Story Mode

During an interview with Game Informer, one of Monster Hunter's producer Ryozo Tsujimoto noted "Iceborne basically completes World, so it will be the last expansion."

Now, although this may bum out some fans, this does not mean the series is going to conclude after Iceborn, we will just have to wait what free updates we will get in the future. 

 

Hoarfrost Reach

Hoarfrost Reach is the new area that Iceborn is set to be played in, and as you can tell by the name of the expansion pack this new area is going to be full of snow and ice-covered locations.

Capcom developers have claimed that every point of this new land is going to be searchable and we are sure to run into some insane monsters buried in the snow. What will you find in Hoarfrost Reach? 

Hot Springs

One of the newest features coming along with the Iceborn expansion pack is the usage of Hot Springs as gathering places.

These areas will be used as a central hub for all your exploration tasks essentially, a commonplace to regain some stamina and check on quests also. 

Dynamic Difficulty 

This new health bar/difficulty rating will work hand in hand for online lobbies, this will be a new setting that will adjust the monster's health based on whether or not a player joins or leaves a lobby.

Should a player leave the lobby the monster's health will adjust to scale to the rest of the players. 

 

New Monsters

Perhaps the biggest draw to the newest expansion pack, there are a lot of new monsters coming to the Iceborn DLC. We'll take you through all the newest ones below!
