Capcom announced that the fourth major update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will arrive in early July. The publisher has confirmed via Twitter that the developers have resumed work, now that the coronavirus emergency has been lifted in Japan. This update was initially expected for the month of May. Unfortunately, the pandemic has delayed its exit as one can easily imagine.
Now that the update is back on track, let’s take a look at its content. The latter will add Alatreon, the fan-favorite monster, to the game’s already impressive bestiary. With the addition of the dreadful legendary dragon, players will be able to craft weapons and armor from its leftover materials. The clash will take place in the area where the Safi’jiiva was staying, that is to say in an enclosed area. Four hunters will have to fight tirelessly in one place.
Alatreon, which appeared for the first time in Monster Hunter Tri, was already giving a lot of trouble to experienced players. The developers promise us an even more tenacious beast in its new version for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Other content will be included in the update, as shown in the title roadmap for the coming months, but the developers have not specified anything at this time.
Since the release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the developers have regularly added free updates to the game. This includes adding classic monsters (and their variants) like the Storm Rajang, the Storm Brachydios, the Supreme Alpha Namielle, and more. On top of that, recent updates have added more weapon and armor skins, allowing players to dress in their favorite armor and hunt in style.
Other monsters will also be added to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne in future updates, as well as new festivals.
