Monster Hunter World: Iceborne video introduces the story, riding monsters, and Glavenus' return

A new Monster Hunter World: Iceborne video showing off additional monsters and touching upon the storyline was released today.

Capcom released a trailer today showing off the new world of Velkhana, the land which is featured front and center in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.

Along with a  look at the icy landscape, the video showed a few glimpses of Seliana, the new base and headquarters for investigations and useful facilities.

The video also shows the monsters Velkhana, the new world version of Tigrex, and a Legiana variant called the Shrieking Legiana.

At the end of the trailer though, came the big surprise: Glavenus. The monster made its debut in Monster Hunter Generations.

Along with a look at the story and more monsters, the video showed players riding monsters, which will come in handy when traveling long distances.

There's plenty more to be dissected from the video, thankfully, we have Arekkz for that.

Monster Hunter: Iceborne will release worldwide for consoles on September 6. The PC version will release sometime during the “winter” months.

Get a head start on the expansion by looking over these handy videos showing off some of the new weapon movesets and armor.
