Fans of the Monster Hunter games franchise can enjoy the new Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin firsthand by playing the game's free Trial version, available on Nintendo Switch. For players who would rather experience the game on PC, a free Trial version will become available via Steam on July 9, 2021 along with the game's full release.
The post-launch roadmap details the exciting end-game content awaiting Riders after the July 9 release of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Check it out below!
The first post-launch update (July 15) will introduce fan-favorite Palamute as a ridable Monstie.
The second title update (August 5) brings a new co-op quest to the game, in which Riders can team up with friends to bring down the gilded Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth. Kulve Taroth will not be a ridable Monstie, but the materials obtained from her quest can be used towards crafting powerful new equipment. In addition to the Elder Dragon, two new Monsties will also be introduced: Hellblade Glavenus and Boltreaver Astalos.
The third title update (early September) introduces three additional Monsties: Soulseer Mizutsune, Elderfrost Gammoth, and Oroshi Kirin.
The fourth title update (late September) brings Dreadking Rathalos and Molten Tigrex into the cast of ridable Monsties. Kulve Tartoth also makes her return in a high-difficulty co-op quest that offers even greater rewards.
The fifth title update (October) introduces new Monsties Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian. A new high-difficulty co-op quest heralds the arrival of a special Monster, whose identity is shrouded in mystery. This quest will offer players the chance to obtain incredibly useful materials for strong equipment.
