Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, the second game in Capcom’s RPG spin-off series, comes to Switch and PC next Friday, 9th July, and, much like its mainline sibling, will enjoy a healthy dose of post-launch support. And now, with its arrival in sight, Capcom has shared a roadmap outlining those post-release content plans.
One week after Monster Hunter Stories 2’s launch, Capcom will deploy its first (and previously detailed) post-launch update, introducing introducing Monster Hunter Rise’s dog-like Palamute companion as a rideable Monstie.
That’ll be followed by a second update on 5th August introducing Hellblade Glavenus and Boltreaver Astalos as new Monsties, alongside a new co-op quest – featuring the gilded Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth – that Monster Riders can tackle together. Capcom notes that while the Elder Dragon won’t be rideable, materials gained from the quest can be used to craft “powerful” new equipment.
