Astera (Japanese アステラ) is a village first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. It is the home of the Research Commission in the New World.



  • Astera was built by the First Fleet.[1]
  • Researchers gather info, hunters gather to hunt, technicians keep everything together, etc.
  • Occasionally, captured monsters are brought back to Astera for researchers to study. The last monster the player captures will be asleep on a platform next to the main gate.[2]
  • Hunters can freely roam the New World and take as many quests as they please.[3]
  • The Field Team Leader was born in Astera.[4]
  • Astera is powered by water turbines. The turbines use water currents from a nearby waterfall to provide the necessary energy for Astera, which is used for various equipment in the village.[5]
