Formidable black dragon Alatreon heading to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne in May

As Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players on Xbox One and PS4 ready to take on the fearsome twosome of the Raging Brachydios and Furious Rajang today, Capcom has revealed the next batch of post-launch content currently being primed for the coming months, including a new limited-time event for April and a doozy of a returning monster for May.

Capcom had previously teased that a “fan-favourite” creature would be making its Iceborne debut in May, and its identity has finally been revealed to be the formidable, elemental-shifting black dragon Alatreon, first introduced in Monster Hunter 3. As you’d expect, there’ll be craftable weapons and armour themed around Alatreon, and you can behold its mighty Monster Hunter World makeover in the reveal trailer below.

Before Alatreon’s arrival in May, Iceborne players on PC and consoles will have the chance to celebrate the onset of spring, courtesy of the new Full Bloom Fest limited-time event, which begins at 1am, 10th April in the UK, and come to a close on 7th May.
