Monster Hunter World: Icebourne Reveal

Good afternoon fellow hunters. It is I your glaive wielding Beast here with the Monster Hunter World report. This is not live and most of you probably already know, but this is for those not in the know. I am excited as my glaive android app buzzed me on the new Icebourne details coming later on this year. Let’s look at that fine trailer! 

Icebourne is coming

“The Iceborne expansion builds on every aspect of Monster Hunter: World, starting with an all-new story that picks up after the main game and whisks hunters away to a newly discovered chilly locale called Hoarfrost Reach. The snow-covered terrain offers an ecosystem that contrasts areas in the main game and progressively expands with the story. Iceborne is set to offer the largest region in the game so far, presenting hunters a wealth of new content with even more quests to face than in the original release.”

I am so excited to see the new monsters and is that a winged Tobi? Nope, that is Nargacuga my friends! that we are going to have to face now? This means new recipes and new armor as well. Finally getting to use hot drinks, but I hope this is not all the monsters that they are showing us right now. 

The Higher Class calls for New Training

Iceborne also introduces the new higher difficulty Master Rank, a brand-new quest tier that makes new and existing monsters more ferocious than ever. The extreme cold is also the setting for brand new frigid climate foes such as the horned brute wyvern Banbaro and the snow-buried Beotodus. These interweave with returning fan favorites such as the swift-attacking Nargacuga who adds some dangerous new tricks to his trademark move set as he joins the Monster Hunter: World lineup. Leading the pack in Iceborne is the mysterious new flagship monster Velkhana, an elder dragon with powerful ice attacks that is a pervasive threat in the new story. 

It is time for us to get some new training as well with the new expansion the developers want to ready us for the upcoming battle. They have upgraded our slinger to now be used while the main weapon is drawn, no matter the weapon type. Other additions to our slinger are the Clutch Claw which can grapple on to monsters with more control. There will be a Flinch shot as well which can use slinger ammo to stun monsters. There is more, in addition, all of the weapon types will get added new combos for you to master in combat.

This is an expansion so naturally, the base game is required in order to play Monster Hunter World. Icebourne will be available on September 6th for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In the winter it will drop for the PC. The expansion alone will go for $39.99. 

Players will be able to enjoy some of the gameplay options such as the Slinger and weapon updates right away, they must have completed the main story through Hunter Rank 16 in order to access the new Icebornestory and quests. Several options are now available for pre-order for new or returning players on console either digitally or at participating retailers, with a special Yukumo Series layered armor set bonus exclusively for these early bird customers.

Existing players will have a chance to pre-order the MHW: Icebourne Deluxe Kit that will have the expansion and cosmetics for $49.99. If you are new to the series you can pre-order/pick up the Monster Hunter World: Icebourne Monster Edition for $59.99. Again I hope you enjoyed this latest update and if you ever want to hunt with me and the Sauce crew follow my twitchtv channel by clicking here. Are you exciting for the new winter expansion? – Beast Out –
