Members of Monster Hunter: World’s development team, such as Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, will appear during the May 9th broadcast. For now, what specifically will be revealed in the broadcast remains under wraps. However, there’s a strong possibility the long-awaited Iceborn expansion will receive concrete details.
The paid expansion, which is due out this Fall, will be set after the events of the core experience and takes place in a new region. A few bits of information were teased about Iceborn during a livestream in December 2018. In addition to new story content and a fresh locale, Iceborn will introduce brand-new monsters, a quest rank, and more. A solid Fall release date has not yet been unveiled.
Since its launch in early 2018, Monster Hunter: World has consistently received new content to keep players regularly engaged. Some of the most recent additions also count as its most ambitious, as is the case with The Witcher 3 crossover event. Capcom’s and CD Projekt RED’s partnership to bring Geralt of Rivia into the world of Monster Hunter allowed players to track new monsters and earn a number of special items.
