The free update offers more challenging options for players to conquer including the ferocious fan-favorite Rajang, more tempered monsters, a whole new region for the end-game Guiding Lands area, and more. In an accompanying developer update video, Capcom also revealed additional post-launch updates planned for the remainder of the year as well as upcoming collaborations.
The Guiding Lands
As part of the first update, a brand new volcanic biome has been added to the Guiding Lands and becomes accessible once players have started the special assignment quest to battle the aforementioned Rajang. In addition to Rajang, new tempered monsters are also being added to challenge hunters – Tempered Gold Rathian and Tempered Silver Rathalos. As an added incentive to take on these expert level battles, materials gathered from the Guiding Lands can also be used to craft layered armor for some of the Monster Hunter: World gear for players that are fond of the aesthetics of the earlier gear. Additionally, this title update includes gameplay adjustments within the Guiding Lands based on player feedback. Players can visit the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne website for more details.
Your Room updates
December will continue with a new yet to be revealed monster and the return of Monster Hunter’s seasonal fests, which will be held in both Astera’s and Seliana’s Gathering Hub for all players to enjoy. Additionally, for PS4 players, the second round of an exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration will be available as part of this update to craft a full armor set fashioned after the Shield-Weaver armor in Horizon Zero Dawn, quests to craft new Palico equipment and upgrade the Stormslinger, plus a quest to craft the new Banuk armor set. There will also be quests to upgrade Aloy’s Bow and the Felyne Watcher equipment that were available in MH: World. More updates are planned for 2020 with information to be shared later.
