Hunters hear me! Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Director Kenji Oguro offered an in-depth look at the post-launch content coming to the game.
They showcased exciting co-op gameplay, a new story trailer and so much more. In addition to the new story trailer providing one final look at the gripping narrative in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, the extensive post-launch roadmap also detailed the challenging and rewarding end-game content awaiting Monster Riders after the game’s July 9th, release on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
In addition to the already announced first post-launch update, which brings the fan-favourite Palamute from Monster Hunter Rise as a ridable Monstie to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin on July 15th, the special program detailed five additional free updates coming to the game through October.
Title Update 2 arrives on August 5th and introduces the gilded Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth as a new co-op quest for Monster Riders to tackle together. While Kulve Taroth will not be available as a ridable Monstie, materials from her quest will be invaluable for crafting powerful new equipment. This update will also introduce Hellblade Glavenus and Boltreaver Astalos as additional Monsties.
Bring your friend along for the adventure
During the co-op gameplay reveal, Tsujimoto-san and Oguro-san provided an extensive look at the many ways that players can collaborate in co-op expeditions, including exploration, strategizing on combat, discovering Monster Dens, selecting eggs, and hatching new and unique Monsties. Which to me sounds like any gamers dream. To join with your friends and help build a little den of Monsties sounds like so much fun.
The duo also sat down to share a behind-the-scenes look at how the original Monster Hunter Stories was first created, what they set out to accomplish with a sequel and their inspiration for the designs of new and returning characters.
While the special program offered a wealth of new information for eager fans, those interested in experiencing Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin firsthand can now enjoy a free Trial Version on Nintendo Switch. A free Trial Version on PC will release on July 9th, alongside the release of the full version of the game. This will allow anyone still on the fence to test their might against the monsters out there right now.
I myself would pick this up if I wasn’t already addicted to my adventures in Eorzea.
