The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available on Xbox One. 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.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a paid expansion for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $40. The PC version will be coming at a later date. 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: Iceborne beginner's guide

Monster Hunter: World is available through Xbox Game Pass and doesn't include the Iceborne expansion. If you're unsure about the game, give it a go through the service. 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.
