Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is hosting a beta for players to participate in and see what all the fuss is about. The game was largely a success for Capcom so it's no wonder that the studio would want to capitalize on that interest. Ahead of the beta on Seotember 2, Xbox One players can now preload it through the Microsoft Store.
From its store listing, the beta seems to come in at around 7GB. It will be available from September 2 until September 5. It's an open beta so you don't need to have pre-ordered the expansion.
The beta is free to preload through the Microsoft Store. The expansion itself will cost $40. It seems like a steep price for D;C, but remember that it brings a significant amount of content. Players purchasing Iceborne will not be able to access the DLC until they have completed the game's main campaign and reached Hunter level 16.
