Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s first update will include new region

Things are heating up in the Guiding Lands

While fans of Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion are already prepping their gear to take on the fearsome Rajang, they might want to check that their atlas is up to date, as the expansion’s first major update – coming October 10 – will also include a brand new region.

Tucked away in the Guiding Lands, this new area is volcanic in nature, providing a little warmth and heat when compared to more chilly areas such as Hoarfrost Ridge. Given the nose-diving temperatures here in Blighty, this toasty new area is arriving not a moment too soon. Unfortunately, there are no images of these new plains as of yet.

The update, alongside Rajang and the new region, will also let you invite other players into your room, where you can play music and show off your wares via an all-new equipment display option. So if you ever wanted to make your fellow hunters insanely jealous with all your sweet loot, now you can, you awful person.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available now on PS4 and Xbox One, a PC port of the expansion is coming in January.
