Capcom shared a bunch of new info on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s next updates including a closer look at Rajang, Layered Armor, the new volcanic region in Guiding Lands, and more.


Check out the Developer Diary #3 below:




An ultra-aggressive creature that few have a chance of surviving against.
Sports powerful arms that pack a punch, and turns gold when angry.

The new special assignment added in this update will lead you to the New World’s most recent discovery: Rajang!


Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s first free major update adds a special assignment that becomes available after completing the expansion’s ending. Once you have been to the Guiding Lands at least once, speak to the Admiral to start the special assignment!

The Rajang armor sets are designed to emulate the contrast between Rajang’s normal dark fur and its shining gold-colored fur! The armor skills also reflect Rajang’s aggressive nature.

Ver. 11.01 features the following adjustments to the Guiding Lands


  • Adjustments have been made to make the Guiding Lands easier to play. Future updates will feature more adjustments to make it easier to play.


  • Adjustment 1: Region Level change fluctuation adjusted

In the Guiding Lands, you can obtain different materials at each level, so adjustments have been made to how levels increase/decrease to make it easier to explore.

      • Region Level 1 – 2: No changes
      • Region Level 3 – 6: Fluctuates at the same rate as region level 2 did before the update
      • Region Level 7: Fluctuates at the same rate as region level 3 did before the update.


  • Adjustment 2: Adjusted the drop rate of special tracks obtained from monsters in the Guiding Lands

Unanalyzed special tracks are now easier to obtain, making it easier to lure out specific monsters and control your region level.

They are also now guaranteed upon capturing a monster, or carving from the monster’s body or broken part.


  • Adjustment 3: Region levels can now be fixed

Settings have been added so that region levels will not fluctuate, and you can explore the Guiding Lands freely with fixed levels.

Fixed region levels are applied per player even during multiplayer.

If you set region levels to fixed, your own region levels will not fluctuate whether you’re the quest leader or just joining another player’s quest.

You can fix region levels at the quest board when you select the Guiding Lands.



  • Adjustment 4: Expedition Objective added to fixed region play

Added a “Fixed Region” parameter that can be set when departing to the Guiding Lands, or used as search criteria.
Use this setting when you want to let players know you’re exploring with fixed levels, or if you want to search for expeditions using fixed levels.

This parameter will not fix region levels.

For instructions how to fix region levels, please see Adjustment 3.




  • Adjustment 5: Locating monsters in the Guiding Lands will no longer affect region level

The design of the Guiding Lands has been changed, as region level changing upon discovering a monster in the locale had an unintended effect.


Both Update Ver. 11.00 and 11.01 release on October 10, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
