In preparation for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the game’s fifth and final free title update, Capcom has recently released a brand-new trailer to give you an idea about what to expect in the game.
Monster Hunter World is known to bring new monsters to the game every time there’s an update, and this is the case even now. Although, Iceborne will not only be introducing new enemies but additional content such as Halloween-themed gear as well.
The new trailer, which you can watch above or on the official Monster Hunter YouTube channel, features a whole bunch of new content in a fast-paced montage. The trailer will also keep you updated on a number of previous announcements that you may have missed.
Some of the information you’ll find in the trailer was already revealed either on the Capcom website or on Monster Hunter’s social media accounts. Nevertheless, the trailer is still informative and works as a great recap, too.
One of the major reveals you’ll find in the trailer is a section on the Seliana Fun Fright Fest, which is the game’s Halloween-themed event for this year. The event will begin on October 15 and will continue to run until November 5.
There are many reasons why this Halloween event is exciting, asides from the fact that seasonal festivals such as this bring back all of Monster Hunter World’s event quests for at least a limited time only.
Another reason is that it’s a great chance for you to earn new Halloween-themed armor. In addition to that, your Palico, Poogie, and Handler will also have outfits that follow the event’s theme, just like in other events of the past.
However, believe it or not, these exciting, new Halloween-content aren’t the most highly-anticipated part of the upcoming update. What fans are really looking forward to is Fatalis, the legendary monster that’s coming to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne this October 1.
Fatalis will make its way to the game alongside Velkhana, an arch-tempered elder dragon who is now stronger than ever. With Velkhana, you will be given a chance to obtain a special Gama gear set.
From what we can see so far, with the new monsters and the upcoming Halloween event, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is turning into an update that’s definitely one for the books. You’ll definitely enjoy all the challenges the update has to give you, especially Fatalis since it’s known to be the most difficult monster to deal with so far.
Naturally, the upcoming final update also brings with it bittersweet feelings. After all, it has included one of the most beloved monsters from the overall series to Monster Hunter World. On the other hand, this marks the beginning of the end for the title.
That being said, the franchise is still expanding and growing, so there are numerous other Monster Hunter titles you can try out. In fact, Capcom will be releasing Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2 on the Nintendo Switch next year.
Capcom hasn’t announced a Monster Hunter World sequel yet, but given how the company keeps churning out entries for the franchise, we won’t be surprised if they do.
