Open β test! "Monster Hunter World: Iceborn"

Open β test!

CAPCOM's globally popular "Monster Hunter" hunting action game series.
Monster Hunter World, released in January 2018, has evolved with beautiful graphics and a seamless map structure while maintaining the same feel of control, and as of March 2019, it is a very popular title that boasts sales of 12.4 million units worldwide.

"Monster Hunter World: Iceborn", a huge expansion to "Monster Hunter World", is scheduled to be released on September 6, 2019, and an open beta test will be held prior to the release of the game!

Two beta tests will be held!

This beta test will be held on PlayStation4.
There will be two rounds, the first for PS Plus subscribers only, and the second for everyone with a network connection across PS4.
Note that you will not be able to play offline!

The first round for PS Plus subscribers will be held from 19:00 on Friday, June 21, 2019 to 18:59 on Monday, June 24, 2019.
The second round for the whole group is scheduled for Friday, June 28, 2019 at 19:00 - Monday, July 1, 2019 at 18:59.

Multiplayer in Monster Hunter World required a PS Plus subscription, so most hunters nationwide will be PS Plus subscribers, so they can play both times.

3 quests of different difficulty levels

In this beta test, you will be able to play 3 different quests with different difficulty levels.

Beginner level quest [Dos Jugras, the Glutton of the Woods]

Hunting Dos Jugras
Field:Forest of Ancient Trees

The beginner level [Dos Jagras, Glutton of the Forest] is probably the same quest that was in the beta test before Monster Hunter World's release. It is ideal for getting to know the controls and systems.

The intermediate level quest [Hunting Buff Baro the Bull Dragon] introduces the new "Buff Baro" monster. What kind of motion will it use to torment hunters?

Quest for advanced hunters [Tigalex in all directions]

Hunting Tigalex
Field: Migratory frozen ground

In the advanced level [Tigalex in every direction], the powerful enemy "Tigalex" appears. How has its agility, irregular movements, and destructive attacks been reborn?
