Rajang is naturally the centerpiece for today’s update! The fan-favourite monster makes a thunderous return, and will prove a challenge even to the most seasoned hunter! It will turn golden when enraged, and it’ll be able to unleash even more lethal attacks! Those arms will be swinging hard! If you can take it down, you’ll be getting incredible equipment, like a golden and black palette armour with high offensive skills.
After you’re done with Iceborne‘s story, you can further your journey into the end-game in the Guiding Lands. Explore even more biomes and landscapes, and tackle even more challenges, monsters for amazing rewards! Investigate and hunt down the monsters, and gradually increase the Region Level of a location. Naturally, the difficulty, and corresponding rewards will increase! Get materials to customize your weapons functions and appearances. Additionally, monsters like Zinogre only appear at a certain Region Level in the Guiding Lands.
The first update will see a brand new volcanic biome in the Guiding Lands. Players can access it by starting a special assignment quest to battle Rajang. Tempered monsters are also added for more challenge; face Tempered Gold Rathian and Tempered Silver Rathalos! Materials from the Guiding Lands can be crafted into layered armour, for players who are fond of the aesthetics of earlier gear. Gameplay adjustments based on player feedback is included in the Guiding Lands. More details are available on the official website.
The update brings the ability to visit other players’ rooms. See how your fellow hunters have decorated their living spaces! For decorator enthusiasts, paid DLC options have been added.
More updates will be coming soon! The next free update is planned for November. Enjoy a collaboration with popular survival horror icons Leon, Claire and Tyrant. Special quests to craft the winning entries of the weapon and Palico equipment design will be in too!
Playstation 4 players will be getting exclusive access to the first round of the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration. Players will be able to craft a Light Bowgun designed like Aloy’s Stormslinger.
A new monster will be arriving in December. Monster Hunter‘s seasonal festivities will also return for both Astera’s and Seliana’s Gathering Hub. The second part of the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration will open for Playstation 4 players, as well. Craft a full armour set fashioned after the Horizon Zero Dawn Shield-Weaver armour, new Palico equipment and get Stormslinger upgrades! There will be a new quest for crafting the Banuk armour set. Additional quests to upgrade Aloy’s Bow and Felyne Watcher equipment from MH: World will be available.
