    Capcom has a handful of announcements to make for its Monster Hunter games, both released and upcoming. This digital event showcases plans for post-launch support for Monster Hunter Rise, and what fans can expect to see in Monster Hunter Stories 2 when it releases this summer.

    The stream kicks off with Stories 2 and a story trailer for it. Some characters from the first Stories game will be appearing in this one, such as Lilia and Reverto, and if you have save game data from Rise, you'll get a costume in the new game.

    Next is a glimpse of gameplay. It uses an improved version of the first game's turn-based system, and utilizes a triangle of types that are effective and weak against each other. Partners can join you in battle and help you out. You'll also be able to target parts of each monster and break off pieces to weaken them.

    Now it's on to Rise. Apex Diablo, Teostra, Apex Rathalos, and more are some of the monsters being added to the game. The 2.0 update will go live on April 28th. More quests are available, as well as armor and weapon sets.

    Cosmetic DLC will be available for purchase as well. Capcom will offer DLC that lets you change your character's appearance, though they'll give you one for free to start with. Gesture and sticker emotes are part of the included buyable additions.

    More events are planned to be added in the future.

    Arena and Rampage quests for experienced players are being added. There are single-player challenge quests for those that unlock the cap on their HR. Layered armor becomes available, letting you use your favorite cosmetic armor with the best stat-boosting armor.

    3.0 adds a new ending, and will come out sometime in May.

    Conteeeeeeeeeeeeeent! Super hyped for what's to come. Event quests being as they were in the old world is a great announcement, as well as apex monsters appearing in normal quests.

    Looking forward to getting stuck in.

    I can't believe MH has paid dlc now.

    Paying irl money to change your characters appearance. This is all Worlds fault.

    is the cosmetic dlc more dlc on top of what's already being offered? and, this is is for rise, correct? I bought all the dlc that was available about 9 days ago, and I haven't checked the eshop since then. I plan to buy the trails of cold steel iv dlc tomorrow, so should I check rise as well?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    btw, I did download the nsp of the dlc as well just to have it, but it took a while to rename everything with what dlc was what. I always use tinfoil.io to see what content id is what dlc. some are placeholders according to tinfoil, so I just named them all the same:

    You don't even need a dedicated tool tbf, Win+Shift+S is standard Windows and puts whatever you snip right onto your clipboard.

    Good stuff. This is also part of the reason I don't mind waiting for the PC release, there will be twice as much content in the game by then.

    I'm guessing they'll allow you to change things the normal appearance editor doesn't. You can't change your eye color, for example. I'd really like it if they give you the ability to change Buddy appearance a bit more.

    You can change minor things like hairstyle and makeup any time, but you need a voucher if you want to change your character's sex, modify facial features, and I think you can change its name as well.

    I think you're blaming the wrong editor. But maybe did Konami used that kind of tricks into a previous game?

    I remember seeing that in MHWorld... It was kind of frustrating to have to pay for such content. I don't care about paying for a Master Rank extension if it's as polished as Iceborn was, but cosmetics should be unlocked through event quests and not paywalls (or at least, not being locked behind such expensive ones: 20€ for the first DLC pack... Really?). :glare:

    mmmmmmmm not a fan of how everything you did prior to this update having zero impact on your HR. Kinda ruined the HR break buzz I usually have with these games. Damn.

    metal gear survive, the metal gear game that was made after they threw Kojima in the trash. You have to pay for aditional save slots. TBH I can understand payed for cosmetics to an extent...but when they are in tandem with having to pay to be able to use said dlc...or just having to pay for something that litterally is no effort on there part considering this isn't even an mmo...it really escelates...I suppose I bit of context is that rise is the first game in the series to actually keep me in beyond the tutorial...
