Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Finally Now Available On PC
I wouldn’t be surprised if Monster Hunter World: Iceborne goes down alongside Red Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge as one of the best expansion packs of all time. The DLC adds so much content that it might as well be its own game. I said as much in my Best of 2019 list, where I gave Iceborne the Best Expansion award. Unfortunately, the joys of Iceborne have so far only been accessible to PS4 and Xbox One gamers. As of today, the PC crowd joins them in the icy sun.
If you’re not familiar with the expansion, I highly advise you to check out the Steam store page There is so much new content here, that it’s impossible to describe. It’s only one new zone, but that zone is so packed with stuff that it’s as much content as the base game. Alongside the new monsters and areas is a slew of tweaks to the base game. There’s a new grappling claw that can be used to mount monsters, new moves for each of the 14 weapons, and adorable rideable monsters to help you get around. Overall, the game has been streamlined to allow you to access the DLC content much quicker. Which is nice, since Iceborne can’t be accessed until you unlock Master Rank.
There are two editions of Iceborne available. The expansion is $40, and well worth the asking price. You can also get the Deluxe edition for $50, which comes with some cosmetic stuff. None of these cosmetics are additional Palico costumes, so you might want to pass until Capcom fixes this horrible oversight. If you’re still on the fence, check out Jesse’s review where he gave it a perfect score. And this is from a guy that gave Fallen Order a 2.5/5.
