Capcom recently held their presumably last developer diary for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, and as many fans may have predicted, the final monster coming to the game will be none other than the original Black Dragon, Fatalis. The evil dragon will arrive on October 1st, 2020 in the final update to the game, which also adds new gear, weapons, armour, event quests, and more. The developer diary touched upon some details of Fatalis' fight, but not all, leaving some element of secrecy to the encounter. Nonetheless, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has certainly gone out with a bang and a tearful goodbye.

The developer diary kicked right off introducing Castle Schrade, a familiar location from past games where hunters typically fought Fatalis using an assortment of Dragonators, canons, and ballistas scattered around. A new character, the General, arrives in the New World with information on Fatalis' coming. The story will conclude with this final chapter in the game, and it's definitely one of their biggest updates yet.
Find below the full 2020 roadmap for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's final update:
With this final update, we can also expect seasonal events to continue. October will once again feature a Halloween-themed event featuring new armor/layered armor, and event quests. In addition to that, Fatalis' update will also bring Arch-Tempered Velkhana into the mix via a new event quest, as well as the long-requested Master Rank Layered Armor (all of them will be available at once, it seems). The developer diary ended on an optimistic note, and provided a montage reflecting back on the long journey Monster Hunter World has taken us on since its launch in January 2018. It has been an epic adventure.
