Regardless of primarily being DLC for Monster Hunter: World, it’ll rival the dimensions of the unique recreation, bringing a brand new map on prime of latest enemies and a brand new storyline. Whereas gamers will want to have accomplished Monster Hunter: World to take play Iceborne, contemplating it’s Capcom’s best-selling title, Capcom will not be fearful about that.
Although we could not see every other main video games from the writer in 2019 (and early 2020), we do know that Capcom is engaged on quite a lot of video games in its RE engine, which powered video games like Resident Evil 2 and Satan Could Cry 5. A few of these video games are even for the subsequent technology of techniques, all however confirming we possible received’t hear about them for a while.
