The end is nigh for Monster Hunter World Iceborne; as the expansion’s first anniversary approaches, Capcom has confirmed that only one free content update, titled The Final Stand, is still to come. Happily, though, Iceborne is ending on a high, ushering in the series’ infamous black dragon Fatalis as its final opponent.
Fatalis will be available on all platforms starting at 1am on 1st October in the UK (that’s 5pm PDT on 30th September for our transatlantic chums) as part of Iceborne’s final update; this also introduces a number of other features, as detailed in Capcom’s latest developer video.
Fatalis, sometimes referred to as the Black Dragon, made its Monster Hunter debut all the way back in 2004, as part of the series inaugural outing on PlayStation 2. The creature retains its classic fantasy looks for Iceborne – its towering height, formidable wingspan, and fiery breath – but is even more imposing, thanks to its Monster Hunter World makeover, initially completed as part of the series’ 15th anniversary celebrations.
