New locale, The Frost Islands
The location shown is the frost islands. The island use to be a huge nest of dragons a long time ago, and it was once said, that heroes use to come here and try to slay them to no avail. The island boasts a creepy atmosphere and large variety of endemic items that will help you on your hunts.
Goss Harag, a new monster. These creatures live in icy regions and roam the snowy fields for prey. Goss Harag using ice blades which it creates from its own breathe to attack hunters.
Barioth the Wyern, has huge fangs and sharp spikes, so be careful getting into battle with this thing. The front spikes on its paws and tail are actually scales, enabling Barioth to freely move around on icy surfaces.
Another flying Wyern is Khezu. This mainly lives in dark places such as caves. Khezu uses electricity to attack hunters from its long twisty neck.
The great baggi is a bird Wyern. The great baggi is quite distinctive in its colour and the crest on its head. It uses a fluid that puts you unconscious, so be careful of that sleep effect.
Lagombi, the fanged beast uses its belly to guide about, so be quick on your toes to deal with this beast.
Tigrex is exactly what you think. A cross-breed between trex and dragon. Strong, well developed claws and jaws causing massive damage to its prey.
Mizutsune is a leviathan monster. It produces bubbles which can greatly hinder your movement when going up against it.
Magnamalo is the fragship monster of the game. Its body is enveloped by a carapace hard as armour, and it attacks hunters with its tail that produces gas looking like hellfire.
