Intervening at a video game event held in Hong Kong to discuss Monster Hunter World, producer Sakamoto Ryusan and executive director Kaname Fujioka explained what strategies they intend to pursue to actively support the Iceborne expansion.
Asked about the subject by the spectators of the fair, the two Capcom executives reiterated that “there will be no new ‘major’ content after Iceborne, this kind of updates for Monster Hunter World will end with the next DLC”.
According to what is illustrated by Ryusan and Fujioka (with statements reported and translated by colleagues from PCGamesN), however, “the treatment that we will reserve for Iceborne will be the same as for the main adventure, therefore we will continue to update it through numerous DLCs that will be free and particularly rich in content. Obviously, there will also be new monsters in these free updates. “
It, therefore, seems that the leaders of Capcom are willing to support for a long time what, for all intents and purposes, represents the most important video game (or at least the one with the greatest commercial success ) launched by the Japanese giant over the past few years. In any case, Monster Hunter World Iceborne will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th: the PC version, on the other hand, will arrive on January 2020, as recently announced by the MHW developers themselves.
