How to start MHW Iceborne DLC?

When you start the game after you’ve bought and installed the expansion, you’ll be greeted with the above message. It says there’s a Legiana in the Ancient Forest, which is something you should investigate. If you don’t get this message upon starting the game, it means the DLC hasn’t launched in your region yet. If you’ve got the message, go and talk to the Feisty Fiver, the NPC hanging around next to the notice board in Astera.

He’ll send you on an expedition in the Ancient Forest. Just follow the handler while she tracks the beast. After you’ve reached the end, you’ll be rewarded with a cutscene. The quest will end after a lengthy conversation with the entire management around a sturdy wooden desk. Once that cutscene is over, and you’ve unlocked master rank, talk to the commander. He’ll give you the option to board the Third Fleet airship and head for Hoarfrost Reach.

You’ll land quite roughly, and you’ll have to establish a base camp yourself. You’ll also have to wrestle with your first native beast, a Beotodus. Defeat it, and you’ll be taken to Selina, the new hub. There, you’ll get your first quests, meet a bunch of new people, hang out in the hot springs and decorate your new quarters.

      I have the same problem! I already downloaded the expansion but no prompt comes out to talk to the fiesty fiver when I enter the game. My HR is currently 73. I am able to claim the add ons in game though. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!!

    I have the same problem! I am currently HR73 (which should be enough for iceborne right?) and I also don’t get a prompt when I enter the game even though I can claim the add ons from my cat. Could someone help?

    I noticed that it does not matter if you have the dics version or the digital one, you need to buy the dlc. It’s around 30-50$ on the PS store.
