Title Update 4 is now live in
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
, adding new content to their expanded
action/RPG. This free patch adds two new monsters, a new seasonal event, along
with various other changes. The full
notes can be found here
along with the
recent video developer
on the topic. Here's an overview:
Title Update 4 is available
now and marks the return of Alatreon, the Blazing Black Dragon, in Monster
Hunter World: Iceborne. 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!
[Alatreon, the Symbol of Destruction]
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.
[Summer Seasonal Event - Sizzling Spice Fest]
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
