A story trailer has been released for Monster Hunter World’s first expansion, Iceborne. This story sees the Research Commission head to a new landmass, one covered in snow and ice, in search of new discoveries and monsters. Iceborne will see Hunters given a new headquarters in the Hoarfrost Reach known as Seliana. Seliana will have all the same facilities as the headquarters players are used to, but laid out more efficiently. The headquarters will run off steam, which will be given automatically with the completion of every quest.
Hoarfrost Reach begins as a land encased in ice, but as the player explores more and more of the land will open up until they’re exploring an area larger than the original Monster Hunter World game. Iceborne will also include a number of new monsters, including Tigrex, Banbaro, and the giant ice dragon, Velkhana.
Of course, with new monsters must also come new weapons, and Iceborne comes with several, including the Light and Heavy Bowguns.
And also the Lance and Hunting Horn.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available for the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One on September 6th. It will become available for PC in the winter.
