Monster Hunter and post-launch updates go hand in hand, with that kind of rollout also coming to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Judging by the plans leading into September, the main focus is on adding both monster variants and co-op content via these free updates.

Per today’s Special Pre-Launch Program, the following title updates are on the way:

Free Title Update #1 – July 15th

  • Palamute Monstie

Free Title Update #2 – August 5th

  • Kulve Taroth Co-op Exclusive Monster
  • Hellblade Glavenus Monstie
  • Boltreaver Astalos Monstie

Free Title Update #3 – Early September

  • Soulseer Mizutsune Monstie
  • Elderfrost Gammoth Monstie
  • Oroshi Kirin Monstie

Free Title Update #4 – Late September

  • Kulve Taroth (High Difficulty) Co-op Exclusive Monster
  • Dreadking Rathalos Monstie
  • Molten Tigrex Monstie

Free Title Update #5 – October

  • Silver Rathalos Monstie
  • Gold Rathian Monstie
  • ??? Co-op Exclusive Monster

Seeing the whole Fated Four get their variants added is great for anyone missing the lot of them, and it seems Monster Hunter World’s raid exclusive Kulve Taroth is a big part of their co-op strategy. And what could that mysterious final monster be…?

Monster Hunter Stories 2’s base game will be available July 9th. You can check out its earliest moments in a free trial version, available now, and look forward to all these freebies in the coming months.
