E3 2019 is officially less than one week away, so it’s time to set the stage for all the exciting and fun activities you can expect from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Capcom this year at booth #2323 in South Hall.

Before we start, I just wanted to remind you to keep your eyes peeled for more news and updates from us as we get closer to E3. As you’ll see below, we’re leaving some stuff out… it’s really exciting stuff, but we can’t share it just yet, so stay tuned!

UPDATE: our mystery live stream for June 12th has been revealed: UpUpDownDown plays MHW: Iceborne with Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka, feat. WWE® Superstars Asuka™ and Xavier Woods®. Scroll down for more info.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Story Trailer

Let’s start with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Our newest trailer highlights the story, and starts to unveil some of the mysteries hidden beneath layers of ice and snow, while leaving us with even more questions about this new land and the mythical Velkhana.

Have you started piecing things together? Got any theories so far?

Also, how do you like the New World version of Tigrex? Feeling ready to face its relentless barrage of attacks…?

E3 2019 Demos

Well, if you’re attending E3 2019, you’ll get a chance to test your strength and skills against this fierce foe!

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is the star of our E3 booth this year, so we’re bringing a monstrous amount of multiplayer demo stations to give as many players as possible a chance to get their hands on the game. The two new main quests featured this time are “Hunt a Banbaro” and “Hunt a Tigrex,” both taking place in the expansive Hoarfrost Reach. Banbaro is a brand new monster capable of picking up a variety of elements of the environment (boulders… trees…) and bulldozing them around with attacks that change in size depending on the object. And Tigrex is just… unyielding!

They’re both forces to be reckoned with in their own right, so start brushing up on the latest Clutch Claw tech and new features revealed for every weapon type with this handy playlist:
