Monster Hunter World Iceborne Release Date, Price, Size, Gameplay, New Monsters - Everything we Know

We now finally have a release date for Monster Hunter World Iceborne, as well as gameplay, DLC price, a new trailer, monsters, and more.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne has finally been revealed in full, after Capcom teased the DLC expansion near the end of 2018. We now have a solid release date for the DLC, as well as the news that it'll rival the size of the base game, which is pretty damn big. In our guide to the new expansion, we'll be going over the Monster Hunter World Iceborne release date, the Iceborne price, all the new Iceborne monsters that we've seen so far, and more.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Release Date

The Monster Hunter World Iceborne release date is September 6, 2019. The big new expansion for Capcom's game was originally revealed back at the end of 2018, and we finally have a date for when we'll be journeying to the new area.

However, this new Monster Hunter World Iceborne release date is for PS4 and Xbox One only. As of right now, the only release date we have for the expansion on PC is "Winter 2019" according to Capcom, so PC players will have to wait a while to visit the new area.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Price

As was revealed alongside the new trailer above, the Monster Hunter World Iceborne price is $39.99. However if you're new to Capcom's game, you can purchase a bundle featuring the base game of Monster Hunter World, plus the new expansion, for $59.99.

If you're thinking that's a big of a steep price for the expansion, Capcom has some good news for you. Supposedly, the size of Monster Hunter World Iceborne will rival the base game. Not only will Iceborne feature the single biggest area in the entire game, but it has enough content for a full release, hense the price tag.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Gameplay

Just below, you can see the brand new Monster Hunter World Iceborne gameplay trailer, which was first shown off during Sony's State of Play livestream in May. We got our first proper look at the new environment, in which monsters can bury under the snow, and there's a new grappling hook that you can use to travel across the snowy landscape quickly.

But later on, after the State of Play showcase concluded, Capcom held an extensive look at the new Iceborne expansion in the video just below. The new land is called Hoarfrost Reach, the largest region in the game so far. Outside of new monsters, you can encounter new smaller creatures like Popo, Stonebill, Rime Beetles, and Cortos, the latter of which is a new flying creature that you can hitch a ride on.

As for big new monsters, there's the Banbaro. This wyvern creature can pick up boulders between its two huge horns, and hurl them at you from a distance. The other monster is Beotodus, that can bury itself deep within the snow. Finally, there's Velkhana, the big new Elder Dragon of the Iceborne expansion, that uses ice attacks against you.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Trailer

Just below, you can see the full trailer for the Iceborne DLC expansion for Monster Hunter World, which was debuted during the Capcom livestream. In the trailer, we can see a Rathalos flying all the way from the Ancient Forest, across a body of water, to a new land.

And as of right now, that’s it for all the news on the Monster Hunter World Iceborne expansion. As soon as Capcom announces any new details about the hefty expansion, we'll make sure to update this guide straight away.
