Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is the highly anticipated massive expansion to Monster Hunter: World, the best-selling Capcom title of all time with more than 12 million units shipped worldwide adding to the series total of more than 53 million units to date. This gargantuan follow-up rivals the gameplay volume from the original release and features a new icy setting, storyline, monsters, gameplay options, and more. The game's all-new story picks up after Monster Hunter: World and whisks hunters away to the newly discovered chilly locale that, once fully explored, becomes the largest region in World so far.
The new locale is home to several new and returning monsters ready to challenge hunters throughout their expeditions and raises the stakes with the added higher difficulty Master Rank. Iceborne continues the skill-based progression and robust crafting system found in World and expands that with several new gameplay features that broaden the player's combat repertoire. All this leads to the ultimate hunter test against the mysterious new flagship monster, Velkhana.
You’ll not only be entertained by Monster Hunter World: Iceborne for hours, but you will be in awe of its complex systems, and how they align so well to create an unforgettable expansion to an already fantastic game.
The Iceborne expansion has finally come to Monster Hunter World for PC gamers, bringing a huge roster of new beasties to best and a ton of quality of life improvements. Was it worth the wait? You bet your bottom zenny it was.
The PC version, provided one has fairly powerful hardware, benefits from increased fluidity and a greater level of detail compared to the console counterparts: those who have waited for the arrival of this edition can therefore breathe a sigh of relief.
Iceborne already proved itself to be a spectacular expansion, but the PC release is even better with improved keyboard/mouse controls, up to 4K 60fps, and much more.
A solid port, that gains a lot from it's new platform and might grow exponentially faster thanks to the modding community. Pity the balancing updates aren't there yet, but they'll come in a few weeks, and the new monsters with them.
With Iceborne Capcom not only opens a new everfrost hunting area, but improves the game overall.
Iceborne is absolutely a worthy addition to Monster Hunter World, but the PC version still needs some touching up. This is definitely a "your mileage will vary" situation, so proceed with caution if you just can't wait for patches.
