Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne Title Update 5 Live

What looks to be the final free Title Update for Capcom’s co-operative action-RPG Monster Hunter: World is now live across all supported platforms. Sending the game off into the sunset is Fatalis, the Legendary Black Dragon, accompanied by a new seasonal event, some fresh content and challenges, and a series of limited time Street Fighter V collaboration quests.

You can find the latest patch notes here and learn more about Fatalis and the new event below, but first, here’s the official update trailer:

Hunters of the Fifth Fleet, it’s time to pay a visit to a historical site, and confront a living legend…

Fatalis, the Legendary Black Dragon

Passed down from generation to generation as just a legend, Fatalis is said to have wiped out an entire kingdom overnight. Such power and potential makes for very scary stories, but little evidence was ever made available. However, the Guild has now confirmed the return of this mythical Elder Dragon; it’s heading straight to Castle Schrade to finish what it had started.

Hunters, make sure you bring out your best gear and keep your wits about you venturing into this quest. Weapons from the castle’s last stand are still available—hopefully functional—and you’ll need all the help you can get to fend off the Legendary Black Dragon… and survive to tell the tales.

NOTE: Before you can take on the Special Assignment to hunt Fatalis, you must be MR 24 or higher, have completed at least the Safi’jiiva Recon Assignment, and have encountered Alatreon in its Special Assignment at least once.

Fall Seasonal Event – Fun Fright Fest

Our next seasonal event in Iceborne will be all about monsters. No, not the ones you hunt in Quests; we’re talking creatures of darkness… demons, succubi, and ghosts!

But don’t worry! These aren’t real. At least not in Astera or Seliana anyway. So we’re decking out the Seliana Gathering Hub with sinister new décor and tuning the music selection to “spooky.” We invite you to partake in the activities and, if you’re brave enough, try out our new seasonal food platter. Its nutritional value is a mystery worth the dare.

And as per tradition, we’ll feature a plethora of items to craft and collect: Armor Sets, Layered Armor, Weapon Pendants, Palico Gear, a Poogie Outfit and more!

Fun Fright Fest will run from October 16 until November 5 UTC.
