Capcom announced last year a major expansion to Monster Hunter: World named Iceborne, introducing a new tundra area, Hoarfrost Reach, new monsters to battle, and much more. However, while the expansion released to critical acclaimed on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in September, the PC version was nowhere in sight, until now.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion is heading to Steam on January 9, 2020, Capcom announced today. See its shiny and new 4K 60FPS trailer above.
To make the delayed arrival a little easier to swallow, the developer revealed that the PC version adds on some additional enhancements over the console release, primarily to enhance graphical fidelity and performance.
The PC version will ship with DirectX 12 support, and touts an optional high resolution texture pack that will be available at release. Just like the base game, uncapped frame rates, improved keyboard and mouse controls, and support for ultra-wide screens were also confirmed.
The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne pre-orders are already available on Steam, coming in at $39.99. There's also a Digital Deluxe edition available that costs $49.99. Celebrating the news, the base game has gone on sale as well, dropping its price by half to $29.99.
