Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s latest trailer reveals yet another monster and the expansions pre-order bonus content.
Picking up right where the last trailer left off, Iceborne’s latest video shows us just what the Rathalos was so upset about when the hunter showed up. Apparently, Glavenus is set to return, and it’s not looking too pleased about it.
Then again, we doubt it’s possible for Glavenus to look like anything other than filled with murderous rage. Comes with having a giant sword for a tail.
Glavenus returns from Monster Hunter Generations, and it’s a mean brute. Imagine Anjanath, only covered in armored scales and with the aforementioned medieval weapon instead of a tail. The Anjanath’s muscly tail was bad enough--imagine getting slapped with this thing.
Speaking of Anjanath, a new subspecies is coming with Iceborne that will up the big firey T-Rex’s difficulty to the point where only Master Rank monster hunters can deal with it. Also, instead of being fire-based, Fulgur Anjanath uses electric attacks that are quicker and more dangerous than whatever fireballs the regular Anjanath could throw at you.
In addition, Ebony Odogaron is the goth cousin of Odogaron that uses dragon-based attacks that are (as with the Fulgur Anjanath) faster and further reaching.
Just like the last trailer we’re once again left on a cliffhanger. What could possibly have exploded that poor Uragaan? Could it be a subspecies of Bazelgeuse? Or possibly a different explosion-type monster?
Hoarfrost Reach isn’t entirely filled with terrifying monsters, though. It looks like your new hometown of Seliana will come equipped with a Gathering Hub that’s more like a spa than a banquet hall, complete with saunas and geothermal hot springs. Just watch out for those terrifying badger creatures. They don’t look like fun at all.
Finally, the latest trailer gives us some pre-order goodies. Those that pay for Iceborne early will get the Yukumo layered armor set which will make them look all ronin-y, while those that opt for the Digital Deluxe edition will get a more European-looking Silver Knight layered armor along with 3 gestures, 2 sticker sets, 1 face paint, 1 hairstyle, and 1 decor set for your room.
Iceborne arrives on September 6th for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release hopefully before Christmas.
