Monster Hunter World: Iceborne official screenshot of a frost dragon attacking our characters

[Update]: The PC version of Monster Hunter World - Iceborne will be coming in January 2020!

Well, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Capcom has now finally announced a release date for Monster Hunter: World's Iceborne expansion - September 6th. The bad news is that the PC version will once again play second fiddle to the console ones, and as such its release date will be at some point this winter.

In terms of content, the Iceborne expansion will bring with it a massive new region to explore, a variety of new and old monsters to hunt, new movesets and elemental combos for each weapon, as well as a couple of new gadgets to play around with. There will also be a new Master Rank to strive for, a brand new storyline that directly follows on from the original and revolves around a mysterious new Elder Dragon, and the list goes on.

While the details are obviously still lacking, especially when it comes to some of the new monsters, you can get a bit of a sneak peek through the recently posted developer preview. It's a bit of a lengthy video, so do make sure to jump around in order to get a good view of just what Iceborne has to offer. Have a look:

You can learn more about the Iceborne expansion, as well as Monster Hunter: World itself, by hopping over to the official website.

On a slightly different note, it's also worth mentioning that The Witcher 3's Geralt has now finally made his way to the PC version of Monster Hunter: World as a free update. There's a couple of new quests to complete, a bunch of new equipment to craft, as well as two new bosses to fight. So if you haven't already, do make sure to check that out as well!
