Monster Hunter Rise Version 3.0 to Release Later Today

The time to settle things has finally come



Are you looking forward to Monster Hunter Rise‘s Version 3.0 update? I know that I am! And, fortunately, it looks like none of us will have to wait for very long, as CAPCOM confirmed during this morning’s Monster Hunter Digital Event that it will be releasing later today!

Version 3.0 will give players plenty of new content to enjoy, including the chance to hunt brand-new monsters as well as the chance to hunt pre-existing monsters in new ways. Crimson Glow Valstrax, an all-new variant of Monster Hunter Generations‘ flagship monster, will now be available for hunters both brave and skilled enough to take it on. Apex Zinogre will be also be added to the list of ever-growing Apex Monsters.

Finally—and perhaps most importantly when it comes to 3.0’s new hunts—is the addition of a new battle with Thunder Serpent Narwa and Wind Serpent Ibushi. What fate awaits Kamura Village at the end of this battle? You’ll have to see things through to the end to find out for yourself!

Interested in celebrating the new Monster Hunter Rise update in style? Well, you’re in luck, because the MHR DLC Pack 3 will available for purchase later today as well! As with the previous two DLC Packs, DLC Pack 3 will include new voice options, gestures, hairstyles, sticker sets, background music, and more. The DLC within this pack will be available for purchase separately, or as an entire bundle.

While 3.0 may be the last major update that we currently know of, CAPCOM has assured us that this is not the final time that players will be seeing new content in Monster Hunter Rise. New collaboration quests and event quests are already in the works, and players can expect to see additional kinds of extra content in the future as well (although I couldn’t tell you what that means at this time, sadly).



Monster Hunter Rise Version 3.0 is slated to release later today. Are you excited to go out on some brand-new hunts? What other kinds of content would you like to see in the future? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
