Monster Hunter: World

 
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne revisiting its three big limited-time events this monthAug 7, 2020 - EurogamerMonster Hunter World's superb Iceborne expansion is poised to mark its first birthday in September, and Capcom is celebrating the occasion by offering a chance to revisit its three previous limited-time seasonal events - ideal for newcomers and anyone that didn't manage to hoover up all the related rewards first time around. Starting on August 21st, Iceborne players have a second chance to celebrate Monster Hunter World's Holiday Joy Fest. By completing its various limited-time quests, hunters can unlock the likes of the Oolong armour set, Lucky Crimson Tiger Pendant, and Shishi-mai Palico gear. There's also the Mad Scavenger Pickaxe (actually a Long Sword), the Duffel Penguin Mask, and a giant flappy scarf known as the Sealed Dragon Cloth. Briskness is required, however, as the event will only be sticking around for about a week, wrapping up on 3rd September.

This legendary Elder Dragon’s appearance is sure to challenge even the most seasoned Hunters… but it’s not all we have in store for this update. Summer is heating up with a lively seasonal event, and a new Variant has been discovered: Frostfang Barioth! Unlike any other monster known to the Guild, Alatreon has the unique ability to switch its elemental attributes at will! These elemental states—Fire Active, Ice Active, Dragon Active—will change Alatreon’s elemental attack powers as well as its weaknesses, so you’ll have to strategize your equipment loadouts with your teammates if you hope to survive this hunt. Speaking of survival… keep an eye out for Alatreon’s newly developed move: “Escaton Judgement.” Again, come prepared with elemental damage if you wish to stand a chance against this devastating new move. Naturally, equipment forged from Alatreon parts will properly reflect the Elder Dragon’s elemental-focused nature, with a brand new Set Bonus skill that will raise your elemental attack power as you raise your elemental defenses. NOTE: Before you can face the Special Assignment to hunt Alatreon, you must be MR 24 or higher and have completed at least the Safi’jiiva Recon Assignment. While you challenge the extremely powerful Alatreon, the Research Commission will be making preparations to celebrate the summer with a new seasonal event… the Sizzling Spice Fest! The theme this time is a bit wild, so expect to see lots of feathers, monster-themed gear and assorted meat dishes! This lively event will bring us new Event Quests, a refreshed take on the Snowman and various items to craft and collect: Armor Sets, Layered Armor, Weapon Pendants, Palico Gear, a Poogie Outfit and more! Sizzling Spice Fest will run from July 22 through August 6 UTC. A new Variant of Barioth has been discovered, and the Guild has named it Frostfang Barioth. This rugged flying wyvern has roamed and survived the most extreme conditions, and has developed powerful means of controlling the ice around it. Its breath attacks are now strong enough to freeze the ground and afflict Hunters with the frostbind status. Those that emerge victorious will be able to craft new Frostfang Barioth equipment, with a unique Set Bonus skill pairing. Equipping one armor piece will grant you the skill “Punishing Draw,” which boosts your attack power and gives Stun damage properties to draw attacks. And equipping three armor pieces will activate the “Slugger Secret,” which allows you to take the Slugger armor skill up to level 5 (Stun power +60%)! Frostfang Barioth will be roaming the Hoarfrost Reach for a limited time via the Event Quest “The Last White Knight,” which will debut from August 7 through August 19 (UTC). All Hunters MR 24 or higher are called upon to take on this new Variant. With this latest update, the Elder Melder has cooked up another quality of life i...Title Update 4Jul 3, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsTitle Update 4 releases on Thursday, July 9, 0:00 UTC, and will include new features and bug fixes! ■ New monster "Alatreon" has been added to the game. - New Alatreon hunter and Palico equipment have also been added! - Alatreon will be available after finishing the story of Iceborne and completing the Safi'jiiva recon assignment. ■ New variant monster "Frostfang Barioth" has been added to the game. - New Frostfang Barioth hunter and Palico equipment have also been added! - Frostfang Barioth will be available in a limited-time event quest, and appears as a tempered monster.

