Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is bringing some variants into play

Capcom has released a new trailer for Monster Hunter World Iceborne that shows of some new sub-species of creatures that players will be able to hunt this September.

Subspecies monsters join the roster in Iceborne, offering extreme, twisted variations that amp up the difficulty and require master-level hunting skills to defeat. The latest trailer provides a peek at just two of the ferocious variants that await: the electrifying brute wyvern Fulgur Anjanath channels lightning instead of fire and the fanged wyvern Ebony Odogaron is more vicious than ever with a wider attack range and dragon elemental. In addition to these fearsome subspecies, the fiery Glavenus, whose distinguishable roar was teased in the previous story trailer, wields its sword-like tail to wipe out hunters with its trademark sweep attack.

As part of the cozy new Seliana home base in Hoarfrost Reach, a streamlined Gathering Hub offers a warm welcome for hunting parties with more centralized facilities and features. Built around an interactive hot spring, hunters and Palicoes can conveniently manage all the pre-hunt necessities in close proximity such as the Smithy to craft gear, resource center to manage bounties or botanical research to harvest items. “My Room” is also accessible and features new personalization options such as furniture, décor, and colors, with a post-launch update planned to allow other players to visit each other’s spaces.

If that was not enough for you, the game will also introduce a new feature that will adjust the balance of a hunt, if two players drop out from a group, leaving the remaining hunters a chance to finish. That however is not all, you can now start with only two players and the game will balance itself, so you are in with a chance still, as the Palicoes will be getting some upgrades as well.

Finally, over on the PlayStation YouTube channel, the latest developer diary has been released for the title, which you can watch below
