The Beta For Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Is Now Live For Xbox Players

By Heidi Nicholas, 1 month ago
The Beta for Iceborne, the upcoming expansion for Monster Hunter: World, is live today for Xbox Players.

The Beta offers hunters to test their skills against a variety of monsters, not least the Elder Dragon "Velkhana of the Frost". The Beta also allows hunters to earn rewards which will carry over to the full game. You'd better hurry if you want your chance against Velkhana, as the Beta closes soon, on September 4th at 11:59PM PDT, September 5th at 7:59AM BST. If you'd like more details about what the Beta has to offer, take a look here. Velkhana isn't all you'll have to face in the Iceborne expansion, however. Fan-favourite Zinogre, a fanged wyvern, will be returning.

We've got the full list of Monster Hunter: World achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
