Acidic Glavenus Shows Off Its Moves in New Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Clip
A new video from Capcom is giving hunters their first look at the Acidic Glavenus, one of the fiercest new beasts in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Glavenus, a monster with a sword-like tail that it can sharpen for extra damage, first appeared in Monster Hunter Generations. It will appear in Iceborne, but the new video focuses on a brand-new subspecies called the Acidic Glavenus.
As the video shows, the Acidic Glavenus is no less deadly when its tail is dull. At the SDCC panel revealed several new subspecies, Capcom revealed several new subspecies, they showed that the Acidic Glavenus builds up poison on its tail that debuffs a player if they get hit. When the tail gets sharpened, it no longer causes debuffs, but it attacks much faster with more damage. The video shows some lightning-fast strikes that are sure to give hunters a real test.
In the video, a hunter is seen fighting the Acidic Glavenus in the Rotten Vale. Capcom previously revealed that about half of the storyline of Iceborne takes place on the original game’s map and half in the new Hoarfrost Reach. It’s not clear correctly how monsters will be split up between the two zones or how often players will move back and forth.
The Acidic Glavenus isn’t the only new monster to walk the world in Iceborne. The game’s SDCC panel also showed off new designs for the Fulgur Anjanath and the Ebony Odogaron, but no video of those monsters has been released publicly yet. Capcom also teased even more new subspecies for the Pukei Pukei, Paolumu, and Tobi-Kadachi.
These new subspecies join a growing list of new monsters announced for the massive expansion. Capcom has also said that hunters will be taking on Banbaro, Beotodus, Nargacuga, Shrieking Legiana, Tigrex, and the elder dragon Vekhana.
Iceborne launches on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6, with a PC release scheduled for some time this winter.
