Capcom has announced the next Monster Hunter digital event, and it’s scheduled for next week. The event will showcase Monster Hunter Rise update 2.0, a new monster for the game, Chameleos, and Apex Rathalos. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will also have its section in the event.

Capcom confirmed the event through a post from the official Monster Hunter Twitter account, scheduled for 7 AM PT on April 27. During the event, developers will showcase the first free update for Monster Hunter Rise, update 2.0, and two highly anticipated monsters to hunt down.

The latest information on Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will also be a core part of this presentation. Whether that comes in the form of a new trailer, gameplay segment, or feature reveal is unknown.

While the information on Monster Hunter Rise‘s update 2.0 is light, we know the download’s approximate size. 0.9GB will be required to download the update, but for those updating the game for the first time, the update will be 1.5GB instead.

Before release, Capcom confirmed that both Chameleos and Apex Rathalos would join Monser Hunter Rise in April. Likely, Capcom will also show players a hint of what’s coming to the game in the next major update at some point during next week’s event as well.
