Monster Hunter World Iceborne Expansion Announced For Autumn 2019

Capcom announced the Monster Hunter World Iceborne expansion, coming Autumn 2019, during today's Special Developer Update stream.

Today, on the Monster Hunter World Special Developer Update live stream, Capcom announced a brand new expansion for the game, titled Monster Hunter World Iceborne. According to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, the Iceborne expansion is “massive” and will include “as much new content as previous “G” or “Ultimate” entries in the series”.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne will include new quest ranks, locales, monsters, moves and equipment. The expansion’s story will also follow the ending of the base game’s story and serve as a proper sequel. The expansion requires the base game to be played.

You can watch the reveal trailer of the Iceborne expansion below. Pricing and further information on the expansion will be revealed in Spring 2019.

Judging from producer Ryozo Tsujimoto’s words the PC version of the Iceborne expansion will launch a bit later than the console version, as it was the case with the base game. It’s also possible a new version of Monster Hunter World which will include the Iceborne expansion will be sold, but we’ll know for sure when more details are published in Spring 2019.

An Arch-tempered Kulve Taroth in-game event lasting from 4pm PST December 19 to 3:59 pm PST January 3 was also announced. Moreover, an Arch-tempered Nergigante in-game event will be coming soon as well. Lastly, details on new in-game events including seasonal events with new equipment and special anniversary quests will be coming in a future announcement.

Monster Hunter World is currently available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
