Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has received a litany of free updates already, introducing new monsters aplenty. Capcom today announced that the fourth free update for the game has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The announcement comes through the official Monster Hunter Twitter account in the tweet below. Originally, the next free title update for Iceborne was meant to launch next month in May, but it appears as though it's been pushed back indefinitely.
You might recall that this update was meant to introduce the return of the touted "fan-favorite" monster, Alatreon. The Blazing Black Dragon was revealed in the trailer below for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne earlier this year, and it certainly looks like a fearsome foe for even the toughest hunters out there.
Currently, there's no revised release date for the fourth free title update for Iceborne. As you can see in the revised schedule for Iceborne below, Alatreon will eventually be introducing a whole raft of new weapons and armor in the update.
But there's still the launch of the Arch Tempered Namielle on the horizon on May 1. The Master Rank Kulve Taroth was just introduced this last week to Iceborne, and there's still plenty to delve into as the Seliana and Astera Fests roll on in Monster Hunter: World, bringing back a ton of older event quests for you to complete.
