While hunters around the world continue to experience the joys of Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a new and free update for the expansion has now gone live. The update will be adding some quality-of-life improvements and tweaks to the game, as well as the Rajang to hunt.
Making its return from Monster Hunter Freedom 2, the fearsome Rajang is a foe to be reckoned with. It can unleash a “rage mode” where its fur turns golden and it becomes even more relentless in its assault. “This ruthless beast offers a challenge for even the most experienced hunters … so it’s not a fight that should be taken lightly,” Capcom warns.
In order to face the beast, players must have already cleared Iceborne‘s main story and ventured into the Guiding Lands at least once. Once those requirements are met, you will be able to take on a new Special Assignment to hunt the Rajang.
In addition to the new monster, the update will allow players to make their room public for other players to enter. A variety of gameplay tweaks, aimed mostly at the Guiding Lands is also included in the update. Capcom has adjusted the rate of special tracks drop. According to the developer, “Unanalyzed special tracks are now easier to obtain, making it easier to lure out specific monsters and control your region levels.”
Hunters are also now guaranteed to get special tracks after capturing/carving a monster. As for region level fluctuations, Capcom added that players can “obtain different materials at each level, so adjustments have been made to how levels increase/decrease to make it easier to explore.”
More updates will be coming to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, starting with the crossover with Resident Evil 2 next month. PlayStation 4 players can also look forward to the exclusive Event Quest that is inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds.
