The developers of Monster Hunter: World have shared a new trailer for the upcoming expansion Iceborne. The video shows new types of monsters such as the hotheaded Glavenus, Fulgur Anjanath, and Ebony Odogaron as well as a glimpse at the new Gathering Hub.
The team has also published the first dev diary with a closer look at the upcoming changes and new features.
- New and improved Gathering Hub – the new hub of Seliana streamlines the flow of meeting up with other players and tending to all your pre-hunt necessities by adding quick access to facilities like the Smithy, Resource Center, Botanical Research Center, and Argosy.
- Squad Cards and Sub-Leaders – new Squad functionality has been added to easily invite your friends and manage Squad members.
- Customizing your new room – now you can change up furniture, various décor items, and even the wall texture of “Your Room” for a more personal touch! The developers are planning to add a feature that allows you to invite friends to your room, in a post-launch update.
- Meet the monsters – The development team put a lot of thought into bringing back Glavenus as faithfully as possible, keeping its sword-like tail while giving it some new twists. They also show off extended gameplay of two newly confirmed subspecies—monster species that have evolved in different ways to adapt to new circumstances, often times gaining new elemental affinities and behavior tendencies.
Monster Hunter: World – Iceborne is coming to consoles on September 6, 2019. The Steam users will have to wait a while.
