Capcom has revealed the new Glavenus trailer for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and also the first Developer Diary. The trailer features the hotheaded Glavenus as well as two brand new monster subspecies: Fulgur Anjanath and Ebony Odogaron. The trailer and Developer Diary, featuring developers Ryozo Tsujimoto, Kaname Fujioka and Daisuke Ichihara, give you a glimpse of the new and improved Gathering Hub, the Squad Card system, and more.
The new and improved Gathering 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. New Squad functionality has also been added to easily invite your friends and manage Squad members.
With a deep content offering that rivals the volume of the original release of Monster Hunter: World, the upcoming Iceborne expansion will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One globally on September 6, 2019, with a PC release to follow in Winter.
Picking up from the end of the storyline in Monster Hunter: World, Iceborne has players joining forces with the Research Commission once again to explore the undiscovered new land of Hoarfrost Reach, which will be the largest map in the game. Following an unusual sighting of Legiana from the Ancient Forest, the team journeys across the waters to a new locale with a frigid climate covered in snow and ice. As pioneers, the group soon sets up a new base camp in Hoarfrost Reach called Seliana, which serves as a warm haven with resources to prepare them for the challenging quests that await.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will introduce new monsters as well as returning series favorites. Tigrex, a frenetic creature familiar to fans of past Monster Hunter titles, joins Iceborne with its powerful roar and unpredictable moves sure to keep hunters on their toes. Shrieking Legiana, a newly discovered extreme variant of Legiana from Monster Hunter: World, is covered in a white frost which it uses to freeze the air around it and ferociously attack hunters.
The Monster Hunter: World base game is required for Iceborne and whilst players will be able to enjoy some of the gameplay options such as the Slinger and weapon updates right away, they must have completed the main story through Hunter Rank 16 in order to access the new Iceborne story and quests.
