Recently, Capcom released a roadmap of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, which revealed the upcoming updates for the first half of 2020. The development roadmap also confirms that PC and console ports of the game will “sync” in April. As of now, Console versions of Monster Hunter: World receive updates ahead of the PC version. After the “synchronization”, all future updates will arrive on PC and consoles at the same time.

As for upcoming updates, players can participate in Grand Appreciation Fest from January 23 to February 13. In February, the PC version of the game will get the new monster Furious Rajang and the new location Guilding Lands Volcanic Region. There will also be a Limited Time event, a crossover between Resident Evil 2 and Monster Hunter, both of which are owned by Capcom. As a part of the crossover, Mr. X will be making an appearance in Monster Hunter: World. The crossover was announced via a trailer back in October. This is not the first time a character from another game has made it into the world of Monster Hunter. In the past, Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher franchise and Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn were also made available as part of timed events. In March, PC players will receive two news monsters, Stygian Zinogre and Safi'jiiva, and a new Guilding Lands Tundra Region.


April is the month where both sides of the game will “sync”. Additionally, Master Rank versions of existing monsters will be released and players will be able to participate in the Aster/Seliana fest. Capcom has also teased that a fan-favorite monster will arrive in May and brand new monsters and updates will follow for the next month. It seems like Monster Hunter is not going to slow down any time soon. Capcom has put extensive resources towards improving the game, and looks to continue to do so.

The PC port of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was plagued with bugs like CPU issues and save data errors at launch. Patch 10.21.01 has been deployed to fix these shortcomings. You can read more about the 10.21.01 patch here.
