Monster Hunter World: Iceborne receives its fourth free title update allowing hunters to seek out the elder dragon Alatreon and a Frostfang Barioth variant as well as take part in a new seasonal in-game event. Check out the video below to meet the new elder dragon Alatreon.
The Blazing Black Dragon Alatreon is a terrifying and dangerous beast that will even test the skills of A-list hunters. This monster has an unstable elemental nature, meaning he can change his elements at a whim. Players will need to adapt their tactics depending on whether he has entered the Dragon, Fire, or Ice elemental state and prepare for any number of devastating attacks. Should Alatreon use his powerful Escaton Judgement attack then only those who are causing damage using the correct element will be able to minimise the incoming shockwave.
Another fearsome beast is the chilling new monster variant Tempered Frostfang Barioth. This monster will be available to Iceborne players as part of a limited time event that arrives on 7th August. This Barioth variant breaths out freezing wind which freezes the ground.
Players overcoming these encounters can expect to be rewarded with materials that will allow them to forge the brand new top-tier Palico gear, weapons and armour which features new set bonus skills, and decorative pendants.
From 22nd July to 6th August players will be able to enjoy the new seasonal event, Sizzling Spice Fest. There will be a new Poogie costume, seasonal Palico gear, paid seasonal Handler costume, and a new snowman design, all of which can be gained by redeeming tickets gained from log-in bonuses, seasonal bounties and event quests.
Other new features of the update include:
- Hunters can make use of the Guiding Alchemy at the Elder Melder to create Special Tracks that can be used to draw out specific monsters.
- New pendant designs.
- A swath of new Paid DLC options for Your Room, including new monster figures, music options, and Lynian inspired décor.
- A number of new Card and Guild Card designs to help display their achievements.
