While more details about the content of Monster Hunter World: Iceborn aren’t expected until the spring of next year, we do know that it will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to start. More details about a PC version are still outstanding. The base Monster Hunter: World game will be required to play this new expansion.

Monster Hunter: World Appreciation Fest

In the meantime, the Kulve Taroth Siege, a special event quest which allows up to 16 players in groups of four each to team up towards a common goal, will return on December 20. This time, however, a tougher Arch Tempered version of this colossal monster which yields more powerful rewards awaits hunters.
