Monster Hunter: World Iceborne Beta Soon, Here Are the Dates

The Monster Hunter: World Iceborne beta will be running before the end of June.

Monster Hunter: World Iceborne may not be seeing its PlayStation 4 release until September, but hunters will get their first taste of the expansion much sooner than that.

Capcom will be holding a beta for Iceborne on PS4 in the coming days, in two waves. The first wave being for PlayStation Plus subscribers only, with the second being for all PS4 Monster Hunter: World players.

PS Plus subscribers will be able to hop onto Monster Hunter: World and get to hunting on the frosty peaks of Hoarfrost Reach on June 21, and be able to play the beta until June 23. That’s three days of early-early beta access!

You’re not out of luck if you’re not a PS Plus subscriber, though: all MHW hunters will be able to partake in the beta on June 28 regardless of whether they have a PS Plus account. This more open beta phase will be running until June 30.

Now in bullet points:

  • PS+ subscribers get access from June 21 to 23
  • All MHW PS4 players get access from June 28 to 30

Monster Hunter: World Iceborne won’t just bring the new Hoarfrost Reach map and new monsters. The expansion will also bring riding on select monsters for easier transport, a new grappling hook mechanic, a slinger system overhaul, and Master Rank (the G Rank replacement). If that all isn’t music to a hunter’s ears, I don’t know what is.

Capcom plans on releasing the full expansion come September 6, but be sure to log into Monster Hunter: World during the beta period to get a taste of the future of the game.
