Next month in a post-launch update, Capcom will add Apex Rathalos which you can get a look at toward the end of the launch trailer posted below.

As part of April’s Title Update Version 2, Apex Rathalos will be joining Chameleos as the next monster to fight. Going by the trailer, there will be “several new monsters” added, but Capcom didn’t reveal what they are or how many others to expect.

The late April update will also unlock Hunter Rank. You can start earning HR points once you unlock your Hunter rank.

Title Update 3 is also in the works, and while there isn’t a release date for it, there will be more monsters and a new ending to look forward to.
