The Monster Hunter World expansion, Iceborne, has received several major free updates since its launch, and the next one will make some big additions. Update 5 will arrive on October 1st and a new trailer has been released to showcase the new monsters, outfits and events it brings to the game.
There are two new monsters introduced for this update: Fatalis, a traditional dragon-type creator, and icy “arch-tempered” Velkhana. You’ll be able to unlock new armor sets from both – two from Fatalis and one from Velkhana.
Another addition includes collaborative research from Universal Studios Japan, available worldwide. It’s interesting, as most of the game’s collaborations have been with other game franchises, but in a year where theme parks have been a lot harder to visit than usual, it makes some sense.
There is also a new Halloween themed event coming to the game called Seliana Fest. It will bring new armor sets to enjoy and some scary furnishings. There are other gear sets shown in the trailer above, including an armor set that makes your hunter look like they’re running around in their underwear and extremely buff.
This is the latest free major update, ending a long campaign of free stuff. Monster Hunter’s next game, Monster Hunter Rise, will arrive on Switch on March 26, 2021. Check out GameSpot’s pre-order guide.
