Post-launch content has been revealed for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Here are the details.
Perhaps most importantly from the press release, subsequent major Iceborne content updates on PC and console will sync starting in April 2020. In the meantime, title updates for PC will begin in February including challenging monsters for players to conquer, expanded gameplay features, limited time events and more.
The first PC title update will be on February 6 and will include the Rajang, a fan favorite monster. Additionally, a new Volcanic Region will be added to the end-game Guiding Lands, and becomes accessible once players have started the special assignment quest to battle Rajang. You’ll also be able to visit other players’ rooms should you wish.
March 12 will see the second title PC update. It’ll feature Stygian Zinogre, a more vicious subspecies of the electrifying fan-favorite Zinogre. new Tundra Region will expand the Guiding Lands further with a snowy landscape that’s home to bone-chilling monsters such as Barioth and Viper Tobi-Kadachi.
On the console side, February through March will see new limited time event quests which will increase the odds of encountering gold crown monsters, decorations, and Great Spiritvein Gems while maximizing their rank.
The second anniversary will take place from January 23 through February 13 in either the cosmic Grand Appreciation Fest for Iceborne players, or the returning Appreciation Fest in the Astera Gathering Hub available for all players.
