Monster Hunter: World Iceborne Gets New Betas
Capcom has announced the dates for new beta periods for Monster Hunter: World‘s upcoming Iceborne expansion. A PlayStation 4 beta will start at 12:01am PDT on Friday, August 30, and end at 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, September 1. An Xbox One beta will follow, starting at 12:01am PDT on Monday, September 2, and ending at 11:59pm PDT on Wednesday, September 4. The beta will not require that players own Monster Hunter: World and will let players try out all fourteen weapon types across four quests, including a first chance to face off against Iceborne‘s flagship Elder Dragon Velkhana, and access a training area.
Iceborne takes players to the frozen region of Hoarfrost Reach. In addition to the new area, Iceborne will include higher-difficulty Master Rank quests, new foes, and new abilities and tactical options. The expansion will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2019, with a PC release to follow sometime in the winter.
