Capcom has steadily supported Monster Hunter World for over a year now with regular events and creatures, but a major new expansion for the game is slated for launch later this year. In this Monster Hunter World Iceborne guide, we'll be going over all the details we know about the forthcoming content drop so far, including the Monster Hunter World Iceborne release date, all the trailer footage we've seen so far, and more.
If you instead need help with any other areas of Monster Hunter World at all, then you can head straight over to our full Monster Hunter World guides hub. Here you can find our full beginner’s guide to the game, as well as a list of essential tips and tricks that every players needs to know.
Monster Hunter World Iceborne Release Date
Capcom first revealed the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World in the livestream that you can see further down. This took place back on December 10, 2018, and Capcom chose to end the entire livestream on this bombshell note.
At the current time, the only release window we have for the Iceborne expansion is Autumn 2019. Theoretically, the Monster Hunter World expansion could release any time between September and November, but Capcom has promised more information about the expansion in early 2019.
As for what the price that the Iceborne expansion could retail for, it won’t be that of a full price game. You’ll need to already own Monster Hunter World to have access to the Iceborne expansion, and so it makes sense that it’ll cost less than the base game did at launch, since it’s an add on.
Monster Hunter World Iceborne Trailer
Just below, you can see the full trailer for the Iceborne expansion, 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.
It’s in this mysterious new land that the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World will take place. We don’t have any details on the land itself, but we know that it’ll feature both new and returning monsters alike, such as the Rathalos. We also know that Iceborne will feature an entirely original storyline for your characters to undertake.
There’ll also be brand new weapons and armor items in the Iceborne expansion, like you’d probably expect. It sure sounds like a pretty chilly climate where Iceborne takes place, but we’ll have to wait and hear for more details to find out for sure.
And as of right now, that’s it for all the news on the Monster Hunter World Iceborne expansion. As we previously mentioned, there’ll be more details about the expansion early in 2019, and we’ll keep this page updated with all the new developments.
