Monster Hunter World: Iceborne PC Players Can Now Fight Stygian Zinogre and Safi'jiiva

Two of the most difficult monster available enter the fray.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players on the PC are nearly caught up with content available for their console counterparts. Today, Stygian Zinogre and Safi'jiiva finally arrive for non-console players to take on.

Both monsters arrive as part of the post-launch content for Iceborne. Stygian Zinogre and Safi'jiiva were both made available for PS4 and Xbox One versions of Iceborne near the end of 2019, and they've now both launched for the PC version of Iceborne today, on March 12.

As of right now, it's only the Safi'jiiva Recon mission that's available to undertake from the Gathering Hub in either Seliana or Astera. This is the introductory mission where you and three other players face off against the Safi'jiiva for the first time, learning all you can about the huge red dragon before you force it to retreat.

The full version of the Safi'jiiva Siege won't be launching for Iceborne PC players until next week, on March 20. This is the full 16-player Raid mission that allows you to actually slay Safi'jiiva, and just like with the console versions of Iceborne, it'll be launching after you've had time to experience the Recon mission.

Finally, the update that went live in the early hours of this morning for Iceborne PC players introduces the frozen tundra region to the Guiding Lands, and a tempered version of Ruiner Nergigante. Approach the latter with extreme caution.

Later on this month, Iceborne console players will be fighting Raging Brachydios and Furious Rajang come March 23 in a free update. Just typing out 'Furious Rajang' makes me shiver slightly.
