Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne has a new PC release date window

Worth the wait, PC gamers?
The Hoarfrost Reach looks stunning in the upcoming Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne expansion, and if you're hoping to play it on PC, you're going to have to wait a little longer.
Capcom has officially revealed that Iceborne will now launch in 'January 2020' instead of the initial 'Winter 2019' window that was mentioned in early reveals by the development team. This means that PC gamers will have to wait an extra four months to play Iceborne, which will host one of the largest ecosystems in Monster Hunter: World to date, as well as a new story and new monsters to kill and capture.
The console version of the main game launched a whole eight months before its PC counterpart, and quests and various events on the console version have often launched later on the PC version - so gamers expected a certain amount of delay.
Also this week, Capcom held a private party for streamers and press to get their hands on Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne for around five hours, which has revealed some of the other subspecies that will feature in the expansion - all of which can be found here. As well as new and existing monsters from the franchise heading to Iceborne, there are a number of cool new gameplay features arriving too.
For now, you can add Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne to your Fanatical Wishlist, so that you can keep an eye on the launch date nearer the time, as well as any special offers available. If you haven't played Monster Hunter: World yet, hey, there's plenty of time to do so before Iceborne launches!
