Capcom Reveals Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Expansion, Coming Next Year

Capcom unveils several new Arch-Tempered creatures, as well as a "massive" new expansion for Autumn 2019.

Capcom has revealed a big expansion for Monster Hunter World, titled Iceborne. In the livestream, Capcom firstly detailed a console update, which showcased the return of the Kulve Taroth, as an Arch-Tempered creature.

Just below, you can see a full recap of the livestream itself. Aside from the addition of the Arch-Tempered Kulve Taroth Siege, Capcom revealed that you'll be able to obtain Rainbow items from the siege, should you fully accomplish taking down the beast.

After the Kulve Taroth update, Capcom announced the Appreciation Fest for all players. The Gathering Hub will be once again kitted out, and there'll be some brand new Anniversary quests. More information will follow on this at a later date.

Next, Capcom revealed a brand new Witcher collaboration quest. We've previously seen Dante featured in Monster Hunter World, but this time it's Geralt of Rivia's turn to enter the fray, coming in early 2019.

Arch-Tempered Nergigante was next on the announcements from Capcom. This update is coming in Spring 2019, and promises to be one of the toughest challenges for the game.

Finally, Capcom revealed Monster Hunter World Iceborne. Coming Autumn 2019, it's slated to be a "massive expansion" from Capcom, that'll close out the updates for Monster Hunter World. You'll need to already own the base game to access this new content.

It'll feature new quest ranks, stories, monsters, and more. It'll be the size of previous G or Ultimate expansions in the series. You'll be able to purchase it as an expansion for the base game, with price details due in Spring 2019.

To close out the special announcement livestream, Capcom revealed a trial version of Monster Hunter World. It'll only be available for 6 days, however, lasting from December 11, to December 17 on all platforms, PC included.
