Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be “continuously updated” with “several large free DLCs”

With Iceborne, the first major expansion for Capcom’s ARPG Monster Hunter World, on the way, players are no doubt keen to know just exactly what it’ll bring to the game. We already know that it’ll feature an arctic ecosystem, with a map that will rival the size of the base game, plus of course new monsters to master and a raft other new content.

Now, it looks like it’ll also feature several big pieces of DLC of its own – and they’ll be free.

In an interview with Gamersky (translated using Google) at 2019’s Hong Kong animation videogame festival, Monster Hunter series producer Sakamoto Ryusan and executive director Kaname Fujioka were asked about DLC plans for the game.

They said “the content update of Monster Hunter: World itself is now over, which means that there will be no new content in the future.”

However, “the new content update method of “Ice[borne]” will be the same as the main body, and the content will be continuously updated through several large free DLCs.” As you might expect, it looks like subsequent updates will continue to add new monsters for you to tackle – “yes, new monsters will be added later in the updated way.”

What these free DLC updates will include exactly is still a bit of a mystery for now, and it looks like the devs won’t be revealing all just yet – when asked about whether we’ll see other dragons not yet in the game, the devs seemed to suggest that they had more to disclose about future monsters later on.

Capcom’s new trademark could hint at the future of Monster Hunter: World

If you’re keen to get up to speed on what the expansion will hold, check out our write-up of all the latest Monster Hunter World: Iceborne details, and get ready for the PC release, which will hopefully happen this winter

Monster Hunter World: Iceborn Expansion

Monster Hunter World: Iceborn is a massive expansion, launching next year

Capcom has just issued a special developer update for Monster Hunter World. In a livestream that took place earlier this afternoon, the game’s producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto issued several announcements, the most important of which is an expansion featuring a brand-new biome – Monster Hunter World: Iceborn.

The trailer for Iceborn, which you can watch further, shows Rathalos escaping from a group of hunters before heading out over the sea, leaving its pursuers in its wake. As it flies away, it arrives at a new landmass, implying that players will be able to reach a brand-new section of the New World. As well as that new area, Iceborn will offer more story content, as well as plenty of new monsters to hunt and gear to earn.

In the update, which comes nearly a year after the game’s original release, Tsujimoto said the expansion is set to arrive in Autumn 2019 for console. A PC version is in the works, but Capcom didn’t have any further information to offer at time of writing. Further information is due in the spring.

The update also reveals that The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia is heading to the game as part of a special crossover event due to take place in early 2019, starring the The Witcher’s original voice actor. Given Geralt’s day-job, he seems a good fit for Monster Hunter: World, but it doesn’t look like he meant to arrive in quite the manner he did – a trailer shows the witcher falling through a portal into the New World.
