The latest in a series of trailers for Monster Hunter World: Iceborn has been released. The series introduces viewers to some of the creatures they will encounter when the Iceborne expansion launches next week. In this episode, Brachydios is revealed. Some may remember this formidable boy from Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
Brachydios has an awesome roar and will quickly overwhelm players with his “powerful arms” that slam into the ground. In addition, he is covered with “green explosive Slime” that can have a catastrophic effect on his pursuers. If he manages to activate the Slime, let’s just say the results are explosive. With his agile movements, players will definitely need to be on their toes to stay out of the way.
About Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
Massive “Monster Hunter World: Iceborne” expansion
A diverse locale, rich with endemic life. Numerous monsters that prey on each other and get into turf wars. A new hunting experience, making use of the densely packed environment. Monster Hunter: World, the game that brought you a new style of hunting action, is about to get even bigger with the massive Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion!
All-new Hunting Mechanics
All 14 weapon types have new moves and combos. Each weapon has more unique actions than ever before. Every weapon now lets you use the clutch claw, a new function of the slinger, to grapple onto monsters. You’ll drain your stamina while clinging onto monsters, but it opens up various new ways of controlling their movement!
New Quest Difficulty: Master Rank!
On top of low rank and high rank, there is now a new quest difficulty called “master rank.”
Master rank quests will become available once you purchase the Iceborne expansion. You’ll be able to earn new materials and fight even stronger monsters on these quests!
New Locale: Hoarfrost Reach
An unknown environment, yet to be discovered by mankind. Hoarfrost Reach has plenty of unique endemic life and monsters that could only exist in such a harsh climate. It has diverse geographical features as well, from deep stretches of snow that impede your movement to relaxing hot springs, and even unstable ground that could collapse at any moment! The visual effects are some of the most detailed the Monster Hunter series has ever seen!
