The third free update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has arrived on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, adding in two exciting new monster variations, and a new seasonal event for Hunters to enjoy. The new update also introduces a new tool, the Banishing Ball, allowing players to instantly remove unwanted monsters while out hunting in the Guilding Lands.
The arrival of two new monsters in the latest update offers players the chance to tackle steep challenges by facing off against the Furious Rajang or the Raging Brachydios. Hunters who choose to do battle with these fervently furious creatures will receive new materials to use when forging weapons, items, armor featuring new set bonus skills, and top-tier Palico gear.
The new Seliana seasonal event, Full Bloom Fest, will bring Spring-themed updates including new gathering hub decorations, canteen meals, a new Poogie costume, seasonal Palico gear, paid seasonal Handler costume, and guild cards. Arriving on April 8th, after the new update arrives for players on PC, the Full Bloom Fest will also mark the start of simultaneous content updates across all available platforms.
Future updates for Iceborne are expected to hit in early April, bringing new monsters like the Master Rank glimmering Kulve Taroth and Arch-Tempered Namielle, as well as the calamitous Altareon, which will be arriving in the New World.
