Now Playing: Monster Hunter World: Iceborne - Rajang Reveal Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the massive paid-expansion for the monster-slaying opus, is out in a few days on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Before then, however, Capcom has revealed the first post-launch free DLC monster for the upcoming add-on, and it's a very angry ape.

Anyone who played Monster Hunter Freedom 2 will probably be experiencing cold sweats right about now at the prospect of encountering Rajang again. The ape-like beast is incredibly strong and has the ability to emit lightning bolts from its mouth--as if the imposing horns on its head weren't frightening enough already. The reveal trailer above also hints at Rajang's signature Rage Mode, which turns the formidable monster's fur golden, sending it into a destructive furore.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne launches on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One with a PC version arriving next year. Rajang joins the fray at some point in October.

GameSpot has the lowdown on pre-order bonuses for the upcoming expansion, and you can currently pick up the base game for a mere $15 on Xbox One.
