Here is a preview of the update, via its official website:

Free Title Update 4 (Version 14)

  • New monsters
    • Velkhana – Known as the “Freezing Ice Dragons” or the “Icy Wyvern”, there are few traces of Velkhana. As such, they remain shrouded in mystery. Their icy breath is so cold that it can form huge walls of ice and arrows out of nowhere, and it’s even powerful enough to freeze other monsters. Some reports indicate that Velkhana will freeze his rivals in order to establish their domain.
    • Crimson Glimmer Risen Valstrax – Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax are Elder Dragons who have found a way to overcome their affliction. By removing the Qurio virus, they gained great strength and new abilities. Their abundance of dragon energy has granted them greater agility and even more devastating explosive powers. Very few will be able to withstand their ferocious attacks. When their anger reaches its peak, they will enter their Risen state and their bodies will begin to glow.

Free Title Updates Roadmap

  • April 2023 – Free Title Update 5 (Version 15) including Returning Ancient Dragon and Power Up Monster.

And here are some more details, via Capcom:

A freezing force of nature that few scientists have ever seen is heading towards the Frost Islands. Velkhana, the elusive elder dragon who debuted as the flagship monster of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, was spotted by Elgado Outpost scouts. This monster’s gracefully cool demeanor foreshadows the serene stillness of the many beings left frozen in its wake. By freezing ambient water in the air, Velkhana is able to form huge pillars of ice when engaged in combat, and can freeze even the most impetuous hunters. Winter winds often bring bad news, and the arrival of Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax proves that adage to be true. What this resurrected Elder Dragon is capable of remains a mystery, as it has been deemed too dangerous to study. Hunters dedicated to gathering more data for their incessantly curious science teams can take on Velkhana from MR 10 and Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax from MR 160. All the materials gathered from these excursions will of course be invaluable for crafting new weapons and armor with their own skills.

Qurio-curious will also have new Anomaly Research at their fingertips, with Afflicted Chaotic Gore Magala joining A8★ quests, and the Anomaly Investigation cap rising to 220. Elder Dragons will start spawning from the difficulty level 111, so be ready for a fight! Event Quests will continue to arrive weekly, including two new Dual Threat Quests featuring Seething Bazelgeuse and Chaotic Gore Magala, as well as an Arena Quest featuring Furious Rajang and Scorned Magnamalo. Each event quest has its own unique reward, so be sure to try them out.

The free Title Update 4 also brings a variety of new paid DLC, including layered armor for rookie hunter Lance Gunn and the venerable Ran Page. These adorable doodles, hand-drawn by underrated talent Minoto, have been featured since the release of Rise of the Monster Hunter and help new hunters understand the ins and outs of Kamura Village. Speaking of Minoto, players can also purchase the “Minoto” layered armor along with new gestures, poses, stickers, music, and hunter voices. To celebrate the release of the free Title Update 4, players can also sign up for early access to free Palamute Layered Armor that allows their furry friends to take on the appearance of the ancient dragon Velkhana. !

The Monster Hunter Rise: Dawn of the Sun The expansion is available now for Switch and PC via Steam, and is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this spring.
