At today’s Monster Hunter Digital Event, Capcom revealed the Monster Hunter Rise update roadmap. If you haven’t gotten the game yet, read my Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch review here. Following the announcement of Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0.0, we now know the Monster Hunter Rise version 3.0.0 update release window and what it includes. The Monster Hunter Rise version 2.0.0 update includes fixes to the melding table-related issues, new monsters, support for new cosmetic DLC, and a lot more. Version 3.0 brings several new monsters and the new ending to the story of Kamura Village. Check out the Monster Hunter Rise update roadmap below:
Monster Hunter Rise update roadmap May 2021
Monster Hunter Rise will get the version 2.0 update beginning tomorrow bringing in the following new monsters:
- Apex Rathalos
- Apex Diablos
- Kushala Daora
It will also add new layered armor, DLC, regular quests with Apex monsters, Hunter Rank uncapped, and more.
Monster Hunter Rise version 3.0 update releases at the end of May with several new monsters, a new ending, and more.
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.
Monster Hunter Rise is out now on Nintendo Switch. It releases in 2022 for PC via Steam.
