The Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter: World was first revealed in December 2018, with the promise of more news about the DLC in early 2019. Capcom has now revealed a livestream for the game scheduled for later this week, which could give us more news about the upcoming DLC.
The Spring Update livestream for Monster Hunter: World will take place in the afternoon of Thursday, May 9, and will last around 35 minutes in total. The panel includes Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, executive director Kaname Fujioka, and "several other members of the dev team," according to the official Monster Hunter website.
Tune into the Monster Hunter Spring Update straight from the development team on May 9 / May 10. http://go.redirectingat.com?id=87431X1573192&xs=1&url=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2F8IzgK7NCNN pic.twitter.com/ajAydeKr98- Monster Hunter (@monsterhunter) May 7, 2019
News about Iceborne could be on the cards. Last we heard back at the reveal in December, Iceborne was slated for launch in Fall 2019, and we've heard nothing about the expansion since. Could Thursday finally bring us our first look at Iceborne?
The actual Iceborne DLC will be Monster Hunter: World's first paid post-launch content. Every other update to the game, whether it be the Kulve Taroth or the Deviljho, has been free so far. Capcom previously said that Iceborne will take place in a brand new area, with some brand new monsters, weapons, and armor items. It all seems set to be a pretty significant expansion to the base game.
