Capcom just announced the April 2021 Monster Hunter Digital Event featuring Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2. This digital event will be on the Monster Hunter official Twitch channel here and will include details for the Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0 free title update including its release date and likely more considering the update is set to arrive in “late April”. The event will also include news on Monster Hunter Stories 2. Monster Hunter Stories 2 pre-orders just went live. Details for pre-orders on PC are here. Watch the launch trailer for Monster Hunter Rise that showcases Apex Rathalos below:
Monster Hunter Digital event time and date in April
The Monster Hunter Digital Event will begin on April 27 at 7:30 PM IST (or 3:00 PM GMT and 7:00 AM PST).
Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0 update download size
Capcom confirmed that the Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0 update download size is about 0.9GB.
Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0 update patch notes will be revealed after the event
As with most Monster Hunter updates, expect the patch notes to be available after the event ends and before the update has launched worldwide.
I recently spoke to Yasunori Ichinose at Capcom about Monster Hunter Rise’s returning monsters and more. Read the full interview here. I also spoke to Ryozo Tsujimoto about Monster Hunter Stories 2 and how it can be enjoyed by newcomers. Read that interview here. Since the Monster Hunter April 2021 Digital Event will feature updates on both Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2, I’m hopeful that Capcom announces more plans for post launch updates to both games.
