Beast Breaks down the Monster Hunter Digital May Event
Good day gamers and welcome back to more updates for Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. We are coming up with a big gaming month which some of us gamers are excited about. June is usually the month for all things gaming news with upcoming titles and new updates. Today Capcom had another Monster Hunter Digital Event for the last week of May and we are going to take a deep dive right into it.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Update:
Apparently, there is a ray of light that is causing Monsters to go into a Frenzy! However, here is a quote from capcom clearing some things up.
New story details about the protagonist’s connection with Razewing Ratha, the whereabouts of their grandfather the legendary Monster Rider Red, and some returning characters from Monster Hunter Stories. While the connection between the rage rays, the global disappearance of Rathalos and the birth of Razewing Ratha is unclear, players can rely upon the assistance of their Battle Buddy Avinia and her Monstie Frostfang who make their return from Monster Hunter Stories to help unravel the mystery.
That is all groovy and all, but there was a bit of information that I personally wanted to clarify and happily, they did.
In order to collect new Monstie eggs, players will have to plumb the depths of any Monster Dens they encounter out in the field. Monster Dens come in all shapes and sizes, with rarer dens containing elusive monster eggs which have the potential for hard-to-find genes. After returning to the Stables with new eggs in tow, players can hatch the eggs to discover what new Monstie they’ve acquired, and use the Rite of Channeling feature to transfer unique genes from one Monstie to another. By combining genes of the same element or attack type, players can create a team of incredibly specialized Monsties, or mix genes from different monsters to create a more versatile Monstie, capable of using skills of every attack type and element.
I like the idea of exploration in order to level up your Monsters. This gives this game an abundance of replay value. It also sounds like a kind of fusion mutation to enhance your monstie for better battles. As we saw in the trailer Rathalos took on Nergigante and that made me go hmmm. How strong would you have to make Rath in order to tackle a god-tier monster like Nerg? This is fantastic news and a great step up from the first game.
Monster Hunter Rise Update:
Monster Hunter Rise came out a few months ago and we already had a few updates. Today’s event touched base on more to come. In this new update called Version 3.0, we got to check out a new monster invading the lands.
First up, is the arrival of a new variant of Valstrax, the flagship monster from Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. This mysterious Elder Dragon is known by the name Crimson Glow Valstrax and can soar through the skies by changing the shape of its wings, allowing it to fly and attack from unusually high altitudes. Next, Apex Zinogre enters the fray with an electric “golden lighting” look and different attacks that might leave hunters in shock. Additionally, a new quest featuring an epic showdown with the Thunder Serpent Narwa and Wind Serpent Ibushi will provide players with a highly-anticipated new ending to the storyline.
All these new features will be available later on today for free in the Version 3.0 update. This is not bad at all when you think about the free content already in Monster Hunter Rise.
The final bit of news is for you fashion-oriented hunters that want to strut your stuff while tracking. I will deem this spring collection into summer, because why not look good on a hunt? DLC 3 pack will be available today. The DLC 3 pack will have new voice options, gestures, hairstyles, sticker sets, and background music. The lineup for Monster Hunter Rise will be dropping often in June, July, and August so stay tuned for more updates. I am personally looking forward to the new events as well.
As always happy hunting gamers and be well. – Beast Out –
