If you think that your trials in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne have come to an end, you are in for a surprise. The game is getting a free title update that will pit you against a pair of tough monsters that pose a serious challenge.

The free title update is dropping on the PS4 and Xbox One in March, allowing players to take on the Raging Brachydios and Furious Rajang. Both of these monster variants are expected to bring a hefty challenge and push the veterans of Monster Hunter World to their limits.

The Raging Brachydios is a slime dragon with explosive saliva dripping out of his mouth. This variant of the monster likes to blow up everything around it. Looking at the trailer, I think that the monster likely fills its den with lava, making things even trickier for the best hunters out there.

Alongside Raging Brachydios, Furious Rajang is the familiar horned gorilla filled with electricity. The original version of Raging Brachydios becomes enraged, turning its fur yellow and arms red. However, the newer variant seems to get extra aggressive.

While both of these monsters will be ready to hunt on consoles, PC gamers will have to wait until April before taking on these two new monsters.

Additionally, there is more good news for Monster Hunter World fans. After this update, both the console and PC version of the game will receive updates simultaneously going forward. PC gamers will no longer have to wait for months before getting their hands on the content that console gamers have played and forgotten.

Monster Hunter World received the Iceborne expansion in September 2019 on console and in January 2020 on PC. Although the expansion had a rocky release on PC, wiping player savegames and high CPU usage, it was soon fixed. The game is currently running smoothly without any major issues.
