What is the Monster Hunter Rise 2021 roadmap?
After highlighting May’s new update and DLC, Capcom also hinted at what’s next for Monster Hunter Rise by showing off a roadmap featuring every update coming between May 2021 and August 2021. You can check it out below:
The roadmap kicks off by highlighting May’s 3.0 update. It then confirms that we can expect a Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin collab in mid-June that adds a Palio Layered Armor Tsukino Costume to the game. In late June, more DLC and event quests will come to Monster Hunter Rise through update 3.1.
Moving on to update 3.2 in July, we can expect another Capcom collab with an unspecified franchise as well as new event quests and DLC. Finally, August rounds out the current roadmap with version 3.3 of Monster Hunter Rise. Like in July, players can expect new DLC, new event quests, and yet another Capcom crossover.
Anything coming after that is still unannounced, though Capcom has teased that we can expect the game to come to PC eventually. For now, players can just expect a lot of event quest updates, DLC, and Capcom crossovers over the course of Summer 2021.
Monster Hunter Rise is available now for Nintendo Switch.
