There will be no new areas in the beta, though as the game is set to release on January 26th, we won't have long to wait to get our hands on the full experience.

Developer Phoenix Labs is stacked with former staffers from League of Legends' Riot Games, but they are nevertheless an underdog in a genre more or less invented by Capcom's long-running franchise. The action-packed trailer gives us a glimpse of the Elder Dragons, some new and some old favourites who return. The first one of these, due out in the spring, adds the Deviljho monster. Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto took to Twitter with a brief video thanking fans for their invaluable feedback during the beta testing process and announcing that the game is now being optimized for PC, aiming for an autumn 2018 release.
Dodogama is described in the press release as "a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers".
During a live stream in Japan today, Capcom announced new details and a trailer for the upcoming launch of Monster Hunter: Worldwhich is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018.
