Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

For those of you who don’t know, Monster Hunter World is a game released on PS4 early in 2018. Go play it, it’s really quite fantastic. And being a game that has some great fan interactions, they’ve included many competitions to design weapons and armour that can be put in the game.

I’ve always had excuses to not do it for some reason, but not this time because university is over and I officially have nothing on. The competition closes on Feb 6th I believe and while I’m not sure when they plan on announcing the winners or anything else, but I can tell you that the expansion is coming in Autumn of 2019. Which is a Japanese autumn, meaning somewhere between September to November.

I don’t think I can release any images of the final product yet for some reason, but I’m going to play it safe and just put up early designs and research for now.

I’ll link where to vote for the designs when it comes up, even if I don’t get in.

Nz Herald mention

Nice little mention in the Herald (unbeknownst to me). You’ll see more of my project on my website, and check out Katherine Rybinski and Emma Thornton for more interesting and very cool industrial design projects.
