Monster Hunter: World will be heading into the snowy landscapes of Hoarfrost Reach when "Iceborne" arrives in September. If you can't wait until then to try out the new content, you'll be interested in the PlayStation exclusive beta for the expansion. PlayStation Plus members get their hands on the content as early as next week. Non-PS+ members don't miss out; they just have to wait a bit longer.
The beta will be a separate download and players are not required to own the game to have access to it. PlayStation Plus members will get an exclusive beta beginning on June 21st and ending on June 23rd. If you're not a PlayStation Plus member, you can join in the fun a week later, beginning on June 28th and ending on June 30th.
"Iceborne" continues the storyline from that of the main game. Players will once again team up with the Research Commission to explore a new undiscovered land. Hoarfrost Reach is the largest map in the game and is home to monsters players won't have seen before. To give you some idea of what to expect, Capcom has released a Handlers Guide to the area, where the Handler gives you a tour of all of the new features the expansion has to offer:
"Iceborne" is available for pre-order now before its release on September 6th. Players can purchase the expansion separately for US$39.99 / €39.99, or grab the Digital Deluxe version that includes the expansion and the "Deluxe Kit" with bonus cosmetic items. The latter is priced at US$49.99 / €49.99. Those who are new to the game can pre-order the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition instead, which includes a copy of the main game and the "Iceborne" expansion — this will be priced at US$59.99 / €59.99.
