Monster Hunter Rise Roadmap and Schedule (Free Title Updates)
The main roadmap for Monster Hunter Rise has been revealed. There are four main updates to look forward too, including Capcom tie-ins and new DLC. Here's the key points:
- Capcom Collab 1 - Mid June
- DLC and Event Quests - End of June
- Capcom Collab 2 - End of July

Mid June - Monster Hunter Rise 3.1
E3 Update - June 14, 2021
Monster Hunter Rise 3.1 releases 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.
There will be 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 we will see new DLC and Event Quests 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 coming at the end of July. We don't know what the tie-in will be yet, but some kind of Resident Evil content is definitely likely given previous DLC. We'll also get more DLC and Event Quests.
End of August
Finally, we have the Collab 3 pack coming at the end of August. Again, we have no details on what this might be. Expect it to tie-in with other Capcom series though. There will also be new Event Quests and DLC, though no details were given on what might be included.
What's Been Released So Far?
So far in 2021 we've seen two major updates to Monster Hunter Rise. These have been the Version 2.0 and 3.0 releases. These added Decorations, new endings, new monsters and even new weapons. With the release in May the game has a solid endgame, laying the foundations for future updates.
What About the Rest of 2021?
Other than that we don't know what's planned for the rest of 2021. There will be some crossover content to tie-in with Monster Hunter Stories 2, and a PC release for the game in early 2022. We'll be sure to update this page when we know more.
