New Monster, Crossover Event Gonna' Give it to Ya in Monster Hunter World Iceborne

Monster Hunter World builds up to scary-good content drop in forthcoming patch.

After finally arriving on PC in January, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is set see major new content additions starting February 6. That's when the mighty thunder ape Rajang arrives as a free content update for Iceborne on Steam.

To go after Rajang, aspiring hunters must meet with the Admiral in Seliana after completing the campaign and visiting the Guiding Lands. The teaser trailer above provides a good idea of what to expect from the update.

However, that's not the only new change coming to Iceborne, as a Capcom crossover is due to arrive later this month. In anticipation of the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, the long-running zombie series is about to invade Monster Hunter: World, letting players tackle zombies with Mr. X as their handler.

There's no confirmed start date for the Resident Evil/Iceborne crossover event, though we know it will come sometime in February.
