Monster Hunter World Iceborne Has A Platinum Trophy

Monster Hunter World Iceborne is the only expansion for Capcom’s beast-hunting juggernaut, and is slated for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September. The expansion adds a brand new area for players to explore, and will also include a more challenging endgame thanks to fan feedback.

The Monster Hunter franchise has sold over 54 million units worldwide, making it Capcom’s second best-selling video game franchise behind Resident Evil. The series first launched back in 2004 for the PlayStation 2, and while initially mostly successful in Japan, has gradually become more popular in western markets.

Director Paul W.S. Anderson is bringing Monster Hunter to the big screen in September 2020, with the film starring Milla Jovovich (who also featured in the Resident Evil movies, many of which were helmed by Anderson), Ron Perlman, and Tony Jaa.

Capcom has said that its RE Engine is equipped for PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, so one can assume it will eventually churn out a new Monster Hunter game for new systems.

Monster Hunter World was released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One back in January 2018, and quickly established itself as Capcom’s best-selling game of all time. That’s a massive achievement, considering the previous game to hold that crown was Resident Evil 5. Still, if you combine all the versions of Resi 5, then it is still technically Capcom’s no.1 game.

The company recently confirmed that Monster Hunter World has shipped 13 million copies worldwide, and issued a free item pack to fans to celebrate the milestone.
