Capcom released a new trailer today revealing “shocking” new details for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the highly anticipated massive expansion to Capcom’s best-selling Monster Hunter: World. The video reveals the return of the fan-favorite thunder wolf wyvern, Zinogre, and includes a new look at the Elder Dragon Namielle, which dispenses powerful water-based attacks. Additionally, the latest trailer is jam-packed with footage of every new, returning fan-favorite, Elder Dragon, subspecies, and variant monster that has been revealed (thus far) for Iceborne.
Zinogre is the latest monster added to the massive expansion’s roster, ready to challenge hunters with its electrifying attacks. Players will need to bring their Master Rank skills and use extreme caution when Zinogre activates its supercharged state in order to successfully take down this thunderous beast. The trailer also offers the first detailed look at Namielle, an all-new Elder Dragon who has the power to summon water at will and unleash high pressure attacks onto unsuspecting hunters. Players should proceed with caution and not underestimate the bright, multi-colored appearance of this second new Elder Dragon that’s been discovered in Iceborne. Hunters have a collection of new monsters and subspecies to look forward to when the massive expansion releases – and there are still more to be revealed!
Ahead of the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne massive expansion’s global console release on September 6, a reminder that hunters have a chance to try the game in the upcoming beta sessions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne PlayStation 4 beta will be available for all PS4 users from 12:01am PDT on Friday, August 30 through 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, September 1. Following that, a beta for Xbox One will be available from 12:01am PDT on Monday, September 2 through 11:59pm PDT on Wednesday, September 4.
