Game publisher CAPCOM recently announced that the first Monster Hunter World: Iceborne beta will be available for the PlayStation Plus members this month.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion beta coming in early
PS Plus members can take advantage of an early access of the Iceborne expansion beta soon for the PlayStation 4. These subscribers can start on June 21 at 3:00 a.m. PT, and run through the same time on June 24.
The second beta will be available for all PS4 users later on. This will start on June 28 at 3:00 a.m. PT, and run through the same time on July 1.
The best part is that players can preload this beta a couple days earlier before each beta. The base game is not required to participate.
Here is the overview of the 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 returning series favorite 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 weapons include new features plus there are new Slinger tool options such as the Clutch Claw grapple mechanic. Upon completing each quest for the first time, hunters can earn a total of three item packs containing helpful consumable items that will be available to use in the full version of the Iceborne expansion when it releases. With more monsters and game info to be revealed, this is just the tip of the Iceborne!
The expansion will be launched on PS4. It will be available on Sept. 6.
