Capcom recently announced that a pair of brand new Monster Hunter World monsters will be arriving on consoles in March, with a PC release planned for shortly afterwards in April.

The announcement was made on the official Monster Hunter Twitter page. You can check it out below.

“The date is set!” the post reads. “Raging Brachydios and Furious Rajang will challenge bravest hunters on March 23 on PS4 and Xbox One! Coming to PC in April.”

It’s worth noting that this will be the last time in which a Monster Hunter World DLC release date will be staggered for PC players. As Capcom said back in January, the content roadmap for Monster Hunter World going forward will see console and PC players receive future updates simultaneously. You can check out that announcement below, where Capcom also mentioned that May would see the “return of a fan-favourite monster.”

The additions of the two new monsters for March and April – the infernal dino Raging Brachydios and the volatile monkey giant Furious Rajang – will arrive as part of the third expansion Capcom has released for Iceborne, and, like the pair that came before it, it’s completely free.

If you fell off the Monster Hunter bandwagon a little while ago, but are excited about the new Iceborne updates, you can bring yourself up to speed by reading through our most recent set of Monster Hunter World patch notes. Fans of the series will also want to check out the two new Monster Hunter movie posters that were recently unveiled. You’ll be glad to know that the swords are absolutely huge.

Console players can expect the newest pair of monsters to hit Iceborne on March 23, whereas PC players can expect them a few weeks after that. Meanwhile, the Monster Hunter film is set to launch on September 4, 2020. It’s being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
