Soon after the expansion’s launch earlier this month, Capcom revealed that it has more Monster Hunter World: Iceborne content in the pipeline with its first major update teased for October.
However, during TGS 2019, the publisher has laid out its Iceborne roadmap which will continue into 2020.

As we already know, next month will usher in a new monster for hunters to go up against. The Rajang is a returning favourite that made its debut way back in Monster Hunter 2: an ogreish primate that can spew thunder from its maw when enraged.
November will see first Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s first crossover, the series once again teaming up with Sony’s Horizon: Zero Dawn. This second stop on the roadmap will feature a new event quest for hunters which no doubt takes place in Hoarfrost Reach given the crossover’s “Frozen Wilds” theme. Fans should expect new cosmetic items including another Aloy layered armour set (skin).
To round out the year, December will have its own festive seasonal events to participate in with even more Horizon content being funnelled into the expansion. Regardless of whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Capcom will be prematurely clogging up hunters’ chimneys with yet another brand new monster.
But wait, there’s more! Capcom also plans to celebrate the two year anniversary since Monster Hunter: World’s 2018 launch last January. There are no details as to what this celebration will entail though a new event quest doesn’t seem out of the question. Hopefully loyal Monster Hunter fans will also get a small hoard of gifts to keep.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne launched on September 6th, effortlessly scoring a 9/10 in our review. Here’s what Dom had to say:
Monster Hunter: World is deservedly Capcom’s most successful game to date, and the Iceborne expansion amplifies everything positive about it. More incredible monsters, new lands and a wealth of ways to upgrade your Hunter will have fans in rapture, while new players yet to experience the delights of monster hunting can rest assured that there’s never been a better time to join the hunt.
