quest tasks hunters to team up and track down the golden Kulve Taroth Elder Dragon for all the glory and loot.

For this Elder Dragon hunt, Capcom is introducing a Siege quest, which allows more collaboration than ever. Up to 16 hunters can team up in the same Gathering Hub to hunt down the same Kulve Taroth. Hunters will then be split into groups of four to track down this golden monster. As each group of four tracks and damages the Kulve Taroth, they make progress to the Siege for all of the involved hunters.

God Of War Soundtrack Gets Early Release On Spotify

The soundtrack for the upcoming God of War is available early on Spotify for people who want a taste of the music before the game's release this Friday.

The music for the game is composed by Bear McCreary, who also composed TV shows Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead,  and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

McCreary gave an interview with PSBlog about composing the soundtrack for the game, saying "As I collaborated with game director Cory Barlog, it became clear that this new game would require wholly new music that did not revisit the memorable scores of the original games, but instead ventured forth into new musical territory. I took my memories of that classic God of War soundtrack – the deep choirs, pounding drums, and shrieking brass – and reinvented them for a Norse age. I wrote new themes, and introduced to the music exotic instrumentation and languages from various Northern European folk traditions."
