Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a DLC add-on and sequel to Monster Hunter World, though is large enough to have its own trophy list and Platinum. Players will explore new areas such as the freezing cold Hoarfrost Reach, hunt new monsters as well as variants of older monsters, and build new armor and weapons. Players are also introduced to the Clutch Claw, a new tool which allows players to attach themselves to monsters and perform more damage, as well as the Raider Rides, which are smaller creatures that can be ridden.
A mysterious song heard through the air causes a flock of Legiana to migrate across the sea. After tracking the migrating monsters, the Hunter discovers a new polar subcontinent filled with ice, snow, and monsters never seen before. After setting up a new base of operations, the Hunter sets off to discover the source of the song, as well as the strange seismic activity.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne received positive reviews with an average score of 90%, praised for the large scale of the expansion and its content, as well as its beautiful settings and graphics, and overall fun.
The trophies for Iceborne are similar to those in World, which means the difficulty, time required, and method to getting the Platinum, is basically the same. You’ll be spending the majority of your time completing the story, hunting for crowns, and getting your Master Rank level up to 200. One nice thing about this DLC is that, if you haven’t finished unlocking the trophies on World, doing so will now be easier with Iceborne since you’ll have much stronger armor and weapons.
Like World, expect anywhere between 300-400 hours for the Platinum on Iceborne.
Like in the previous game, your first step is to complete the main story of the game.
As you go through the missions, you’ll soon realize that playing Iceborne feels like starting over, as your armor and weapons from World are not strong enough. This is because everything has been upgraded from High Rank to Master Rank. As a result, it is not a bad idea to farm the first monster you face, the Beotodus, and use it to craft your first full set of MR armor and weapons.
Also, as you progress through the story, you will receive a tutorial-like quest that introduces you to the Clutch Claw, which can be used to send monsters crashing into a wall. This is an invaluable move, for not only does this trick do a lot of damage to the monster and knocks it down, but will always break off a piece of material to be collected. We highly recommend becoming a master of the Clutch Claw. If the tutorial quest isn’t good enough, check out the video under our Links tab.
Once the story is complete, it’s time to explore the Guiding Lands, which is an area that incorporates all the bio-domes from World into one area. You’ll ultimately want to reach Master Rank 100 in order to hunt the Ruiner Nergigante and thereby unlocking your last story-related trophy, while also upgrading the areas in the Guiding Lands.
Once you’ve defeated the Ruiner Nergigante and unlocked the Fate’s Conclusion trophy, it’s time to start mopping-up everything that’s left. This will include reaching Master Rank 200 for the Master Of Masters trophy, maximizing research levels for the Monster Master trophy, and obtaining both miniature and gold crowns for nearly all the monsters for both the True Miniature Crown Collector and True Large Crown Collector trophies.
There are also a number of miscellaneous trophies you may still be missing at this point. Be sure to check out the Iceborne trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.
