Details on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne‘s fourth free update will be shared in a livestream at 5 AM PDT / 8 AM EDT on July 1, Capcom announced. The update brings the black dragon Alatreon to the game on July 9, in addition to other new features that were teased in a tweet by Capcom.
The video shows glimpses of what appears to be a new event, with a Pukei-Pukei decoration inside the Seliana Gathering Hub. A glimpse of a Barioth, one of the monsters added with the Iceborne expansion, is shown at the end of video.
Alatreon is just the tip of the iceberg… 👀❄️
