Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Details Post-Launch Content With Console and PC Updates Synced in April 2020

Capcom revealed the post-launch updates for their action RPG Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, available now for PlayStation 4 Xbox One, and PC.

First off, the publisher announced that console and PC players will have their content synced by April 2020. This is an issue given that the PC version launched earlier this month, which means PC players will begin to receive the same events as console players. Updates for the PC version will begin to roll out in February beginning with free content that includes new monsters battles and gameplay features as well as limited events. On February 6, PC players will be able to hunt Rajang and explore the Volcanic Region in end-game Guiding Lands. Additionally, the Resident Evil event will find its way to PC along with various items found in the collaboration. Paid DLC options will also be available for cosmetic items.

Following the update, on March 12, players will be able to hun Stygian Zinogre and explore the Tundra Region. The update also includes additional weapon upgrades.

From February through March, console players will receive new limited-time event quests that increase their odds of encountering gold crown monsters, decoration, and Great Spiritvein Gems while maximizing their rank. An update within that time will bring two additional monster variants to Icoborne, with more details revealed later.

In April, PC and console players will begin to receive synced updates with content players beyond June 2020.

Picking up from the end of the storyline in Monster Hunter: World, Iceborne will have players join forces with the Research Commission once again to explore the undiscovered new land of Hoarfrost Reach. Following an unusual sighting of Legiana from the Ancient Forest, the team journeys across the waters to a new locale with a frigid climate covered in snow and ice. As pioneers, the group soon sets up a new base camp in Hoarfrost Reach called Seliana, which serves as a warm HQ with resources to prepare them for the challenging quests that await.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
