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



Monster Hunter Rise’s first free title update comes in late April and will add Chameleos, Apex Rathalos, an unlocked “Hunter Rank” hood and more. Capcom revealed the details in Title Update Ver. 2.0 in a blog post, while also suggesting that some extra monsters and a few other related features will be added as well.

Apex Rathalos seems to be part of a Rampage hunt, which is a mix between traditional Monster Hunter games and a tower defense game. Apex monsters, like Apex Arzuros, are super-powerful versions of monsters that sometimes uncover these challenges.

Title update Ver. 3.0 was also teased, and although it does not currently have a release window, it promises to “contain more monsters, as well as an extra ending to the Monster Hunter Rise story.”

In our Monster Hunter Rise review, we said that it “mixes classic Monster Hunter ideas with some of the world’s best improvements and a whole bunch of clever new mechanics.”
