First of all, I’d like to say thank you to all of our hunters who played
Monster Hunter: World. It’s been over a year since the game arrived on PS4.
Last December, we announced that Iceborne, a massive expansion for Monster
Hunter World will be arriving this autumn!
Finally, we’re pleased to give players the first look at our new
We’re also excited to reveal that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is
releasing worldwide on PS4 on 6th September 2019!
As seen in the trailer, the Hoarfrost Reach is the new locale featured
in Iceborne. This glacial area will feature its own harsh ecosystem. It’s a
little cold out there, so you’re definitely going to want to stock up on Hot
Here you’ll face off against the dynamic stampeding Banbaro and the
snow-plowing Beotodus who inhabit this area. Fan-favorite monsters from
previous entries in the Monster Hunter series are also making their return: One
of them is Nargacuga, a nimble foe whom I’m sure gave many hunters headaches
back in the day.
Also look out for the icy elder dragon, Velkhana. Not too much is known
about this monster right now, but it is the focal point of the new story in
Iceborne, so keep your eyes on it in the coming months.
These aren’t the only monsters coming to Iceborne, however. We have a
variety of brand-new monsters and fan favourites returning! I wonder whose roar
was teased at the end of the new trailer!
Luckily, your hunter has learned a few new actions to help you combat
these tough monsters. The Clutch Claw now allows you to grapple onto monsters
and perform feats in a way you never could before, and each weapon type has
gained new attack moves and combos with the Slinger. Customised parts have also
gotten an upgrade, increasing the breadth of your actions.
That’s all the info we currently have to share on Monster Hunter World:
Iceborne for the time being, but we’ll have more to share at E3 this year! Stay
with us for more updates! Happy hunting!
