Mid June - Monster Hunter Rise 3.1
E3 Update - June 14, 2021
Monster Hunter Rise 3.1 released June 24 and adds multiple new event quests and some paid DLC, along with a new Monster Hunter Stories 2 collaboration event.
The event quests include hunts revolving around Goss Harag, Almudron, and more and reward you with event-exclusive items in return, including new outfit sets.
Monster Hunter Rise 3.1 paid DLC adds a few new outfits plus Rhondine and Kamura shopkeep voices to the mix.
After June 25 when the Monster Hunter Stories 2 demo releases, you can link your save data and get a special Tsukino-inspired layered armor set for Palico companions.
A second round of DLC released on July 9 in conjunction with Monster Hunter Stories 2's release date, though Capcom hasn't announced specifics for that one yet.
There's also a Monster Hunter Rise E3 trailer showing the new content in more detail:
End of July - DLC and Event Quests
At the end of June new DLC and Event Quests were added to MH Rise. We don't know anything about these yet, though they will likely add new monsters and maybe even new mechanics.
End of July - Capcom Collab 2
The second Capcom Collab is an Okami tie-in, allowing players to pick up the Okami Palamute armour. You can read more about it here.
Street Fighter Akuma Collaboration Pack - August 27
The Capcom Collab 3 spot added an Akuma Layered Armour Set from Street Fighter. A trailer was released, showing a new hand to hand style of fighting associated with the armour. It looks to be some mix of Sword and Shield, and throwing knives, with certain elements hidden.
Capcom Collab 4: Mega Man 11
On September 24, Capcom collab pack 4 will drop, adding in a Palamute skin based on Rush the dog. This is styled after their Mega Man 11 appearance, and features certain visual changes. Here's how to unlock Rush.
What's Been Released So Far?
