The Iceborne update for Monster Hunter: World will be the game’s only expansion. However, Capcom has promised further content once it has dropped, so don’t expect updates to dry up completely.
The news came during an interview with Game Informer, whereby the producer explained that the single DLC completed the game – in their opinion. And as a result, no further story expansions were required.
May we say how tidy that all sounds.
Ryozo Tsujimoto said:
“Iceborne basically completes World, so it will be the last expansion.” However, “We’re planning a lot of the updates for the future.”
So, in summary, its first expansion is also its last expansion, but smaller expansions are planned. Just like my waistline.
In addition, it has also been revealed that Iceborne’s content will be equally shared between new and old regions – no doubt helping to tie it altogether nicely into one completed package.
As for the smaller cosmetic changes, we can only assume these will take the form of additional weapons, skins, monsters and themed events, though we admit that’s a little vague. Unfortunately, that’s the best we can do for now. Or at least until Iceborne is thawed enough for download, which is scheduled for September 6th.
Are you still hunting monsters? Have you caught the one under your bed? You haven’t? Well, good luck sleeping tonight!
