Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Announced!
- Capcom further propels this global brand with a massive expansion for its more than 10 million unit-selling, record-breaking flagship title -

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) has announced Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a massive expansion for Monster Hunter: World. The new content will be available for download in autumn 2019 for Playstation®4 and Xbox One. Details regarding the PC release will be shared in future announcements.

The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. The series has sparked a social phenomenon known as the "Monster Hunter Craze" by introducing a new kind of communication style for players through cooperative play focused on hunting monsters with their friends. Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the series has attracted a dedicated fan base, and overall grown into a mega-hit, with Monster Hunter: World, the latest title in the series, shipping more than 10 million units, and cumulative sales of the series exceeding 52 million units as of September 30, 2018.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be a content-rich, premium expansion featuring new quest ranks, moves, locales, monsters and gear in addition to a full narrative experience that continues on from the ending of Monster Hunter: World. The expansion, scheduled for release in autumn 2019, is currently in development and will maximize the cutting-edge technical expertise Capcom has refined over the course of the Monster Hunter series.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
