Capcom announced today that the Iceborne Expansion of Monster Hunter: World, announced last December and that will add a new snowy setting to the title, arrives on September 6. The new glacial area will be called Hoarfrost Reach and will be characterized by a ruthless ecosystem, full of pitfalls for all monster hunters.

Below you can find all the details about the expansion, which rivals the contents of the entire original game, together with the trailer that reveals the gameplay and a set of images. Good reading and good vision!

The new expansion, Iceborne, develops in many respects the original Game, Monster Hunter: World, starting from a new story that takes over the ranks of the main story and leads the hunters in a New region called hoarfrost Reach. The snowy terrain offers a very different ecosystem to the main game and expands progressively with the development of the story. Iceborne will introduce the largest region ever seen before in the game, offering hunters a huge amount of new content, with even a larger number of quests than the original title.

Iceborne also introduces the new level of difficulty "Master Rank", which proposes new and old monsters to the fullest of their fierceness. The extreme cold is also the perfect environment for the proliferation of new enemies resistant to the most rigid climates, like the Wyvern ergot Banbaro and the Beotodus, lethal for its ability to move quickly under the snowy mantle. These join the return of some "favorite fans", like the lightning-fast Nargacuga who returns to the scene with some dangerous aces in the sleeve added to his fatal attacks, going to swell the ranks of monsters in Monster Hunter: World. To lead the pack of the new monsters of Iceborne is the mysterious Velkhana, an old dragon with powerful attacks of ice that represents a pervasive threat in the new narrative structure of the game.

The sling can now be used while the main weapon (of any type) is unsheathed, and it has also been enhanced with new extensions, such as the "Grits Claw" – which allows you to cling to the monsters with greater control of the movements – and the "slingshot burst" Which instead allows you to shoot a powerful shot to stun the monsters!
