Monster Hunter Rise: April 2021 free update adds Apex Rathalos and Chameleos

Must read

Monster Hunter Rise’s The first free title update will arrive at the end of April and will add Chameleos, Apex Rathalos, an unlocked “Hunter Rank” cap, and more. Capcom has revealed details of Title Update Ver. 2.0 in one blog post, while hinting that some additional monsters and “a few other related features” will also be added.

Apex Rathalos appears to be part of a Rampage Hunt, which is a mix between traditional Monster Hunter gameplay and a tower defense game. Apex Monsters, like the Apex Arzuros, are super strong versions of monsters that sometimes top these challenges.

Title update Ver. 3.0 has also been teased, and while it currently doesn’t have a release window, it promises to “introduce additional monsters as well as an additional ending to the Monster Hunter Rise story arc.”

In our Monster Hunter Rise review, we said it “mixes classic Monster Hunter ideas with some of the best upgrades in the world and a whole bunch of clever new mechanics of its own.”
