One of the biggest surprises from the second PlayStation State of Play stream was the announcement of the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World. Promising a brand new area to explore and new monsters to hunt, the Iceborne expansion rivals the size of the base game. Considering the sheer amount of content the expansion looks to be providing to players, some have been wondering how much the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will cost.
Since the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion is available to pre-order through the PlayStation Store and elsewhere, we can now confirm its price. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will cost $39.99. However, those interested can get the Digital Deluxe version for $10 more at $49.99. Iceborne is not a standalone expansion, so players will have to own the base game first, which is currently retailing for around $20. Alternatively, players can buy a bundle featuring the Monster Hunter World base game and the Iceborne expansion for $59.99.
While some may feel like $39.99 is a little pricey for an expansion, it does seem as though the Iceborne expansion is looking to add significant content to Monster Hunter World. Meanwhile, others may even be tempted to shell out the extra cash for the Iceborne Digital Deluxe Edition, and may be wondering what they will get in exchange.
As revealed by the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne PlayStation store listing, here is everything that comes in the Digital Deluxe Edition:
- Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Expansion
- Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Deluxe Kit
- Silver Knight Layered Armor Set
- 3 Gestures
- 2 Sticker Sets
- 1 Face Paint
- 1 Hairstyle
- 1 Decor Set (for room customization)
- Special avatar: Monster Icon Pack
On top of this bonus content, those that pre-order the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will get the Yukumo Layered Armor Set. It's worth pointing out that the layered armor sets are just cosmetic and won't provide any in-game advantages for the player.
Whether or not the Iceborne Digital Deluxe Edition is worth the price of admission will be up to the discretion of each Monster Hunter World player. While we will still need to see more of the Iceborne expansion itself to determine whether or not it justifies its price tag, it does seem as though Capcom is going all-out with the Monster Hunter World's first major expansion.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne launches on September 6, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release in early 2020.
