PC gamers will finally be able to get their hands on Monster Hunter World Iceborne which is a new DLC of the game. The base game, Monster Hunter World released back in January of 2018. And now Capcom is releasing the PC version of the new DLC on Steam. And it seems like players are coming back to the game as we get closer to the release date of the DLC. The DLC goes live at 10.30PM IST today.
Those that bought the DLC can pre-download it and wait for it to go live. But one not so great piece of news is that those that have the base game but have not bought the DLC still have to download the update. Capcom has announced that those playing the main game also have to download the update which will be pretty heavy. Most expect the new patch to be over 40GB in size which is massive for those that don’t have the DLC.
