The publisher also updated the sales figures for Monster Hunter World, now up to 13.1 million units shipped, while cumulative Monster Hunter franchise sales now exceed 58 million units.
In his review, Kai highlighted the many positives of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the only expansion scheduled for Monster Hunter World.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is one of the meatiest expansions that’s come to the series to date. While it doesn’t have a G or other letter signifying its importance in the name, Iceborne is as close to the complete experience that players will see for Monster Hunter World. Nigh all of the new content is geared towards experienced players and keep giving them a reason to return to Astera or venture out to Seliana with friends in search of danger and glory. The refinements and upgrades to the combat offer players more versatility in their builds and finally give charge blade users a reason to focus on more than just raw attack. Iceborne has already captured my attention greater than the base game, and while the fights are far more challenging than what I played last year, they’re some of the most rewarding. If you can only pick one RPG in September to dedicate the next couple hundred hours of your life, perhaps you should pick one that’s well done.
Iceborne will launch January 2020 for PC, too.
