Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s latest update includes the Alatreon hunt


Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is no stranger to the delivery of high-end content whether for free or as part of an expansion. The latest update ushers in new content including Alatreon, Frostfang Barioth, and more.

Capcom has been rather surprising with how consistently they deliver content for their smash-hit title, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Their latest update is no exception to this rule as they’ve delivered plenty of new content including some seasonal content. Most of which has gone live today with some coming later this month.

The new update also sees some new in-game additions aside from hunts, including the use of new  Master Ranked layered armors. The new seasonal event that is available will ensure that almost all fans can jump in starting July 22nd through August 6th, 2020, as the entire Gathering Hub is transformed in order to celebrate the Sizzling Spice Fest.

The event will turn up the heat, offering new meaty meals at the canteen alongside carnival-inspired decorations, a new Poogie Costume, some seasonal Palico gear, and well, a chance to change up the Handler with a paid seasonal DLC outfit for her. There’s also a new snowman design, so prepared to change up Frosty as well while you’re at it.
