Monster Hunter World was in my opinion, last year’s sleeper hit game. Monster Hunter World was so good that as a result it’s Capcom’s all time selling game. If you played this game then you know what the experience is like killing monsters, using a variety of weapons and traversing over various terrain killing these huge and troublesome beasts.
There had been some update DLC that added some new monsters to mix thus making the hunters come back but it wasn’t sustainable in terms of overall size of an update until now.
Monster Hunter: Iceborne is the newest update and it’s going to be packed with a bunch of new monsters in a new arctic tundra and the monsters there are not going to be pushovers. Capcom showed off some game footage at E3 and it was impressive to say the least. If you’ve been clamoring to grab your weapon and your crew and hunt some kick ass monsters then now is the time. According to Capcom’s latest press release which you can read below. There are going to be two betas. One exclusively for PS Plus users this Friday June 21st until June 24th and a general beta for all PS4 owners from June 28th until July 1st. You do not have to own the base game to play the beta and it’ll give you a glimpse into the newest area within Monster Hunter World. Once again , check out the official press release below for all the details.
As per Capcom:
The first Monster Hunter World: Iceborne beta will be available exclusively for PlayStation®Plus users from 3am PDT/11am BST on Friday, June 21 through 3am PDT/11am BST on Monday, June 24.

The beta offers players three quest choices, including the beginner-friendly Great Jagras hunt from Monster Hunter: World for newcomers, the brand new horned brute wyvern Banbaro for an intermediate challenge or returning series favorite Tigrex for the fiercest of hunters. The beta will let players test out all 14 weapon types in any of the three quests and the training area. The weapons include new features plus there are new Slinger tool options such as the Clutch Claw grapple mechanic. Upon completing each quest for the first time, hunters can earn a total of three item packs containing helpful consumable items that will be available to use in the full version of the Iceborne expansion when it releases. With more monsters and game info to be revealed, this is just the tip of the Iceborne!
