<em>Monster Hunter World: Iceborn<\/em> is a massive expansion pack that's giving fans of the series all the more reason to keep playing. The environments are surrounded by ice and the monsters are as ferocious as they've ever been. If you already own this game, the expansion will cost around $39.99. Normally, that would seem like a lot of money. Yet, this update is pretty much a full-fledged game that features the biggest area in the base game.\r\n\r\nWe're now just a couple of days away from its official release, but some industry experts have already gotten their hands on the game. This is standard practice for major AAA games. <em>Iceborn<\/em> looked promising judging from all of the trailers, and according to some early reviews, it is.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=BKfknSQncvI\r\n\r\nThe majority of the gaming community are pleased to see that <em>Iceborn<\/em> was designed with the core mechanics in mind. Thus, users don't have to learn new moves or drastically change the way they approach monster hunting. It's the same design that fans of the series know and love. That doesn't mean <em>Iceborn<\/em> is the same experience, though.\r\n\r\nThe environments in <em>Iceborn<\/em> are much more open and vast. These characteristics can be attributed to the miles and miles of icy landscapes and mountain terrains. It's a sheer pleasure navigating these arctic regions, never really knowing what monster could be lurking in the misty fog.\r\n\r\nSome reviewers are going as far as saying Iceborn is the best expansion they've ever had the <em>pleasure<\/em> of playing. That's quite an accomplishment considering the add-on isn't even out yet. It means we have some amazing hunts to look forward to. Veterans of the series will feel right at home.\r\n\r\nThose picking up the game for the first time can actually get a bundled package -- <em>Monster Hunter: World<\/em> and <em>Iceborn<\/em> -- for just $59.99. That's a pretty amazing deal when you think about it. You'll find it difficult to get a game with as much content as this bundle has. You could honestly spend months going through all of the available quests.\r\n\r\nAlthough a lot of the monsters aren't completely new, they still feel like a great addition according to many who've completed the game. The developers put in some fan-favorites and some of the new additions certainly put up a challenge. <em>Iceborn<\/em> isn't an official sequel according to Capcom, but it pretty much should be. That's how in-depth and great it is.
