Game company CAPCOM has announced that the fifth free title update for popular video game Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is now available.
The latest update for the Iceborne expansion has now been released to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. This new content will bring players back to the Old World to face off the mysterious legendary Black Dragon Fatalis. This will also introduce the Arch-Tempered Velkhana, the seasonal Fun Fright Festival, and more.
According to lore, there is no record of where the Black Dragon Fatalis came from or its connection to the blighted Castle Schrade that was destroyed in a calamity known only to legend. The Guild has now ordered the General to enlist the aid of the Research Commission to investigate the area. Players who are brave enough to join the expedition will need to prepare and if victorious, will gain top-tier armor, weapons, and Palico gear.
The Arch-Tempered limited-time event quest will start on Oct. 16. It will have extremely powerful frigid attacks. Gain victory and get top-quality materials for making the best Palico gear, weapons, and armor that features awesome bonus skills.
Starting October 16 through November 5, Seliana’s Lunar Terrace will be decorated like a graveyard bash for the new seasonal Fun Fright Festival. The whole Gathering Hub is also looking to join in on the monster mash, with tricks and treats such as a new spectral Poogie costume, monstrous seasonal Palico gear, a paid seasonal Handler costume, a new snowman design, and a teeth-rotting selection of sweets at the canteen. Hunters looking to scare up some fun can redeem tickets from log-in bonuses, seasonal bounties and event quests to obtain the new Demonlord α+ armor, and new layered armor such as the Skull Scarf, Kadachi Scarf, and more.
Hunters looking to get the most out of the Clutch Claw can now equip the new Clutch Claw Boost skill which allows them to wound monster parts more easily and create more frequent slinger ammo drops. Additionally, new melding options have been added including an expanded list of decorations to craft and the ability to upgrade charms. Ardent fashion hunters will now be able to craft Layered Armor of any set in the game, ensuring they are well dressed no matter the occasion. This update also includes another batch of whimsical new pendant designs, and new paid DLC for Your Room featuring giant skulls and bones. Finally, those interested in showcasing their progress throughout a year of Iceborne can choose from a number of new Squad Card and Guild Card designs to display their Hunter’s achievements.
