Later this year, Capcom will drop fifth major Title Update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. It is set to arrive sometime during Autumn 2020 according to the latest roadmap.

The wait is almost over. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's Title Update 4 is finally set to arrive next week with Blazing Black Dragon Alatreon as the biggest highlight. The developers, Capcom, talked about this update in today's live stream, revealing a lot of information about the new additions which include new armour set and weapons.

On top of this, shortly after the live stream, Capcom officially updated the Title Update roadmap for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Interestingly, the roadmap now includes a release window for the next major content drop - Title Update 5.

Title Update 5 should arrive sometime during Autumn 2020 it is stated in the roadmap and will include returning monster, Autumn seasonal events and Master Rank Layered Armour. Check out the full roadmap below:

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players are hoping that this returning monster is a slender Elder Dragon covered in gleaming silver scales named Valstrax. It would be a great addition without question but Capcom won't be revealing details about this update anytime soon.  

Anyway, until Title Update 5 drops, there are new Event Quests (tempered) between August 7 and 19, 2020, bringing Frostfang Barioth, new variant monster, as well as Frostfang weapons, armour and Palico Gear.
