A new, pre-E3 2019 Monster Hunter World Iceborne trailer is all about the story the upcoming expansion will bring.
“Picking up from the end of the storyline in Monster Hunter: World, Iceborne has players joining forces with the Research Commission once again to explore the undiscovered new land of Hoarfrost Reach, which will be the largest map in the game,” Capcom said in a press release that accompanied the trailer.
“Following an unusual sighting of Legiana from the Ancient Forest, the team journeys across the waters to a new locale with a frigid climate covered in snow and ice. As pioneers, the group soon sets up a new base camp in Hoarfrost Reach called Seliana, which serves as a warm haven with resources to prepare them for the challenging quests that await.”
You can take a look at the expansion’s new headquarters in the trailer below.
We’re likely to hear more of Monster Hunter World at the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference. For now, we know that the Slinger and weapon upgrades will be immediately available to all players of the base game, though players will need to be Hunter Rank 16 to access Iceborne‘s new quests.
Monster Hunter World is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
