Monster Hunter: World was already a gorgeous online world filled with multiplayer opportunities, but the expansion/revision IceBorne added a whole lot of new content and quality-of-life changes that make the game more accessible than ever. If you’ve never felt the rush of tracking with a team, attacking, and eventually conquering enormous monsters that could kill you with a swat — well, it’s worth the ride. In-depth exploration and crafting options allow you to pick your favorite weapon/armor types and keeping upgrading as long as you play … and since World is always adding more endgame monsters, that could be a long, long time.
