Capcom details Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin post-launch roadmap

More On: Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin seems like a pretty big game from everything I've seen; I had zero expectation that this JRPG based on the world of Monster Hunter would offer any DLC or expansions whatsoever. But today Capcom revealed that not only is there a roadmap for future content, but it's massive. Check it out:

 Wings of Ruin has players running around, slaying monsters and raising their eggs as helpful, ridable "monsties". To make a long story short, here's what's on the docket:

  • July 15 - Palamute's added as a ridable Monstie.
  • August 5 - Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth added as a new co-op quest, complete with new equipment that can be created from its material drops
  • Early September - New monsties Soulseer Mizutsune, Elderfrost Gammoth, and Oroshi Kirin
  • Late September - New monsties Dreadking Rathalos and Molten Tigrex; a new high-difficulty co-op quest revolving around Kulve Taroth
  • October - Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian and a "mysterious new monster". 

This being a JRPG, I'm surprised that there is a multiplayer component at all, but from the sounds of these updates it feels like co-op will be a major component of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

Folks interested in trying out Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin can give the game a shot right now; a demo is available on Switch, and another will be arriving on PC on July 9. Your save file will carry over when the full game releases later this month.
