With Capcom announcing the release date for Monster Hunter World Iceborne, not only did we get a date, but we also got a ton of new info regarding new gameplay features, rank and more. Possibly one of the most important new stuff that got confirmed? It’s the list of the Monster Hunter World Iceborne new monsters!
In a press release, Capcom listed the Monster Hunter World Iceborne new monsters entering the game on September 6! Below, you’ll see gameplay of each along with the official monster description from Capcom. Note that this list includes the new monsters that can be seen in Hoarfrost Reach, as well as the new monsters that can be seen in familiar (old) places.
Mysterious Elder Dragon – Velkhana – An elder dragon with the power to freeze all. According to ancient legend, it can freely control the cold, and unleash an icy blast of breath.
Hoarsfrost Reach Monsters:
Banbaro – A monster with two giant horns, like a running brick wall. It charges at threats while digging its massive
horns in the ground, sometimes picking up entire trees in its path.
Beotodus – A piscine wyvern that uses the sharp fin on its head to cut through the frozen soil, swimming freely through
the snow. Can often be seen hurling snow at its prey using its leg fins.
New monsters that can be found in familiar locales
Nargacuga – A flying wyvern covered in pitch black fur. It is extremely agile, especially on the ground, moving with explosive bursts of speed.
Obviously, the big draw here is the new Elder Dragon. Hopefully, we’ll get gameplay of that one soon.
