When the Iceborne expansion launches for Monster Hunter World, it will come with subspecies monsters. This new type of monster offers players a whole new experience. Subspecies are "extreme, twisted variations that amp up the difficulty and require master-level hunting skills to defeat". The video showcases the brute wyvern Fulgur Anjanath that channels lightning and the Ebony Odogaron that now has a wider attack range and dragon elemental.

Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher himself, has arrived in the console version of Monster Hunter World to take on "an otherworldly creature" that has arrived in New World.

Capcom has released a new video that showcases a collaboration between Monster Hunter: World and the Assassin's Creed franchise.

The Assassin's Creed collab will be available through January 10th for console players and will come to PC "at a later date".
