Monster Hunter World: Iceborne continues the series tradition of providing robust post-launch support for players. The end of 2019 is no exception, as the hunt intensifies with new collaborations and more free content coming soon. From 4pm PT on November 7, Iceborne console players will get access to event quests for the Raccoon City collaboration as well as the new equipment from the weapon design and Palico gear contest. PS4 players can look forward to exclusive free content starting November 21, as the first round of event quests get underway for the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration. This will be followed in December with a console update featuring a new monster, seasonal in-game events, and additional Horizon Zero Dawn content for PS4.
Raccoon City collaboration
The Raccoon City collaboration would not be complete without the iconic Tyrant. “The Handler’s Terrifying Tyrant” paid DLC costume transforms the normally spunky young woman into a trenchcoat-wearing, quest journal-wielding brute to join hunters on quests, prepare meals at camp, and even appear in cut-scenes.
Weapon Design and Palico Gear Contest Winners The Monster Hunter community is an extremely passionate and artistic group. The winning entries of the Iceborne weapon design and Palico gear contest were revealed last month at New York Comic-Con. The Black Eagle Charge Blade designed by “sheep” features black feathers which open up into a wing-like silhouette when changing from its sword form into axe mode. The Felyne Wiggler a+ Palico gear designed by “Zyralynn_art” offers a matching twist on the fan-favorite Wiggler gear, previously only available for hunters, and will now be available for their trusty companions. The winning weapon design and Palico gear can be crafted by Iceborne players via materials gathered from two new quests available from 4pm PT on November 7.

December 2019 Updates
For PS4 players, additional rounds of the exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration will become available in December, with even more free content featuring new event quests and themed gear for players to craft. Hunters will be able to build a full armor set fashioned after the Shield-Weaver armor in Horizon Zero Dawn and embark on new event quests to upgrade the Stormslinger weapon from the first round of quests in November. Additionally as part of the December content, hunters will be able to craft the new Banuk armor set and there will also be quests to upgrade Aloy’s Bow and the Felyne Watcher equipment that were available in Monster Hunter: World. More updates are planned for 2020 with information to be shared later.
