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 expedition team that ventured into the New World.[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]
