Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has been breaking numbers since it was released, and now the company has sold over 10 million copies. That’s damned good for an expansion to a game, Monster Hunter World, that has also broken several records as well.

For many MHW: Iceborne is the best version of Monster Hunter to date, and after playing several of them myself, I’m inclined to agree. Adding new features and improving on those from the base game, Iceborne continued the story from Monster Hunter World. Adding a new location, Hoarfrost Reach, the Master Rank players had been asking for, and more. The game played better for PC gamers than Monster Hunter World on its release. It was also a great jumping-in point for those who’ve never played a Monster Hunter game.
Sadly, we haven’t heard much about Monster Hunter World once Capcom released Monster Hunter Rise, but it would be nice if Capcom revisited the juggernaut that put Monster Hunter back on the map. If I recall correctly, the last console version of Monster Hunter was in April 2010, with the release of Monster Hunter Tri (3) for the Nintendo Wii, followed by an updated release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
