As you might recall, Monster Hunter World won’t be getting the traditional G or enhanced release in favor of expansions. Iceborne is the first of possibly several more that is set to expand on the beloved title.
While there are still a lot of information up in the air, we at least know the expansion will release on Sept. 6, 2019. To go along with this news, Capcom also released a trailer showing off what to expect from the snowy expansion.
Below is what Capcom has revealed so far with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne:
In Monster Hunter: World, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. The story follows the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will build upon this story when it releases in autumn 2019 for PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One. For all the title updates revealed today, including the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, Capcom is planning to develop PC versions as well, and will share more on the availability in future announcements.
Monster Hunter: World is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players who have Xbox One can download the game for free if they are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.
Monster Hunter: World – Iceborne will be available on September 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
