With the impending launch of Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion, things are about to heat up in the land of Astera. With the huge number of changes being planned for the update, which comes in at a hefty 50 GB in size on the top end, MHW fans are going to have quite the adjustment period to get used to the entirely new game.
But you won’t have an easy time, as Capcom is throwing you right into the blizzard and yelling “git gud!” over the howling wind. That’s because you’re ultimately going to have to take on Velkhana, a powerful new Elder Dragon nicknamed the Everwyrm. Luckily, you’ll have some new tools to help with the process of hunting in the new Master Ranks. There’s the new Clutch Claw, and also an entirely new stable of deadly weapons.
Capcom isn’t content with just showing off some new gameplay though. Capcom is also revealing some details about pre-ordering the new expansion, as well details about what different editions of the game will be put out. Check after the video for details on that.
