Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is due for release in September for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While this is the only expansion for the game, Capcom has revealed that players will still receive free updates for Monster Hunter World as part of the DLC.
In addition to Velkhana, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will also introduce Brachydios, a marine-blue wyvern that attacks using explosive attacks, as well as Barioth, a snow-white wyvern with that packs a punch with its huge tusks. In addition, players will also encounter a new HQ in the Hoarfrost Reach, which includes an array of useful facilities and features.
Monster Hunter World hit stores back in January 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One, and broke records as Capcom’s best-selling individual title to date, surpassing Resident Evil 5 in the process. Well, that is, if you don’t count the numerous ports of Resi 5 there have been, as it would otherwise still rank at the top of the pile.
Capcom recently celebrated Monster Hunter World eclipsing the 13 million shipments milestone, and said that its RE Engine is fully equipped for the arrival of next-generation consoles, the PS5and Xbox Scarlett.
