Monster Hunter Rise

Capcom have detailed the free content and DLC coming to Monster Hunter Rise in their June and July updates.

Thanks to a previously released roadmap, we knew the Capcom Collabs would introduce layered armor that references other Capcom titles. This will start with a quest to unlock layered armor to make your Palico look like Tsukino from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Version 3.1 and other updates would add more Event quests, DLC launches, and Capcom Collabs.

We now see the Capcom Collab 1 in action, along with confirmation of release dates. The Event Quest rewarding the Palico Layered Armor Tsukino launches June 18th, while those who have save data from Monster Hunter Stories 2 can unlock their Rider layered armor on July 9th.

The content of Version 3.1 was also shown; with five event quests (including rewards such as black leather pants, the play possum gesture, shadow shades, and festival-themed stickers. Paid DLC launching at the time includes festival themed layered armor for you, your Palico and Palamute, two new Cohoot outfits, two new hunter voices (Kagero, and Rondine), and a new dancing emote.

Version 3.1 launches June 24th. You can find the June and July update trailer below.
