Following the fresh news and first decent gameplay footage of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne that came out of Sony’s State of Play stream last week, a Senior UK and Europe PR representative for Capcom has now revealed that the new Iceborne expansion content size “will rival the original release”. Better start hunting for those bytes to free up on your hard drives now, then.

With the minimum requirements for the basegame on Steam needing 30GB of free disk space, we can expect Iceborne, the game’s first major expansion, to be a pretty big deal. We already know that it will feature its own complete story, picking up after the events of the hugely-successful Monster Hunter: World with a brand-new arctic environment, as well as monsters to hunt, and armour and weapons to forge, within it.

Though no release date for the PC version has yet been announced, it is expected to drop in Winter 2019, hopefully hot on the heels of the September 9th release date announced for the console versions.

I guess they weren’t kidding when the kept calling it a “massive expansion”.

I just got back into it on PS4, I'm level 83 and I've done pretty much everything that isn't tempered. If you're on PS4 I can help ya. I've hit my own wall as I don't really know how to progress. I assume I'm just supposed to do investigations but not sure if I'm missing something.

Tempered stuff is weird since you can only get it via investigations, and you can only get those investigations by finding tempered tracks. Best strat is to match into other people's tempered hunts online and stack up your own that way.

There are some thresholds for a couple of final final endgame quests that involve beating certain amounts of tempered monsters at each threat level- it's probably simplest to look them up on the wiki if you want to shoot for them since there's no real indication of how far away they are.

cool thanks but im on Steam!

tbh i havent played too much, just 46 hours, but it's the kind of game i want to just enjoy playing off and on for years. the level design, while hella confusing at times, is lush and gorgeous and just love looting through these really cool alien jungles.

playing through cool winter worlds this winter sounds pretty rad, i will probably pick this up.

It'll be nice if Capcom will fix the HDR for the console versions. =)

Day 1 anyway!

Hope they vary the weapon models more this time. At its core, there were really only a handful of design "trees" in World. It's one of my biggest complaints, especially compared to the wacky and fun designs we got in past monster hunters.
