Due to its late release on PC, Monster Hunter World Iceborne is lagging behind the console version in terms of updates. That is soon to change, however, as Capcom announced today that both PC and console versions of the game will receive title update 3 by April 2020, finally syncing up all platforms.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Roadmap
Capcom revealed the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne 2020 roadmap today via Twitter. According to the roadmap, PC players can expect the first and second title updates by February 6th and March 12th, respectively. These updates will include Rajang, Stygian Zinogre, and the Safi’jiiva. In the meantime, the console version of the game will receive special event quests and the third title update.
Kicking things off, the Grand Appreciation Fest will run from January 24th to February 13th. This seasonal event will be happening for both Astera and Seliana, and players will have the chance to complete event quests to earn unique alien-themed armor. By April, both the console and PC version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be synced up. During this month, Capcom will also add the Arch-Tempered and Master Rank for all versions of existing monsters.
Beyond the title update sync, Capcom promises the “return of a fan-favorite monster.” Furthermore, the rest of the year will bring lots of new updates. More details about the updates will be revealed later in the year.
The full 2020 schedule for Monster Hunter World Iceborne is as follows:
Title Update 1 – February 6th
- Guiding Lands Volcanic Region
- Raccoon City Collaboration
- Holiday Joy Fest
Title Update 2 – March 12th
- Stygian Zinogre
- Guiding Lands Tundra Region
Title Update 3 – April
- Arch-tempered and Master Rank versions of available monsters
- Two new variants of monsters
All things considered, Capcom has a lot of things planned for Monster Hunter World. Although Iceborne had a pretty rough launch on PC, the developers quickly addressed all issues with a swift patch.
Monster Hunter World is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
