Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
PS4™ & XONE™ – US, EU, AU, ASIA & JAPAN
Last time, we’ve learned that Capcom‘s Monster Hunter series milestone has gone all the way up to the top with a whopping 61 million overall sales as of January 15 this year. And yes, the biggest contribution of the flourishing numbers goes to the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion and the base game itself, Monster Hunter World for Xbox One and PS4.
Now that the Iceborne expansion has gone to the world of PC gaming too, it wouldn’t be quite a surprise if the sales of the Monster Hunter series will continue to grow. Especially Capcom recently released Iceborne’s Roadmap of 2020 for both console and PC.
It was revealed in the roadmap that the version 13.5 will be releasing in three months from now for both consoles and PC as major content updates. According to Capcom, the new update in April will feature “New Arch-Tempered and Master Rank versions of existing monsters will be available at the same time for both PC and console players, followed by the return of a fan-favorite monster in May. More synced updates and additional monsters will be available in June and beyond, with details coming at a later date.”
While waiting for the Iceborne’s major update, players can enjoy and celebrate the game’s second anniversary through the cosmic Grand Appreciation Fest for Iceborne players, or the returning Appreciation Fest in the Astera Gathering Hub available for all players which will start on January 23 (PST) until February 13. Meanwhile, PC players can look forward to the arrival of the limited time Holiday Joy Fest in late February. It will provide an opportunity for players to get new layered armor, handler outfit, Poogie clothing and more.
For the complete list of updates, you can check out the images and press release below, via Capcom.
Capcom today released a roadmap for upcoming free Monster Hunter World: Iceborne post-launch content updates for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, and Steam (PC). In addition, Capcom has also confirmed that the timing for subsequent major Iceborne content updates on PC and console will sync starting in April 2020. In the meantime, both console and PC hunters will be able to celebrate the second anniversary of Monster Hunter: World with in-game events for players across World and Iceborne.
Following the recent PC release of the acclaimed Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, title updates for PC will begin in February. The free content will include challenging monsters for players to conquer, expanded gameplay features, limited time events and more. The centerpiece of the first PC title update on February 6 is the fearsome Rajang, the ruthless fan-favorite monster that offers a challenge for even the most seasoned hunters. 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. Popular survival horror icons Leon, Claire and Tyrant also pay a visit to Iceborne for the limited time Raccoon City collaboration, where hunters can acquire materials to craft Leon α+ and Claire α+ full armor sets plus three Raccoon City themed pendants to spruce up their favorite weapons. The first title update also brings the ability to visit other players’ rooms, and limited time quests that provide materials to forge the Hunter Weapon and Palico armor + weapon from the Iceborne Design Contest winners. Paid DLC options for room décor have also been added for those that wish to spruce up their place even more for guests.
On March 12, the second PC title update will star Stygian Zinogre, a more vicious subspecies of the electrifying fan-favorite Zinogre, that harnesses dragon elemental damage instead of lightning this time around. A 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. As an added incentive, special materials exclusive to the Tundra Region can be used to further customize and upgrade weapons. Hardened PC hunters will also be able to attempt the challenging Safi’jiiva Siege to earn an arsenal of new Awakened weapons and craft powerful armor sets.
