Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will feature many new monsters to fight, but Capcom has just revealed the fiercest foe of them all. At Gamescom’s opening night, Capcom debuted a brand new trailer for the ambitious Monster Hunter expansion. Along with new gameplay and story footage, the video revealed an all-new Elder Dragon, Velkhana.
As the Elder Dragon, the icy Velkhana will be the most powerful monster to face in Iceborne. As showcased in the trailer, Velkhana will attack with its long spiked tail, as well as with a variety of powerful ranged ice attacks. The trailer displays the fight with Velkhana taking place in a few different environments, suggesting that players’ clash with the Elder Dragon will be long and wide-ranging. See all this and more in the trailer attached below.
Monsters aren’t the only things that Iceborne will add to the base Monster Hunter experience. This huge DLC pack will also come with an expansive list of changes and improvements, such as a new hub area, improved multiplayer functionality, and a handful of other quality-of-life enhancements. Read more about them in our previous reporting.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will release for PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, with a PC version to follow later this winter.
