Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has released its finale free title update recently, and there is a ton of content to dive into. The update will see hunters return to the old world to face the legendary Black Dragon Fatalis. Coming alongside the new monster is the Fun Fright Festival and Arch-Tempered Velkhana.
Developers also released a video titled “Final Stand,” which goes into more detail about the massive update and all the content coming with it. Find it below.
Black Dragon Fatalis is a mystery; no one knows where it came from or how old it is. The monster has a connection to the blighted Castle Schrade that was destroyed in a legendary calamity. Following previous squads that failed to return from the castle, players will set out for a battle to make history and be rewarded with tremendously powerful armor, weapons, and Palico gear.
Hunters will also be able to battle the terrifying Arch-Tempered Velkhana as a part of a unique event quest that begins October 16. The new, more powerful version of the iconic monster comes complete with new attacks and behaviors and gear for hunters and their Palicos.
Seasonal Event Details
Beginning on October 16 and continuing through November 5, Seliana’s Lunar Terrace will have new Halloween themed decorations for the Fun Fright Festival. Players can expect to find new Poogie costumes, seasonal Palico gear, a Paid Handler costume, and loads more content to explore. As always, there will also be new layered armor available along with new and old returning event quest.
Gameplay Changes and More
Coming also is a new skill called Clutch Claw Boost, which will allow users to wound monsters more quickly and create more frequent slinger ammo. Also being added is new melding options that make crafting charms and decorations easier. The update includes new pendant options for weapons and even some paid DLC for hunters’ rooms. Last but not least, there are also new squad and guild cards coming with the update so players can show off their progress in style.
