The amount of time it’ll take you to beat Monster Hunter World: Iceborne depends on how you decide to play the game.

If you’re already a master at Monster Hunter World, Iceborne shouldn’t be too difficult for you to complete. As such, you’re probably looking at around 30 to 40 hours total.

Again, the average completion time reported by Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players is 36 hours, and this definitely seems correct based on our own experience with the expansion. That said, more content and monsters will be added to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne in the future, so even if you finish everything there is to offer right now, it’s worth checking back in with the game in the future for new updates.

For example, there are regular in-game events and challenges for you to take on that extend the overall time spent in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Because of this, we do feel it’s worth its somewhat steep $39.99 purchase price as it really does feel like you’re getting a full game experience.
