During the last Monster Hunter World: Iceborne developer diary, Capcom announced that Alatreon would be added to the game on all platforms in May. Alatreon is an elder dragon introduced in Monster Hunter 3. Alatreon is usually unstable and often called the Blazing Black Dragon. Today, Capcom announced that the coronavirus pandemic has caused the team to delay the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on all systems that adds Alatreon and more. In the old roadmap for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Capcom revealed that a fan favourite monster will be added to the game in May. That was revealed to be Alatreon. Today, Capcom also revealed a new roadmap for the game on all platforms since updates are now in sync. Watch the Alatreon reveal trailer for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne below:
