What’s new with Monster Hunter: World
Rage against Rajang
Rajang is really challenging! This is a classic returning monster, debuted in MH2 (Japan only) and Monster Hunter Freedom 2 (western debut) and it’s been known as a painful challenge ever since. Rajang is not an Elder Dragon, but it’s known to stand among that monster tier in terms of power and brute strength.
The frozen frontier awaits
The Iceborne expansion adds a whole new story as well as new monsters, gear, locales and other updates. To access Iceborne content, you will need Monster Hunter: World and you will need to complete the main story before venturing out on new Master Rank quests. Your hunter and progress carry over into Iceborne. The expansion is available as a digital upgrade for World owners, while new players can purchase the Master Edition, which includes both World and the Iceborne expansion.BUY NOW
A new world
Take on the role of a hunter venturing into a new continent where you track down and slay ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles. Strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to your advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present.
Team up with up to three other hunters and cooperate to take down any threat. With new online drop-in functionality, you can start your quests solo and simply hail for assistance during quests when your targets are too daunting to take on single-handedly.
Monster Hunter: World builds upon a long legacy of incredibly satisfying gameplay systems, ranging from the purposeful combat mechanics of each weapon type to the crafting of gear based on your fallen foes to prepare for even bigger challenges.
Monster Hunter: World introduces a living, breathing ecosystem in which players take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing terrain. Venture on quests alone or with up to three hunters in a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system which allows cross-region cooperative play between Japan and the west, uniting the player base for the first time ever. Monster Hunter: World has sold more than 13 million copies worldwide and now welcomes its massive expansion, Iceborne. This huge update brings even more quests, monsters and gear to the game.
