"Monster Hunter Rise" 3.0 update officially releases on Thursday! It brings huge in-game content additions--including Valstrax and Zinogre variations--that should keep players entertained for the next few months.
As announced earlier this month, "Monster Hunter Rise" update 3.0 releases on May 27 at 5 PM PT or 8 PM ET. The patch takes around 1.4GB, and the game requires 2.9GB of free space. The download time could take between a few minutes to a few hours, depending on your internet speed. The Downloadable content (DLC) also features a new story ending, two boss enemies, and a bunch of improvements.
Note that after the download, per Eurogamer, free updates, new event quests, collaborations and DLC are scheduled to be added between July to August.
Crimson Glow Valstrax and Apex Zinogre
Two fearsome monsters have been added to the game: Crimson Glow Valstrax and Apex Zinogre. Capcom described these monsters to be filled with rampant energy, and could easily dominated the battlefield with their wrath and terror.
The official game's YouTube channel posted a video preview on the monster's battle formation and skillsets. You should spend the majority of your gameplay desperately dodging their overpowered attacks!
Gamespot also reported that the game gets a new ending in its story. After many chapters of searching for each other, the Elder Dragons Narwa and Ibushi have finally reunited. You need to defeat them both to end Kamura of the Rampage.
Lastly, the 3.0 update brings a new wave of cosmetic DLC! You can expect new voices, hairstyles, gestures, face paint, armor, music, and other cosmetic options to use on your Hunter.
