While Monster Hunter World is no longer the latest game in the franchise, as of the release of Monster Hunter Rise back in 2021, it still proves to be a popular game for fans of the series and modders. With Monster Hunter World mods allowing great changes to weapons, playable characters, and more, it seemed only a matter of time before one player decided to bring some other major characters from The Witcher universe in to support the monster hunt.
Yennefer and Triss are two of the most well-known sorceresses from The Witcher books and games, with both characters also appearing in The Witcher TV series. In the games, Triss is the more prominent character, while Yennefer only appears in the third game. However, both Yennefer and Triss are two romance options for the player in The Witcher 3, and the rivalry between the two has led fans into heated debates on which sorceress is better for years.
Unlike in The Witcher 3 though, Monster Hunter World players won't have to worry about which sorceress' heart they'll break. Instead, the mod actually allows for Monster Hunter World players to play as either Triss or Yennefer, with the models of the characters replacing certain armor sets. Triss replaces the Commission and Rot armor, while Yennefer replaces the Brigade armor. Both Triss' base game and DLC outfit make their way to Monster Hunter, though through screenshots it appears only Yennefer's DLC outfit is available in the mod.
Changing playable character options through modding is nothing new to Monster Hunter World. Previously, there have been mods that have allowed the player to become anything from Nier Automata's 2B to Simba from The Lion King. The Witcher games have also been known for an active modding community, with The Witcher 3 mods helping to keep the game active among fans even seven years after it initially launched.
Monster Hunter: World is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
