Here is an overview of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, via Capcom:

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a massive premium expansion for Monster Hunter: World. The game features a full narrative experience that continues from the ending of Monster Hunter: World, bringing players to a vast new area known as the Hoarfrost Reach. A host of additional elements have also been included, such as both new and fan-favorite monsters, a new “Master Rank” difficulty level and a new player mechanic known as the Clutch Claw. Further, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was honored with the Best Ongoing Game award at Gamescom 2019 in Germany last month, a prize awarded to the best expansion or downloadable content of the show. As a result of garnering this attention from around the globe, and in addition to successfully carrying out a variety of strategic measures that included offering Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition, a set aimed at newcomers to the game which bundles Monster Hunter: World with the expansion, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne achieved sales of 2.5 million units soon after launch.
