Capcom has released the fifth update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on the PC, Update 15.01. As the press release reads, this update brings players back to the Old World to face off the mysterious legendary Black Dragon Fatalis. In addition, Capcom released a new developer diary that you can find below.
Starting October 16 through November 5, Seliana’s Lunar Terrace will be decorated like a graveyard bash for the new seasonal Fun Fright Festival. The whole Gathering Hub is also looking to join in on the monster mash, with tricks and treats such as a new spectral Poogie costume, monstrous seasonal Palico gear, a paid seasonal Handler costume, a new snowman design, and a teeth-rotting selection of sweets at the canteen. Hunters looking to scare up some fun can redeem tickets from log-in bonuses, seasonal bounties and event quests to obtain the new Demonlord ?+ armor, and new layered armor such as the Skull Scarf, Kadachi Scarf, and more.
Hunters can now equip the new Clutch Claw Boost skill which allows them to wound monster parts more easily and create more frequent slinger ammo drops. Additionally, this patch brings new melding options. It also adds an expanded list of decorations to craft and the ability to upgrade charms. Ardent fashion hunters will now be able to craft Layered Armor of any set in the game. Finally, those interested in showcasing their progress throughout a year of Iceborne can choose from a number of new Squad Card and Guild Card designs to display their Hunter’s achievements.
As always, Steam will download this update the next time you launch its client. You can also find its complete changelog here.
