Black Dragon Alatreon is Coming to MHW: Iceborne

Capcom has taken to the PlayStation blog site to reveal the next updates coming to action RPG Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Starting today at midnight GMT/1am CET with the release of title update 3, both Raging Brachydios and Furious Rajang will blast their way into Iceborne. Reports say their move sets have been revamped and they punch harder than ever before. If you have what it takes to survive these grueling brawls, you will be able to craft some of the most powerful gear in the game! You’re going to need it as the embodiment of calamity, black dragon Alatreon, is already coming your way.

Alatreon is known as the “Blazing Black Dragon” but that moniker reveals only a fraction of what can be expected from this giant. Alatreon’s arrival is still distant and details on its behavior in the New World are still scarce, but stay tuned for more details as the Guild discovers more info on this awe-inspiring Elder Dragon.

Part of what makes Alatreon special is the category of monster it belongs to: “Black Dragon.” The existence of these “Black Dragons” has been treated more like a taboo in Monster Hunter series; so much so that there hasn’t even been much official information disclosed about these monsters.

However, in May you will be able to see with your own eyes that Black Dragons are not a scary fairy tale. They are quite real, and this one is out to get you.

For those seeking more light-hearted entertainment before setting off on what might be the most epic – or the last – of your Hunts, Full Bloom Fest will offer respite starting with April 10th.  As usual, the Gathering Hub will be fully decorated—this time with beautiful flower arrangements—and new quests and bounties will be posted up so you can craft seasonal Layered Armor, weapon pendants and more.
