Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Comes to PS4 September 6, New Details

Watch the trailer from State of Play for a first look at some new monsters... and gear that will help you conquer them.

First of all, I’d like to say thank you to all of our hunters who played Monster Hunter: World. It’s been over a year since the game arrived on PS4. Last December, we announced that Iceborne, a massive expansion for Monster Hunter World will be arriving this autumn! Finally, we’re pleased to give players the first look at our new trailer!

We’re also excited to reveal that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is releasing worldwide on PS4 on September 6, 2019!

As seen in the trailer, the Hoarfrost Reach is the new locale featured in Iceborne. This glacial area will feature its own harsh ecosystem. It’s a little cold out there, so you’re definitely going to want to stock up on Hot Drinks!

Here you’ll face off against the dynamic stampeding Banbaro and the snow-plowing Beotodus who inhabit this area. Fan-favorite monsters from previous entries in the Monster Hunter series are also making their return: One of them is Nargacuga, a nimble foe whom I’m sure gave many hunters headaches back in the day.

Also look out for the icy elder dragon, Velkhana. Not too much is known about this monster right now, but it is the focal point of the new story in Iceborne, so keep your eyes on it in the coming months.

These aren’t the only monsters coming to Iceborne, however. We have a variety of brand-new monsters and fan favorites returning! I wonder whose roar was teased at the end of the new trailer…!?

Luckily, your hunter has learned a few new actions to help you combat these tough monsters.

The Clutch Claw now allows you to grapple onto monsters and perform feats in a way you never could before, and each weapon type has gained new attack moves and combos with the Slinger. Customized parts have also gotten an upgrade, increasing the breadth of your actions.

That’s all the info we currently have to share on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne for the time being, but we’ll have more to share at E3 this year! Stay with us for more updates!

Happy Hunting!

  • Can’t wait, Hopefully plenty of new trophies as well.

  • Wonder how much it’ll cost.

  • This game seriously needs crossplay between PS4 and Steam. Capcom already has their Capcom ID system for Street Fighter 5 crossplay between PS4 and Steam and it works perfectly fine, i use it all the time with my Steam friends who will never play on consoles. I do play mainly on consoles but i’m getting tired of buying the same game twice just to play with my real life friends.

    Sony, let Capcom bring both versions (PS4 and PC) to the same update version and add crossplay, please.

    • There is absolutely 0 interest in playing this game with PC players who use mods to cheat. (For example buying augmentations for in game money.)

      I love the idea of cross-play between platforms. I’m 100% against it for this game though. I want my hunting experience to be pure.

    • I agree with kemikalz

      Even though SF5 has cross play and it works, mods or no mods, the PS4 and game would run better, faster, more smooth, and still wouldn’t have to take the risk of the game being exploited or load times extended due to mods/hacks if server connections for matches were solely PS4.

      So, MHW crossplay? No thank you.

  • Totally sold on this already. Absolutely love the look of the new environment.

  • ERGOPROXY-DECAY

    So this game will separate the player base from the original game? It should had been a big dlc, expansion.

  • BobbyTheFlame

    Ehh just get Dauntless it’s a new breath of fresh air it’s coming out this Tuesday and it’s free plus I’m pretty sure people are tired of MHW by now honestly.

    • Hi, over 500 hours on mhw over here, I haven’t gotten tired of it. I played dauntless for an hour though, I want my hour back for mhw.
