Plus your first look at the new gathering hub.
Monster Hunter World Iceborne

A new trailer and developer update video came out today for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The latest from Capcom offers an overview of the new subspecies variation of monsters. We also get our first look at the new gathering hub in Seliana. Of course, additional gameplay improvements and additions are also shown off.

Subspecies monsters are new "extreme" and "twisted variations" of existing monsters. They will increase the difficulty of hunts and will require master-level skills to be defeated. This trailer shows just two of the variants that await players in Iceborne. These variants are Fulgur Anjanath, a big lighting based wyvern, and Ebony Odogaron, a big dragon elemental wyvern. The trailer also shows off a fiery Glavenus and its big sweep attacks.

More information on the new Seliana base in Hoarfrost Reach can be read below. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is slated to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2019. A PC release will follow this Winter.

As part of the cozy new Seliana home base in Hoarfrost Reach, a streamlined Gathering Hub offers a warm welcome for hunting parties with more centralized facilities and features. Built around an interactive hot spring, hunters and Palicoes can conveniently manage all the pre-hunt necessities in close proximity such as the Smithy to craft gear, resource center to manage bounties or botanical research to harvest items. “My Room” is also accessible and features new personalization options such as furniture, décor, and colors, with a post-launch update planned to allow other players to visit each other’s spaces.

Further gameplay options offer additional flexibility for multiplayer hunting parties. A series-first scaling balanced difficulty which will adapt for a two-player team if others have dropped out or if a duo sets out to tackle a quest with their Palicoes in tow. The furry sidekicks will also get upgraded gadgets and new options such as theShieldspire Stooge, a mobile decoy that draws a monster’s attention away from the player, the Meowcano, a giant jar that shoots out fireballs at enemies, and an enhanced Vigorwasp that can revive players immediately back into battle if they faint. New Squad Cards featuring info on the respective team can be sent to invite others to join the group, similar to how Guild Cards for each hunter can be traded individually. Sub-leaders have been added for Squad teams and can share duties on recruiting and accepting team requests.