These two limited time Event Quests will challenge even the best Hunters in Seliana, but will yield some of the best rewards around. “The Eternal Gold Rush” will debut starting April 23rd 00:00 UTC (April 22nd 5:00pm PDT) and will take you back to the Caverns of El Dorado to confront the “Mother Goddess of Gold” Kulve Taroth for a final showdown. Unlike the Kulve Taroth Siege (High Rank), this will work as a standard Event Quest where you and up to three other Hunters will be tasked with slaying this magnificent Elder Dragon. Remember to work together and look out for some fiery new attacks that truly make this monster earn its Master Rank threat level. NOTE: before you can take on the Master Rank version of Kulve Taroth, you’ll need to have met the specific eligibility requirements for joining the High Rank Kulve Taroth Siege. Chances are most of you are already eligible, but just in case, the first quest steps are to speak with the Admiral in Astera and investigate golden tracks. Slay Kulve Taroth in this new quest, and you’ll get the dazzling Golden Kulve Pendant as well as new Master Rank grade materials. Take these to the Smithy to craft new Armor, Palico Gear, and finally, upgrade your High Rank appraised weapons. This Event Quest will not yield any new appraisal weapons, so if you’re looking to complete your collection, the Kulve Taroth Siege (High Rank) will also be available at the same time as “The Eternal Gold Rush”. And to sweeten the golden pot of rewards, we’ve increased the odds of rarer weapons being appraised from Incandescent Weapons. A new Arch-Tempered Elder Dragon has emerged to challenge the fiercest Hunters of the Fifth Fleet: Arch-Tempered Namielle. Those brave enough to hunt it should come prepared to be faced with stronger attacks, higher elemental affinity and incredible endurance. “The Distant Dark Tide” will be available from May 1st 00:00 UTC (April 30th 5:00pm PDT) as a limited time Event Quest. Arch-Tempered Namielle won’t go down easily, but those who manage this feat will be rewarded with the Arch-Tempered Namielle Shard weapon pendant as well as materials to craft the Namielle Tentacle γ+ Armor Set . The γ (Gamma) series provides the best of both α (Alpha) and β (Beta) sets by offering deeper customization options to prepare for what comes next. And if you’re looking to expand your Layered Armor wardrobe, item rewards from the Arch-Tempered Namielle quest can be used to craft the following layered sets: Artian armor, Black Belt armor, Guardian armor, Acrobat Earrings, and Showman Earrings. Best of luck to you, Hunters! Important: Matchmaking in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne requires players to have updated to the same version.

However, if there is an extreme case in which the updates cannot be released at the same time, we will let everyone know via official announcements. ■ Master rank Kulve Taroth quest added. - New master rank Kulve Taroth hunter and Palico equipment have also been added! (You can also obtain materials to upgrade Kulve Taroth weapons.) ■ Arch-tempered Namielle added to the game. - New hunter equipment is also available to craft using Arch-tempered Namielle materials.

To access these two new superpowered brutes, you'll first need to complete Iceborne's story and complete the special assignments that fully expand the Guiding Lands and investigate the mysterious Red Dragon. Following that, you'll be asked to speak with the Tracker, who will give you two additional special assignments: Furious Rajang and Raging Brachydios. These two monsters won't go down easily, but the rewards will be well worth the fight. The Furious Rajang armor has a fierce, primal style and the set bonus enhances a very appropriate skill called "Heroics" that grants you bonus attack power and defense rates if your health drops below a certain threshold—a burst of "furious" adrenaline that's bound to help in a pinch! The Raging Brachydios armor also comes with set bonuses that match the monster, empowering various explosive attacks. Its weapons radiate with style and feature the monster's signature 'active slime' look. Good luck, hunters—you'll need it! After a long day of hunting, kick back and relax in your room with all new paid DLC including various decor options and new background music options to play on the music player. The powerful new "Banishing Ball" item can be used in the Guiding Lands to drive any pesky large monster you'd like out of that expedition session. Expect the unexpected and pack a few of these on your next Guiding Lands run. Please note that only the quest leader can use the Banishing Ball. Go beyond the current upgrade limits for master rank armor sets! The new cap for armor upgrades will vary based on your set's rarity, but will allow for some to go all the way up to a whopping level 20 should you be upgrading set that is Rarity 12. Much like the layered armor system that allows you to keep the stats of your favorite set while giving it a fresh new look, we're also introducing a new system called "layered weapons" that lets hunters do the same for your weapon of choice! Please note that the "layered weapons" system will be rolled out across the next few game updates starting with game version 13.01.00 on April 9th, and more options will be added in the upcoming updates. A couple of changes have been made to the Steamworks this time around, including the ability to change the Steamworks' output, options to activate the "auto mode" after sending the Steamworks into Overdrive, and also allowing rewards to be collected on the round just before a Steamworks Overdrive. We're expanding the "Hunter Helper" system to cover even more players than ever before. In addition to getting rewards for helping newer hunters through low and high ranks, players can now receive rewards if you help master rank hunters who have a lower master rank than yourself. Master rank assignments may net you some Carved Feystones, while other master rank quests may reward you with a King Armor Sphere. - Many new pendants have been...Monster Hunter: World is Steam’s Biggest New Release of 2018 with Over 240k Concurrent Players OnlineAug 9, 2018 - GitHypMonster Hunter: World’s PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC reveal was one of the best moments of E3 2017. But Capcom crushed the hearts of PC gamers when they revealed the game would be coming to PC seven months after its console launch. Today, Monster Hunter: World finally released on Steam, and by the looks of it, PC gamers aren’t upset about the delay anymore. Launching just an hour ago on Steam, Monster Hunter: World already has over 240k concurrent players online; and with the weekend right around the corner, that number is expected to go up even further during prime hours. As it stands right now, MHW is currently ranked #4 on Steam's list of most played games, right behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and gaining traction with a gain of 53k players in its second hour. Even if the numbers were to not increase (which they will), Monster Hunter: World has already become Steam’s biggest new release of the year, easily doubling Realm Royale’s 105k player peak back in June 2018.
