The base game 'Monster Hunter: World,' sold separately, is required in order to play this content.
Let your hunting instinct take you further than ever!
'Iceborne' is a massive expansion that picks up after the ending of Monster Hunter: World and opens up the new 'master rank!'
New quests, monsters, weapons, armor, and story await to take your hunting to the next level!
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.
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.
To ready players to face the expansion’s fierce hunts, several new gameplay options have been added to broaden the player’s combat repertoire, creating opportunities for exciting new hunting strategies. The Slinger can now be used while the main weapon is drawn, regardless of weapon type. New features have also been added for the Slinger such as the Clutch Claw used to grapple onto monsters with more direct control and the Flinch Shot which unloads Slinger ammo to stun monsters. Each of the 14 weapon types will also get new combos and new elements, offering additional depth to master in combat.
You can also add Pendants to your weapons now.
The Iceborne Expansion continues the Storyline from Monster Hunter World, advancing the Fifth's Fleet efforts to understand the new World. A new Quest Rank, alongside a variety of new Assignment and Optional Quests are expected. Supplementary Event Quests, Optional Quests and Special Assignments are also expected.
