What you need to know

  • Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is now available on PC.
  • It adds a new snow-covered region and much more.
  • You'll need the base game if you want to access the expansion on its own.
  • You can purchase Monster Hunter: World and the Iceborne expansion for $40 at Green Man Gaming (opens in new tab).

The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available on PC. The game not only adds a massive new region, but there are plenty of monsters and other surprises thrown in there. It feels more like a sequel than an expansion.

You need to own the base game to take advantage of this pricing. If you want both games, then you can always check out the Master Edition on Amazon (opens in new tab).

Monster Hunter: World is also available through Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and doesn't include the Iceborne expansion. If you're unsure you want to purchase the title, you can always try it out on Xbox One. In my opinion, it's one of the best games of this generation despite the fact that the plot is somewhat convoluted and the voice acting is downright bizarre.

In Windows Central's review, Jordan Palmer wrote, "Monster Hunter World is a complex game, with Iceborne bumping up the challenge considerably, but with perseverance and practice, anyone can overcome this, and wind up addicted."
