[Update #2]: Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's latest preview shows of the vast majority of monsters we'll get to fight against, and unsurprisingly, they're all pretty cool!

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

While Monster Hunter: World certainly has a story, I wouldn't exactly call it an important part of the gameplay. It's mostly just there to slowly guide you through all of the various monsters, as well as to showcase which ones you should really be worried about!

With that in mind, you shouldn't too surprised to hear that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's story trailer has continued that trend by mostly being a showcase of the interesting new locations and monsters we'll get to fight. Have a look, it's quite an interesting one:

I haven't played any of the previous Monster Hunter games so I can't tell you much about the new monsters, but what I can tell you is that you can expect Monster Hunter: World's Iceborne expansion to arrive this September 6th on consoles. As for the PC version, I'm afraid we'll once again have to wait a while, this time around until some point in winter.

Once more previews start showing up I'll make sure to let you know as I'm quite curious myself, but until then you can read a little bit more about Monster Hunter World: Iceborne over at the official website.
