Developer and publisher Capcom revealed the second free PC title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The first title update released back in February, which added the Thunder monster Rajang, opened up the new Volcanic Region, and kicked off the Holiday Joy Fest. At the time, the Iceborne expansion suffered performance issues, with some players reporting 100% CPU usage.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's second title update does more of the same, as it adds a new monster, the new Tundra Region, and a new siege, and more. Fans were fond of Zinogre when Iceborne drops, and now we are getting its Stygian subspecies. This time around instead of lightning, the Stygian Zinogre uses dragon elemental energy. Once you defeat it, you will have the privilege to craft new equipment with its distinctive black and red palette.
In addition to that, players will get to explore the snowy landscape of the Tundra region, featuring new and unique monsters adapted to its extreme climate. Not only that, the developer teased a new Tempered Elder Dragon in its blog post, the Tempered Ruiner Nergigante.
Once you find your grounds around the Tundra region and slain the Stygian Zinogre, it's time to move up to the big leagues. Players will get to experience the Siege of Safi’jiiva, where you work together to slay the beast and gain valuable loot.
The Siege of Safi’jiiva, titled “The Red Dragon,” will have you hunt this cataclysmic creature in a special locale with unique gameplay mechanics and Siege Objectives. Work together as a team to complete as many of those as possible, and slay the beast to earn rewards with phenomenal potential: the “awakened” Safi’jiiva weapons!
The siege kicks off on March 20th 00:00 UTC. In April, the PC version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will achieve content parity with the console versions.
