Now that Monster Hunter World's Iceborne expansion is out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Capcom has announced what's coming to the action-RPG, revealing a roadmap that leads all the way into next year.

The official Monster Hunter Twitter account shared a sneak peek of a few updates headed to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. October will introduce a new monster, Rajang, and additional updates to your room. November brings a new PlayStation 4-exclusive Event Quest inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds. December comes with two more Frozen Wilds quests on PS4, as well as a new unannounced monster and a season event. 2020 marks Monster Hunter World's two-year anniversary, with "more title updates on the way."

Capcom packaged the Iceborne expansion in a new edition of Monster Hunter World. The bundle, called Master Edition, features all existing content along with the Iceborne expansion and retails for $60 USD. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne hit a big milestone in its first week, shipping 2.5 million units. Despite currently being for PS4 and Xbox One, Iceborne is expected to launch on Steam sometime in January 2020.

In our Monster Hunter World: Iceborne review, we said, "There's no more fussing about with new systems or worrying about ruffling the feathers of hardcore fans with a direction change in the series; those teething problems have already come and gone. Iceborne is a confident step into the future of the franchise, and it's hard not to think about what might come next."
