Monster Hunter World: Iceborne begins hunting on the PC in January 2020
Are you excited for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne? I know I am, and we’re still months out from its release date. In a bit of good news though, Capcom has finally confirmed the PC release date for the upcoming expansion to their best-selling game ever, Monster Hunter World.
So we already know plenty about the frigid landscape of the Hoarfrost Reach being introduced in the new expansion, like all the new monsters to hunt in the difficult Master Rank quests. These powerful new enemies will push players to the limits, far beyond what Tempered or Arch-Tempered variants could do.
There’s a bunch of new tools and weapons too, completely changing how mounting and other integral aspects of combat work. Capcom will be including new and old beasties like Nargacuga, Glavenus, and Tigrex. Just don’t expect these new “friends” to be all that friendly. The story continues where the base game left off, with players having to track down a new source of chaotic energy that seems to be causing monsters in the New World to behave very strangely.
It will be very interesting to see what hunters to with these new challenges when the game comes out. And speaking of a release date, Capcom has now confirmed that Iceborne will land on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th, with the Steam release on PC coming in January of next year.
Keep in mind that if you’re looking to grind away some of that time until September 6th, Capcom has events going on in every version of the game. You can still take on Kulve Taroth as it’s Arch-Tempered version, as well as claiming Spring Blossom tickets and bonus daily Vouchers. Capcom also gave away some free Decorations and other goodies for the month of July, and continues to do so each day. So be sure to login and grab those bounties.
At least while we wait for the good new Monster Hunter that is Iceborne, we can also wait for the bad one that is the new Monster Hunter film. The trailer for it leaked a while back, and I have to say, I’m not impressed. And fans seems suspicious of its quality at best. What do you think of all this? Are you hyped for anything else Monster Hunter related? Let us know in the comments.
