Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Reintroduces Horizon Zero Dawn’s Alloy in a New Collab Event

Horizon Zero Dawn's Alloy is coming back to the PS4 version of Monster Hunter World, together with the new Iceborne expansion.

Capcom revealed today that Horizon Zero Dawn‘s Alloy will be joining Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The reveal was made with a brand new trailer, included below.

The collab will make Alloy playable for the second time in Monster Hunter World. Specifically, this time, it’s a collaboration with Horizon Zero Dawn‘s first DLC, The Frozen Wilds. The Iceborne DLC and The Frozen Wilds DLC have a lot in common, needless to say, so this feels pretty natural.

There’s one important detail to take note of, just like with the previous collab, Alloy will only be available on the PS4 version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. PC and Xbox One players aren’t getting anything.

Horizon Zero Dawn has now sold over 10 million copies since its initial release in February 2017. The PS4 exclusive is regarded as one of the best games of this generation. To be honest I haven’t tried it out yet though, pretty much like any other game described as such. I tend to prioritize using my time on niche Japanese games.

The previous collaboration character in Monster Hunter World was The Witcher‘s Geralt of Rivia.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne launches on September 6 on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version will come a bit later in January. you can preorder the new physical version launching for Iceborne on Amazon. Here’s the Standard Edition and here’s the Deluxe Edition.
