Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Will Get Its Fourth Title Update Soon, Here's When

The free fourth title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was previously delayed due to the coronavirus crisis.


Back in late April, Capcom announced that the free fourth title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was indefinitely delayed due to production difficulties caused by the coronavirus crisis. Now, the publisher says that the update will come in early July, with a firm release date coming soon.

This update was originally scheduled for May and will introduce the fan-favorite black dragon Alatreon, along with his attendant weapons and armor. There's no word on future content besides the promise of more monsters later in the summer, as the content roadmap provided by Capcom in late April ends with the fourth title update.
