Capcom has announced details for upcoming PlayStation 4 beta sessions for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the upcoming expansion to Capcom’s best-selling title of all time, Monster Hunter: World.
The first Iceborne beta will be available exclusively for PlayStation Plus users from 3am PDT/11am BST on Friday, June 21 through 3am PDT/11am BST on Monday, June 24. A second beta will be available for all PS4 users from 3am PDT/11am BST on Friday, June 28 through 3am PDT/11am BST on Monday, July 1.
Preload options will be available a couple of days before each beta period begins. The Monster Hunter: World base game is not required to participate in the Iceborne beta.
The beta offers players three quest choices, including the beginner-friendly Great Jagras hunt from Monster Hunter: World for newcomers, the brand new horned brute wyvern Banbaro for an intermediate challenge or Tigrex for the fiercest of hunters. The beta will let players test out all 14 weapon types in any of the three quests and the training area.
The full release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be available on September 6, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release to follow in winter. The Monster Hunter: World base game is required for Iceborne.
